Yes to both: You have both been exposed to the hpv viruses. The strain which causes warts is low risk for cervical cancer. You may get a wart eventually but it is easily managed. One option is aldara, (imiquimod) a cream that will help with the wart issue. I would probably use condoms when someone has a wart but if you stay monogamous, in time the virus may clear. It will not create issues of fertility. Gd luc.

Yes, but not now!: Protected sex til his warts are treated. After that some form of contraception until you're really, really sure this is the guy. You don't want to have a pregnancy make your decision about a life partner. Sorry but first loves at 17 don't always turn out to be the right lifelong partner.

A member asked:

If my child has a fever, will he have a febrile seizure?

Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: Febrile seizures are common in children between 6 months and 6 years of age. They occur when your child's temperature raises rapidly. So, no, not all children with fevers will have a febrile seizure. About one in twenty-five children in this age group will have a febrile seizure. But the risk is slightly higher if your child has a sibling who has had a febrile seizure in the past.

Circular muscle: The lining of the vagina(epithelium) is surrounded by circular muscle that can contract around objects and a potential space that can expand as well. Expansion projects include childbirth, sex and tampon placement.
