User :   how do I know if I have hpv in the throat                                                       
Doctor :   HI
Doctor :   I am Dr. xxxx
User :   nice to speak with you im xxxx
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   I have few questions before I answer you, may I?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Since when are you sexually active?
Doctor :   and what is your age?
User :   Two years ago I'm with the same guy I lost my virginity to, I was unfaithful 9 to 10 months ago. My encounter with the second male was for maybe a total of 2 minutes. I'm 19.
User :   I will give you a brief back round of the situation so this question doesn't seem out of no wher
Doctor :   Do you have multiple partners?
Doctor :   I mean apart from the above two
User :   No. Just for 2 years with that one male and that one encounter with the other.
Doctor :   Do you have oral sex with your partner?
User :   Only with the male of 2 yrs
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Do you have any white colored plaques / bumps in the mouth?
User :   I had went to the doctor on monday to be checked for a yeast infection and during the visit when she took the swab she said "oh looks like you are having an outbreak" I had no idea what she was speaking of and said that it looks like it is genital warts. She did not confirm the diagnosis and asked for me to come back in two weeks. Ever since the visit I have obviously looked for myself and in hopes that it was razor burn I picked at them, I know that was a mistake, because now it is sore. Also before I touched them they were all smooth not protruding at all, now some look like white heads.
Doctor :   especially at the angle of mouth
User :   Nothing in my mouth that I can see, throat just hurts.
Doctor :   Listen, HPV cause warts in the mouth is rare
Doctor :   and very rare when compared to genital wartss
Doctor :   If you do not have any thing in the mouth then you should not worry
Doctor :   The throat hurting is something different
Doctor :   The oral warts are something like \in this picture
Doctor :
User :   I'm deeply concerned and going out of my mind wondering if I do have genital warts, I feel like a gross person. My partner of 2 yrs swears up and down he was and is clean , but if he had the hpv he could not have known. I do remember one instance when he what looked like a large white head on his shaft white in the middle red all around.
User :   When we began dating he had piercings on his shaft called a ladder, ever since I've began having sex 2 years ago I am constantly getting bv infections this is my first yeast. I take the treatment get better just for it to come back, my doctor believes my partner is causing the problems. Is it possible his piercings have caused damage inside making me more prone to these infections.
User :   We do not use condoms because he cannot stay hard with it on, so I take the BC. Unfortunately he is the kind of person who will say anything wrong with me is because of me.
Doctor :   If your partner has multiple partners you are prone for these infections and that is big risk factor
User :   He has had 70 some partners
User :   But swears and swears he is faithful to me
Doctor :   If you have unprotected sex, then it is most important risk factor
Doctor :   Next thing, you shoudl not be worried about the genital warts if they are. You have to be more cautious from now
Doctor :   leave the past
Doctor :   and do not negotiate with him any more
User :   If they are warts is it possible for me to pass them to other parts of my body such as hands face etc
Doctor :   There is a chance but not necessarily
User :   I know you more than likely cannot answer this but would it be more likely I contracted it from the 2 yr partner or the one night with the other male, the issue with this is the incubation period is just so wide range
Doctor :   The 2 yr partner
Doctor :   than one night stand partner
Doctor :   is more likely to have put you at risk
Doctor :   Can you see the different lesions near your genitalia?
User :   I had the gardisil shot well before I was ever sexually active, I have very very sensitive skin. I spoke with a dr earlier on here and needless to say they made me a little upset by syaing to 2 yr partner shouldnt be considered because he swore he was clean. But there is a chance of geting it from just one very brief contact
Doctor :   Did you see a Dermatologist for the same?
User :   I did not see a dermatologost just an ob , the supposed warts are at the very front of the vagina on the right wall on the inside very few on the left some are protruding some are not before you get to the clit and hood
Doctor :   There is a chance of getting it from very brief contact but less likely than the 2 yr one
Doctor :   Let me say in summary, what is the problem and what needs to be done
Doctor :   Do not be confused and upset of what has happened
Doctor :   You have a wart like bumps on the vaginal area which your Ob Gyn suspects to be HPV.
User :   yes
Doctor :   It is likely to be HPV since you have a partner who is suspected by infected
Doctor :   The vaccine is good to take but cannot prevent all the genital warts
User :   She said very very suspicious, I had no idea they were even there.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   What needs to be done now?
Doctor :   1) Keep yourself away from sex
Doctor :   2) Avoid unprotected sex
Doctor :   3) Do not negotiate with your previous partner(s)
Doctor :   4) Consult a local dermatologist for a second opinion on the genital lesions
Doctor :   5) Oral warts are very rare hence do not get panicky about them
User :   I picked at them so now they are sore and ever since picking more have protruded they look like white heads I will never pick at them again , is there something I can do to ease the soreness/pain she has advised me to stop using diaper wipes I have been wearing regular underwear not thongs to let it breathe i suppose. what can i do to help them not hurt
Doctor :   6) Leave aboiut your past life and think about future progressively and positively
Doctor :   You shoiuld not pick them, Do not wear diaper wipes
Doctor :   let them heal on their own
Doctor :   You can pop an over the counter pain killer
User :   I will most definitly obstain from sex and use condoms, the larger issue is how to confront him because at the moment he doesn't know and I didn't plan to say anything until they were confirmed
Doctor :   Do not wait for confirmation
Doctor :   Just blatantly avoid him with some reasons
Doctor :   You cannot compromise on your health and suspicion
User :   thank you very much i appreciate your help today
Doctor :   Thanks
Doctor :   for consulting me
Doctor :   Bye for now
