Genital Warts experiences

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi everyone, I was recently diagnosed with genital warts about 6 weeks ago. I had three sessions of cryotherapy and then was prescribed Aldara cream to use. The warts are almost gone now.

I just wondered if any of you had past experiences with this type of HPV and were able to offer some positive hope? I was told my both mt sexual health nurses that if no warts return within a certain amount of time then it probably means the virus has been cleared from the body; so I'm keeping an eye out to see if they return after treatment! I was also told that there would be no need to inform future partners (im currently single) about the diagnosis because the virus is so common that the chances are they have already been in contact with it. I guess what I'd just really like to know is if any of you have positive success stories from warts and if they ever returned? I felt really depressed about the diagnosis and just want to know when my body will be normal again and if theres anyone else in the same boat.

Thank you

    hey, first of all sorry for my english its not my first language. i have genital warts too, i was diagnosed with it in February. my doctor said to me, that i dont have to tell my future partner about it, because basically its not dangerous, and ill not infect anybody with the virus if i get rid of these warts. but when you will be "healthy", when you wont have warts they can come back when you will have weakened immunity. so its good to take some vitamins, lots of fruit and vegetable, smoothies etc. normal person with good imunity can get rid of the HPV in 2 yesrs. for example my colleague had 3 warts 7 years ago and she is clean since that. its all about immunity. try to think positive, do some sport, read books, watch series, but dont think about it.

      HI! thanks for replying! Do you still have the warts now and what treatment were you given? Also, did your colleague ever spread them to anybody else? I was really worried at first but i feel much more positive now. I just want these to go forever and never come back.

    i would recommend you to go to see an immunologist. he did some test from my blood and he found out that i have really bad immunity and gave me pills called ISOPRINOSINE and it really helped me. i had about 50 warts!!!! and now after 2 week of taking these pills and because of cryotherapy i have maybe 10-20 warts.

    I had gential warts two years ago. A year later the HPv did not show up when i got my pap smear. It has been 2 years and i havent had any warts since the first time i got them. My doctor told me that most people only have one outbreak. Hope this helps.
