Explain to doctor: You posted your question on our free, public, informational forum... where medical advice and medical care are not given. Try a private consultation where doctors can talk with you on video. Explain details such as the meaning of "dirty HPV underwear" and what types of activities are included in masturbation. On your screen, click on Care, then Medical Consults, then Start New. (Nov. 2019)
