I have warts inside my vagina and outside. For those which are outside my doctor told me to use condyline but I can't stand the pain so I've decided to switch it with Wartec.My boyfriend doesn't have them but we practiced unsafe sex since we've met and he told me i had those warts before we've met so probably he has the virus.We both started a treatment for imunity with isoprinostine.What else should we do?
After I finish the treatment will we be able to have sex without protection again?
Genital warts is a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection caused by certain sub-types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Genital warts usually occur in clusters in the genito-anal area. In women they might be found on the inside or outside of the vagina or on the cervix. In men, they are often found on the penis (on the tip or on the shaft), whereas they can be found around the anus in both sexes.
Since there is no cure for human papillomavirus infections, all the efforts should be towards treating the present genital warts and preventing future appearances of new genital warts. There are several products to threat genital warts, most of them containing podophyllotoxin. Cryosurgery, liquid nitrogen surgery or laser ablation might be recommended by a dermatologist whom you are advised to visit, in order to remove the warts.
