I must be cursed...

About 3 weeks ago, I noticed maybe +-10 very small pimples in my genital area. I tried to squeeze them out, it didn’t work, they did not go away after this. So this morning I went to the doctor to take an STD test and it seems that I have HPV (not HIV ok, HPV). In other words, I have the virus that causes genital warts (ooh, that sounds much worst than it really is).

How unlucky do I have to be I first thought! I’ve only had sex with 7 girls in my whole life, and I’ve always been pretty steady with my sex partners. Well, having HPV is not that uncommon : 50% of sexually active adults have the virus. The part where I am unlucky, is that only 1% of the men who have HPV develop symptoms.

That’s even worst luck than losing my money on the Broncos upsetting the Pats last weekend!

Lol. No, really, it ain’t so bad. The symptoms are nothing but those small warts that are barely noticeable, that don’t cause any pain or itching and that are not contagious (HPV virus itself is highly contagious, but as I wrote, most people who have HPV don’t get any symptoms). So, I don’t have to change my sex life in any ways.

The only thing is that, for aesthetic reasons, I have to get those warts frozen off with liquid nitrogen when they appear. And so that’s what I did this morning. It was quite a funny scene. The doctor I saw was a very nice lady and she had good conversation. So she went to get a little bit of liquid nitrogen in a foam cup. She came back and told me: «You have to help me because the nitrogen is going to evaporate pretty fast. So I’m going to start burning the warts that are on your right side, you hold the cup with one hand, and with the other hand, you pick one of those big Q-tips and you’ll freeze off some warts on the left side.» There were about 15 of those tiny warts to do so it took us a few minutes. This could easily be made into a scene in some kind of disgusting comedy: a doctor and a patient casually chatting while freezing off warts off his dick and balls!
lol

So really, it is not so bad at all. Breakouts are unpredictable, so I can be free of this for weeks, months or years, depending if my luck gets better or not! I might even never breakout again.

Ooh!…to all those who think that there’s nothing like a good cup of coffee to wake you up in the morning, try putting liquid nitrogen on you balls! That would wake up a dead man!

Just some info about HPV or everyone out there.

There is now a vaccine for HPV. Ask you doctor and get it. The reason I say get it is because the virus can be very detrimental to women. In some cases it may cause cancer of the cervix in women and eventually they will have to have an early hysterectomy.

There is no protection other that the vaccine for HPV. The HPV virus is small enough to travel freely through a condom. So a condom is no protection or prevention of this virus.

Men, keep in mind powpow is right this virus doesn’t really affect men so don’t freak out. It is really the women that get the shit end of this virus.

Cool, you posted just about what I was going to say, except I was going to use some really cool adjectives! :leftie:

One thing to note: Tons of sexually active people have it. I’ll bet most don’t know they do.


Gut Scramblin' goodness.

Thanks for the advice guys, I will be looking into this vaccine.


19th Feb 2012

Erect: 7.625" BPEL and 4.875" EG BPFSL: 8.063 Short Term Goal: 7.75" x 5 Long Term Goal: BP 8.5 x EG 5.75

From what I’ve read the virus that causes HPV and cervical cancer now has the potential to be 100% eradicated.
Research is also starting to suggest that most forms of penile cancer are also caused by HPV infection.

I don’t know how willing I am to believe this just yet, but your chances of being completely disinfected are much better now.

The vaccine is a series of 3 booster shots for three different strains of the virus.
The vaccines are suppose to be able to cure current infections. I’ve also heard it claimed that the vaccines can cure cervical cancer in women. This is a major breakthrough in cancer research. If it is true then this makes it the only known form of cancer that can be cured with 100% certainty via the use if an injection or medicine / vaccine
New cremes made from the vaccines are suppose to be able to very effectively rid you of current outbreaks of warts and the nodules that you described.

The Bad:
Most doctors are largely uninformed about the ability of the vaccines and who should get them.
Politics is in play here too. The Bush administration is on record, as well as the christian religious fundamentalist, as claiming that curing HPV and / or giving the vaccines to young people (exactly where it’s most needed) will cause people to return to an era of heightened sexual promiscuity. There by increasing the rate of AIDS infections due to a false sense of security.

