Expert Q & A Answers About Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
I have some little red bumps in my groin area. They aren’t inside my vagina or on the lips...is it possible that I have genital warts?
My boyfriend just came home after being away for four years. He got tested for STDs and found out he has genital warts. I was tested too, and I’m clear. But we’re due to get married so I want to know: if his warts are removed, can I still contract the virus? Can I only get it if he has an outbreak?
I’m a 25-year-old female and I have genital warts on the inside of my vagina–not on my vulva. Is there anything I can do to get rid of them? I’ve had them for over nine months and sometimes they go away and come back. Are there any holistic or natural medicines I could use instead?
Hi. My girlfriend just found out that she has HPV. I’m fairly certain I have it, too, because we’ve had unprotected sex. She’s on the pill, so we figured that would be okay. She’s slept with two other people besides me and used condoms. She’s my first and only partner...so I’m wondering how I can know for sure if I have HPV and if there are any treatments for it. Also, will I have the same type she has and will it cause warts?
I’ve heard that anal sex can cause anal cancer. Why is that? Does it have to do with STDs?
