User :   My boyfriend talked to me today about having small cuts on his penis. He said he gets them after we have sex and then they heal but now he is scared I have been with someone else. I recently was put on an ongoing antibiotic for my kidneys and maybe that is what is doing it. I am not sure but I have not cheated on him at all. He said the first time it happened was a few weeks ago and it even hurt to urinate after sex then he noticed the cuts. He said the cuts then healed and the next time we had sex the cuts came back. What could this be? I was tested for STD's a couple months ago and he said he was too. HELP

User :   Besides that I have not had an STD I did have bacterial vaganosis like 5 months ago but have had no symptoms or anything since I finished the medication
Doctor :   HPV is considered to be the most common sexually transmitted disease in the world. Because it does not always cause symptoms, many people are unaware that they are infected with HPV.
User :   Yes, I know I actually am rechecked for it often to make sure. I had the type that caused cervical cancer
Doctor :   But sometimes, certain types of HPV can cause genital warts in males and females. Rarely, these types can also cause warts in the throat -- a condition called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis or RRP.
Doctor :   Ok.
