Life After Genital Warts
After contracting a genital warts in collage, I struggled with humility and pain. Now I’ve finally conquered the embarrassment I put myself through. I’m free, and have found purpose, and that is helping others that are going through the same. My name is Alex, and I’m very happy to meet you!
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is one of the most common infections in the world. Commonly known as the wart virus, HPV affects a vast amount of people the world over. There are more than 100 known strains of the warts virus and hence, warts. Many people may carry the virus for long periods of time without knowing that they are infected – something that can be confirmed with medical testing. Genital warts may be so small they are undetectable from the human eye, or can multiply rapidly into larger clusters. They can have the appearance of small flat bumps, or cauliflower-like growths. Genital warts in certain cases can be somewhat benign, however in others they may pose a serious health risk to both males and females. In women genital warts, vaginal warts, have been associated with cervical cancer, as well as other cancers. Whilst in males genital warts can also lead to cancer. Genital warts are contagious. Skin to skin contact and of course any sexual contact should be avoided until the condition is eliminated or you may pass the the virus on and risk infecting others as well. It is extremely important that you pursue a genital wart treatment to both remove genital warts and inactivate HPV as soon as you are aware of their presence.
