Expert Q & A Answers About genital warts
My girlfriend and I just started experimenting sexually and now I have some bumps on my genitals. We haven’t even had sex yet...but I put two fingers in her vagina and then masturbated an hour later without washing my hands. Can I get genital warts from this?
Are there different types of HPV? If I have the kind that causes cervical cancer...will I also get genital warts?
Are all human papillomavirus (HPV) strains the same? I had an abnormal Pap smear and my doctor says I have HPV which can lead to cervical cancer if left untreated. Does that mean I could also get genital warts?
I was recently diagnosed with an HPV outbreak on my anus and I’ve had outbreaks on my penis before. Now, it looks like I might have a wart or a stye on my eyelid. Are there treatments for my eyelid (if it is a wart)? I’m a little disturbed by this whole thing and would appreciate your help.
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?
If I had sex with my girlfriend, and neither of us has a sexually transmitted disease (STD), can an STD form on its own? Also, I’ve had unprotected sex with my girlfriend using baby oil, and now I have little pimples or blisters on the bottom of my head of my penis. Could that be from the baby oil? Or could it be something else?
I was in a five-year relationship with a man who had been treated for genital warts before I met him. He also had a herpes outbreak that started on his back and later showed up on his genitals. I only used the pill for birth control while we were together. We never had sex when he had a herpes outbreak, and I don’t have any symptoms of herpes or warts, but I’m wondering if I could transmit either disease in new relationships.
My friend might have HPV...she went to the doctor to get tested and she’s waiting for the results. Assuming she does have HPV, what are the chances that she can continue to have a normal sex life?
I have warts on my hands and fingers. If I touch my girlfriend’s genitals, could I give her genital warts?
I have tiny bumps between my anus and vaginal opening that a doctor said are genital warts. I want another opinion with an HPV test, but I don’t know where to go. And also, is an HPV test a culture test like you get for a bacterial infection? My boyfriend and I have been getting things that look like pimples on our stomachs and butts. I’ve been getting them on my legs too...I never get pimples there. What could this be?
My partner went for a routine Pap test and found out she has HPV...the kind that causes cervical cancer. I’m worried about how this could affect me. The gynecologist said that HPV can’t affect men and there aren’t any tests to see if men have it. Is that true? Will this type of HPV give me warts? Should we only have sex with a condom and no oral contact until we get the results back?
