HPV, looking for comfort

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi there!

I'm a girl, I'm 23 and seems like I have HPV since I have genital warts on my labia minora.

I'm in my first relationship right now and it's long distance with the most wonderful BF ever. We were both virgins before having sex with each other. Before coming to him and having sex for the first time, I decided to get a Brazilian wax to look and feel nice down there. Seems like it was my worst mistake.

Before going to visit him last month, I decided for some reason check it down there and found those warts. Have no idea for long they've been there and if I had it before. The next day I went to my Gyn, she checked me down there and said those were HPV. I was devastated. She referred me to take HPV tests, both high- and low (6,11). They came back negative.

After my trip to my BF I decided to take tests again but not from inside my vagina, but from the place where those warts are. Negative again. But my Gyn still thinks it's HPV.

I'm devastated, I just started to be sexually active and this s**t happened. Maybe you could give me some peace with it, I honestly don't know what to do, it feels like my normal sexual life is over when it just began 😭

    My personal opinion is that you DO NOT have warts! i think that it is just VP, as i said i got mine with a yeast infection. i can send you a picture of mine in a bit. i mean especially if you tested neg for 6, 11 which is 90% of genital wart cases. I think you are fine and you may need to see a different doctor. 😃

      Thank you so much! ✨ I really hope you're right. I'm a very anxious person, so this stuff is quite difficult for me to deal with. I'm planning to see 2 other doctors this month to see what they think.

      I would like to receive a picture from you, just to compare

      I will send you one within the next hour! 😃 I have been checked and told i am fine even though i am still worrying as well. and i missed my period last month, i am on BC and have not missed a period in 2 1/2 years so i am worried. but i am stressed out so i am hoping it is that.

      Sounds familiar. We all should just chill and enjoy our lives, especially you, because if a Gyn told me it's nothing I wouldn't bother 😃 And, yeah, we should stop stressing out, cause missed periods is a sign of freaking out much (oh, it sounds so familiar xD)
