I have been dating this guy for over 5 months now, and the topic of birth control has finally come up. Well when I was on my way to make random phone calls to find center to obtain it, I came across a std clinic that I figured i' should invest my time in. Well upon my visit I was told that I may possibly have an hpv (basically an unwanted wart, but most likely may or may not be a wart) well the doctor had told me that I should more then likely get it checked out more thoroughly by my guino. So thats my next move. But my main concern is that I may have infected my b/f and now the decision of whether or not we will be more serious then what we are now. Our decision has been to stay truthful and faithful (monogamous) toward each other. Im just thankful that he has stuck around with me knowing my situtation. Well my concern or question is, how do I know I have infected him, and if I havn't, staying sexually active with him, doesn't that give him the possibility of obtaining what I have? And if he does already have it, which I think undoubtably he does. Will us being sexually active with treatments cause any further damage then what has already happened.
Please reply and let me know. Im'scared more then anything of what could/or may not happen.
Yes, it is possible that your boyfriend, too, has hpv. I have it and unknowingly gave it to my boyfriend but he has not shown any symptoms so far. That does not go to say that your boyfriend wont. I think more women get warts than men. In my case, hpv affected my cervix and I had to have surgery. The nurse at my ob-gyn said she contracted it also and her husband has only had one wart on his penis and he had it removed. I know you are very scared and upset, I was also, but the main thing is making sure your cervix is okay and preventing cervical cancer. Men can get cancer from this also, but I do not think it is that high of a percentage. You will be fine. A lot of communication between you two is key. You all should talk about it and I could not stop apologizing for giving it to my b/f, but thank god he was understanding.
