I am always safe, should I still get tested for genital warts?

I am always safe, should I still get tested for genital warts?

No: Despite condom use the viruses that cause genital warts can still be spread. In females, pap smears test for most of the harmful viruses. In msm (men who have sex with men), "anal pap smears" can be done. Hpv, which is a vaccine, can help protect a person from contracting the most common viruses that give rise to genital warts and cervical cancer. Both males and females can get this vaccine. ...Read more

Since my genital warts are gone, is it safe to have protected sex with my boyfriend?

Can still transmit: Even when the virus is dormant (when one is not having a wart/lesion, etc) it can still be transmitted. It is not a guarantee that he would contract the infection, but it is still a definite possibility and (unfortunately), condoms have not been shown to provide reliable prevention of hpv. Sorry. ...Read more

I have genital warts, they seem to be spreading badly . I took the shots and got tested but nothing I happening, I can't afford surgery. What can I do?

Genital warts: hello~ unfortunately there is only 2 ways to adequately deal with genital warts and that is burning them off with liquid nitrogen and using high energy Hyphricator to burn them off.Both will require a general anesthesia because of the extensive nature of the lesions. If you leave them they will most likely get worse, so my advice is have them surgically treated asap (ps: I grew up in Kitwe !) thks ...Read more

I had sex w/ my gf & found out shes a genital warts carrier. She tested neg for it, but her dr said she could be a carrier even though shes never had an outbreak. Do I have it? What should I do?

I had sex w/ my gf & found out shes a genital warts carrier. She tested neg for it, but her dr said she could be a carrier even though shes never had an outbreak. Do I have it? What should I do?

Not sure: Not sure how you know she is a carrier even though she tested negative. If she has genital warts, visibly, then she has them. She could also have HPV cervically and not have genital warts--they are different strains of the same virus. The cervical HPV strains do not cause genital warts in men. But if she has warts, those can be sexually transmitted and you could get warts as well. ...Read more