So, the Bush administration is trying to limit it’s current availability. The CDC wanted the vaccines included in the mandatory immunization that U.S. children go through before being allowed to attend grade school. Again the current administration prevented it from happening, citing the above mentioned reasoning.

I don’t have links for all of this. Most of it has been from talk / radio shows and speaking with my wife’s gyno doctor.
Google should bring up some results though.

Now, liquid nitrogen? Go get some of that new creme and a new more progressive doctor.
A burnt weenie and some scar tissue is what you stand to loose.

Can you point me to where you found this information? I have heard and read just the opposite. If this is true it be great news for many women. I’d really like to read where this is claimed.

I’ll have to verify that info. That could be interesting…

Yeah, the doctor told me about these but she said that they are very expensive and that the results are not as good as with the good old liquid nitrogen

I don’t even worry about that. I’ve had warts treated with liquid nitrogen in the past (on my hands) and it really was no big deal. It looks nasty for 1-2 days then the skin falls off.

The vaccine is manufactured by Merck and its called, Gardasil. You can look over the prescribing info on the website at www.gardasil.com

The vaccine is to prevent infection from several strains of HPV, two that cause 70% of cervical cancers in women and two that cause most genital warts. The vaccine, like all vaccines is meant to protect people who are not infected with these strains of HPV. The vaccine does not “cure” infection that already exists in a patient. The regulatory agencies that set vaccine policy for the US recommend that this vaccine be given to pre-adolescent girls who have not had sex. The intent is to protect them from infection from the strains in the vaccine.

The cost of each dose is in the $120 to $130 range and the vaccine is a 3 dose series. For men HPV is mostly asymptomatic but what gynecological oncologists look for in women is what is referred to as a persistant infection that can lead to cervical cancer. This is what happens to a smaller number of ladies. From what I have read, about 4,000 women per year die in the US from cervical cancer and a good number of those started with those key strains of HPV.

That is what I have always thought to be true of vaccines. I think Rootcamp is misinformed. I would still like to see where Rootcamp got his “Cure” information from.

You can buy an over-the-counter product called Wartner to freeze off warts yourself, but I don’t think I could do it myself on Mr. Willy.

The MD I saw told me that some products are available in drugstores but that liquid nitrogen is the best thing. As I mentioned, I did part of the freeze off job myself and it’s really not that bad. The only thing is that it’s been three days now and my dick looks fucking nasty. Instead of the tiny, barely noticeable warts, I now have big purple-red spots that are about 1/4” diameter each. Hope this will go away soon, at least before next week because I’m supposed to meet this “good friend” of mine and I kind of doubt she’s going to be willing to do anything if my dick still looks the way it does now.

Are you going to tell her about the warts or just infect her with it?


I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work. Thomas Edison (1847-1931)

What the MD told me is that the warts are not contagious. The virus is, but the thing is, as I mentioned at the beginning of the thread, the warts are just a reaction to the virus that about 1% of the people who get HPV develop. Doc also told me that 75% of the population gets HPV at one moment or another of their life. Some people naturally get rid of the asymptomatic infection and most people just don’t know they have it because they never get any symptoms.

As far as infecting her with HPV, the fact of the matter is that she is probably the one who gave it to me. Since I have not had sex with another girl than her since last February, the odds that I had HPV before I met her are slim. It means that she is probably part of the 99% of the people who have HPV and don’t get any symptoms.

Anyways, I think it is wise to double check and I’m going to go to the clinic again at the beginning of next week.

Well either way powpow you should mention it to here that she might have given it to you because she might have cervical cancer and not even know it, and she can die from that. It is just being a responsible sexual partner.

After doing a little bit of reading, I find myself a lot more confused than I was before and realize this might be a bigger deal than I thought it was. Going back to the clinic first thing Monday morning. Sound shittier than it initially did…
