Anyone here has genital warts. Please, help!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had sex with my new girlfriend recently and last week I noticed some small bumps on my penis shaft. The bumps are painless, but very itching and annoying. I searched and found it could be genital warts. If they are warts, will I have them forever? What can I do to get rid of these horrible growths? Please, help me.

    It could be something really not worrying.  Go and see your GP and let them have a look before you start worrying unnecessarily.  Also if it is a new girlfriend I would suggest using protection until you get to know each others history and also for both protection against STI and pregnancy.

      Thank you. I just sent a picture and asked a doctor online. After seeing that picture and asking some questions about my sexual history, he said that these bumps could be genital warts. He advised me to see a doctor to get them treated immediately. I searched online and found that the treatment may cost lots of money and I can't afford it. Some sufferers said that the warts can go away on their own within 1-2 years. Also, some reported that they got positive results after using home remedies and anti-viral creams. I'm considering trying these, but I think I will ask a doctor first.

    As I know, genital warts are caused by the Human papillomavirus (HPV). If you contract HPV, you will have it for life. Despite treatment, the warts may come, go and return without noticing. A strong immune system can help in fighting off the virus naturally. To do this, you have to have healthy lifestyles, practice safe sex, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. And don't have sex while having genital warts because the virus can spread to your partner.
