I dunno. Was it closing time? And where was this wart?

I dig a nice big wart on a chic's tongue. Great for scratching my balls.

HPV is really not a big deal for most GUYS but for women it can be a killer. As noted, most people have HPV with no symptoms. If you have had sex with more then four partners, it is probable you have HPV--even with a condom.

The religious right may be right: monogamy makes a ton of sense. At least from a STD perspective.

By the way, I had a wart show up on my finger a couple years ago: HPV. I got it. I have never seen a genital wart (THANK GAWD!), but I could have that too. Who knows. I know I most likely don't have genital herpes due to a Western Blot test earlier this summer but did not get tested for HPV or Hepatitus C (2% of us have that...).

By the way, Herpes may not be an open sore. You may have it asymptomatically (no symptoms...).

Also keep in mind that just because YOU may be monogamous does not necessarily mean that your partner is being faithful to you. Your partner could then very easily get it and pass it on to you, as with any other STD. As was stated earlier: For all you know, you could have it and be unaware. I guarantee you that your perspective would change if you later found out that you had it.

Be careful who you share your body with. Just because someone has them doesn't mean it is their fault, or that they haven't gotten them 'taken care of.' Don't let ignorance rule your life.

If you knew that if you dated this person, you would spend the rest of your life with them in a faithful, loving relationship, but they had warts, would you date them? Of course. As with anything, do some investigation before passing judgment.

Here's a sobering thought: approximately 75% of sexually active people will contract HPV (genital warts) during their lifetime, most don't ever show symptoms, and condoms do not prevent it. The internal variety of HPV is a risk factor for cervical and other genital cancers, the external variety is purely cosmetic and benign in nature. Its pretty simple to deal with, and cryotherapy is the most common form of treatment...the virus can stay in your system and can recurr.

So for all of you who said you'd never date someone with HPV (genital warts), the reality is statisically speaking, you probably already have.

well at least someone ^^^^^ bothered to read the stats.

I repeat:
75% of sexually active adults WILL contract some strain of the HPV virus (genital warts) in their lifetime. Odds are most of the folks posting in this thread have been exposed, are carriers, and just don't know it.

No STDs is better, but one has to be realistic about the stats.

Unless all your partners were virgins what makes you think you're immune?

(sorry, people who have that "it could never happen to me" attitude are a pet peeve of mine...I don't care if you've had 1 or 100 sexual partners, STDs are a reality...be informed, responsible & get tested.)

It's a fact, proven, the number one cause of death in the entire world is birth.
We all have "warts" be them on our bewalls or our souls. If you wanna have sex have it responsibly. Meaning whatever the parties deem responsible. Blanket generalizations are minutia and such boring topics.

Paps, swabs....when I go in for this type of testing, I bring a list with me and ensure the doctor tests for everything.

Some say there is no cure for cancer, and you people are on here freaking out about genital warts turning it into some horror forum...

This one man had cancer the doctors told him he was going to die in 6 months. That would be it, no more treatments there was nothing they could do for him. So he decides to spend the rest of his days enjoying life, walking down by the ocean everyday. 6 months goes by, 8months goes by, a year goes by, and he still is feeling fine, better everyday. He goes back to the doctor and they do more tests, finally telling him that his cancer is completely gone.. a miracle some may say...
and this man is still living to this day.. true story

You say there might not be a cure, but they can go away on their own. Anyone on here is aware about stds, if you do a simple search you will have more information on diseases you could probabaly ever read in a years worth of time.
LOL I cant believe how much information you all offered on STD's, I feel like im back in elementary school again being all scared about catching something.
If you are stressed, sick, unhealthy, and worry alot about something you are probably more likely to catch something, like with types of colds that are virusus, after you get them, there isnt a cough drop you can take for it, but once its gone you have healed and do not catch it again. Its called immune systems,, some of us have them, some of you are sick all the time, my advice to you... stay inside and let the rest of us live our lives..

I guess being sick with colds and flus when your a child eventually pays off when your older, except maybe if you venture off into forigen countries.

good luck to you all and dont let some doctor decide if your going to live or not

HVP is preventable, and treatments are readily available if someone notices a problem which leads them to testing and an accurate test result.

http://www.cdc.gov/std/HPV/STDFact-HPV.htmand


... Approximately 20 million people are currently infected with HPV. At least 50 percent of sexually active men and women acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. By age 50, at least 80 percent of women will have acquired genital HPV infection. About 6.2 million Americans get a new genital HPV infection each year.



...There is no "cure" for HPV infection, although in most women the infection goes away on its own. The treatments provided are directed to the changes in the skin or mucous membrane caused by HPV infection, such as warts and pre-cancerous changes in the cervix.


Cancer link ???


All types of HPV can cause mild Pap test abnormalities which do not have serious consequences. Approximately 10 of the 30 identified genital HPV types can lead, in rare cases, to development of cervical cancer. Research has shown that for most women (90 percent), cervical HPV infection becomes undetectable within two years. Although only a small proportion of women have persistent infection, persistent infection with "high-risk" types of HPV is the main risk factor for cervical cancer.


^^That means that out of 100 + strains of the virus, there are 30 that may in rare cases lead to a small portion of those women with that particular untreated strain might be at risk for cancer.

http://www.cdc.gov/std/HPV/STDFact-HPV-vaccine.htm

And there is a vaccine is available. Get vaccinated and get informed ~ accurant knowledge and information is far more productive than worrying about something that is preventable and treatable. JMO
