I found out I had HPV after a PAP. They told me I could go to a special place to get a treatment. My doctor also told me that I could get it cut out (did that mean it would be gone for good?) or not. she also said i was to come in every 4 months for the first year, every 6 months for the second, then back to my normal once a year after that. It cost i think about $500, but they said I could get a LEEP or something else. I dont remember what it was I had done tho. I cant remember what a LEEP is? and if thats what I had done.. I thoughttt that she had just cut a peice off to have it tested, and she later called me and said results came back and that its lookin good for me. I got off the phone with her, but never did ask what that was supposed to mean. But I never ended up going back in for my paps...not ONE. and its almost been a year :( my mom said not to worry about it cause she cut it completely out and i shouldnt have it anymore. but is that possible, i thought there was no cure or anything they could do for hpv? and also can it really clear up after two years? what if i dont know how long ive had it, cause i didnt know how long i had it before finding out about it.
I have been with the same guy I was with when I found out I had it now for about a year and a half. (all this happened around january 2009) I didnt know if this meant he had it or not too, so we did some research and an article said that guys cannot go to the doctor and get it treated. (yes we were sexually active)
and since i thought i didnt have it anymore (after what my mom said) we thought we would be okay to be sexually active again. he doesnt seem to be having any signs of anything so i thought everything was ok.
then i started getting a strange odor, not fishy, not TERRIBLE, just different, and i didnt like it at all. i also started thinking other people could smell it and it made me nervous.
and now i have little bumps, the size of razor bumps, dont itch dont burn dont anything, dont look like warts, then they just go away after a couple days. my mom says not to worry, its normal to have maybe like a pimple down there or something, but it doesnt look like that either, it doesnt hurt, theres no white head or anything. she also said im just making myself more worried and im just noticing the littlest things. .
im sorry for ranting on so much, but i have no one to talk to about this stuff, and REALLY cannot afford a doctor. im pretty scared and just wanna know whats going on, if i have it still or not, if i got rid of it? then got it again because we became sexually active again and he had it? can he get rid of it if he has it? idk what to do? can someone please help me?
