HPV/Genital Warts Support Thread
After looking at many pictures on the internet, I have come to the conclusion that I have HPV (more commonly known as genital warts). I think I have had them for about a year now, and they seem to keep on spreading. It’s very depressing to write this because I know that I have to be responsible about this by not having sex with anyone…and coming from a college student, this is very hard to do. So once again, I am turning to you guys for support and advice. Here’s what I have gathered so far:
1. Genital Warts is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the U.S.
2. You should not PE (jelq) if you have HPV because it will spread the virus.
Other than that, I am clueless.
I’m thinking about going to the doctor soon, the only problem is that she is a close family friend and my insurance is under my parent’s name. The embarrassment of telling my parents would be too much to handle. Don’t get me wrong, they are very supportive…I just don’t want to get them involved. So I’m asking anyone out there who has some light to shed on the subject to help me out of this tight fix. I did a lot of searching at products that cure HPV but got lost in all the 100% guarantees and herbal remedies. Have any of you guys tried these products, and if so, which ones work and which ones don’t? I’ve heard that Aldara is very beneficial, but it requires a prescription (i.e. a trip to the doctor). This is some really depressing shit. I don’t even think I can masturbate because of the risk that the virus will spread. What did you guys do to get through this crap?
