Can i transfer the genital warts virus to my boyfriend?

How likely am I to transfer the genital warts virus to my boyfriend? I have had genital warts since april - but were not treated until aug and officially removed and gone since early september following 3 treatments of acid. I went for a 4th check to make sure they were gone... I have 4 removed. Now it has been 3 months, and I am unfortunately one of the frequent patients to experience a second round of warts having just come from the doctor diagnosing 2 warts (same place they were before). I am wondering, how likely am i to have given the virus to my boyfriend? I got the virus from a partner who i was with whilst on a break up from my boyfriend last Christmas, so my boyfriend and I slept together unprotected after this when we got back together. As I had no symptoms I did not know I had the virus and we were sleeping together unprotected. We have since broke up but are still friends and I am wondering how likely it is that he is infected? And if we sleep together again, how likely am i to give him the virus with protection? I meant to say, how likely am i to infect him once the warts are gone and I have no open sores...

Better have protected sex always rather than worrying what can happen. Open sores are main thing that can transmit to partners. Any other comments, let us wait and see.

I recently noticed a tiny bump that looked similiar to an in-grown hair on my genitals and had a blood test done covering the most common STDs and it came back positive for genital warts. I have been with my partner for 7 years and we have both been faithful for all 7 years. My partner was a virgin when we met, and I had one other partner that was also a virgin. Is it possible to be dormant for 7 years? And also are there forms of warts that are on hands or inanimate objects that can transfer to genitals? Can virgins have HPV? I also had the same test done about 4 months ago and came back negative on all, is there a possibilty to be a false positive on my test?

I recently had unprotected intercourse with a female partner, the next morning I had slight tingle/irritating sensation inside the tip of my penis nothing too painful and it dose not hurt to urinate or ejaculate. Over the past 3 days I went and go tested to STDs and am awaiting results during this time I have developed lower abdominal pain (near the bladder) as well as sore and tender testicles I m not sure what this could be as I have not visible sore on my genitals or discharge.

Hi Dr. Dilip Raja,

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.

hello i have pain after urination, weak urine stream and trouble releasing all urine from bladder. also feel some stillin tubes. slight pain during ejaculation. burning worse at night but starting to be more frequent threw day. had this about 3 weeks with bad burning so i went in after 3 weeks of trying to drink lots of water bc i thought it was a urinary track infection since my wife gets them alot. after 3 weeks wheni took pee test i was tested postitive for clamitia, but my wife who i had unprotected sex with the whole 3 weeks with symtoms came out negative for everythiig and got full paps and swab done, when i returned for 2nd test after meds i could alrdy feel it comeing back, but test came up negative for all stds. whats wrong? its becomeing more difficult to pass urine, more frequent burning the burning is like it pulsates from groin area when it does burn not a steady burn. it can hurt more when flexing that area or moving postions in bed. 26 years old 6 foot 140p ptsd and depression from iraq
