I m 25 male, I have HPV warts small, molluscum contagiosum and herpes outbreak together recently...I am scared too much. I got HIV test negative.Help?

See Your Doctor: It is good that you got tested for hiv, although it can take 6 weeks or more before you may show positive from a particular encounter. You need to be tested for other more common stds (gc, chlamydia, syphilis) and make sure the diagnosis of what you have is correct. Medication can shorten the symptoms of the herpes, treatment can resolve the molluscum, and help control the hpv. ...Read more

Im scared i think I have an HPV virus i had anal sex two years ago 12 times same person, but i also think the bumps I have are ingrown hairs, not warts?

Im scared i think I have an HPV virus i had anal sex two years ago 12 times same person, but i also think the bumps I have are ingrown hairs, not warts?

HPV vs folliculitis: Ingrown hairs should have some fluid, pus or material inside the little bumps. Bumps should all be about the same size and centered on a hair. Shaving is a common cause. Warts are different. They have a velvety surface and come in different sizes and shapes. They are solid - there is nothing inside them. ...Read more

It might be 2 late: Ideally, the HPV vaccine should be given prior to age 26 and in a non pregnant state. Since you are pregnant and have already had the HPV infection, you may already have antibodies circulating that may help you minimize a subsequent recurrence. ...Read more

I was sexually active 1.5 years ago do I have contracted chlamydia or gonrrhea now,I am having vaginal pain?

I was sexually active 1.5 years ago do I have contracted chlamydia or gonrrhea now,I am having vaginal pain?

Probably not, but...: Neither chlamydia nor gonorrhea is likely to last this long; the immune system clears up most infections within a few months. However, there are exceptions and the only way to know for sure is to be tested. Neither is a likely cause of vaginal pain, but either one could cause low abdominal pain. See a doctor or clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

I have HPV virus, but i haven't done oral or anal sex , why do I have HPV virus?

Very common...: You can get hpv from regular intercourse. Hpv is so common that at least 50% of sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives. Most people with hpv do not develop symptoms or health problems from it. In 90% of cases, the body’s immune system clears hpv naturally within two years. Sometimes, hpv infections are not cleared and can cause genital warts or cervical cancer. ...Read more

I have oral herpes 1, I don't have it genitally, if I have unprotected vaginal sex can my partner get infected?

I have oral herpes 1, I don't have it genitally, if I have unprotected vaginal sex can my partner get infected?

Vaginal sex no risk: Herpes can only be transmitted by direct, personal contact with the infected area. Assuming you do not also have genital HSV1, vaginal sex cannot transmit it. However, kissing or oral sex could transmit it to his mouth or penis, respectively. He could have a blood test to see if he already has HSV1 (half the population has it). If so, he is immune to catching it again. ...Read more

Go see your doctor: Go see your family doctor for std (sexually transmitted disease/infection) testing. If you're too embarrassed to see him/her, go to your local federal/county health clinic.

Can i vaccine against HPV if I am 31y and i got hpv, would it make me safe from other hpv, which i don't have? Is it HPV vaccine universal?

HPV: The two vaccines available only are effective at protecting from the subtypes most commonly associated with cervical cancer. They are fda approved for use between age 13 and 26. At age 31 you're likely to have already been exposed to many subtypes of hpv, but you can talk to your doctor about getting the vaccine if you wish, though that would be outside fda recommendations ("off label"). ...Read more

I am in a monogamous relationship, am I safe from herpes?

I am in a monogamous relationship, am I safe from herpes?

Maybe not: Two people in a monogamous relationship must both start out free of herpes. That means "the couple" is herpes-free. Then, each partner must stay monogamous in order for herpes to not enter the couple's relationship by way of a third party. However, most adults already have herpes type 1 (but not herpes type 2) even if they don't get cold sores. Either type can cause oral or genital herpes. ...Read more
