Okay so I'm 18 years old female, a few weeks ago I found a blister where my pubic hair grows, this morning I went to the doctor - he told me he was unsure whether it was a genitsl wart as there is just one singular wart for the past few weeks. I really don't know how I could've caught this and I have had one sexual parter who I have had sex twice with using condoms carefully each time. We were both each other's first sexual partner. I am confused as to how I may have an std and I am very scared and embarrassed!

Herpes and Genital Warts Answer A53184
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Even if there is no outbreaks, HPV can spread through exchange or contact with body fluid (risk of acquiring infection is very high if sexual contact is during any outbreak), and men usually remain asymptomatic for long periods of time. It can also spread with oral sex. It is important to avoid contact with body fluid of infected person or direct contact with the warts. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the pubic bump/blister that you describe without examining you (to ascertain other characteristics) and going ahead with further evaluation. These could be warts, papilloma, folliculitis, etc. If these have been persistent or getting worse, visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest and get them examined and evaluated to look for the exact cause. Avoid self-treatment. Further treatment options can be suggested based on the examination findings and evaluation results to help you control the symptoms. You may also consider taking second opinion from a dermatologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist/dermatologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
