Genital Warts. need help!
I have noticed genital warts(skin coloured white headed in shape of cauliflower size of a pea) in my vagina and anal part from last 4 months. my partner tried to have sexual intercourse but we did not do it. i visited the doctor she said these are not because of HPV (then whats the reason behind??) also she adviced to take vaccine which i have taking (1st dose, next to follow). what exactly should i be doing to to cure them? are they common and how long will it take to cure them? what will be useful in curing these? Going through a very tough time! please advice.

Hi..., If your warts aren't causing discomfort, you may not need treatment. But if your symptoms include itching, burning and pain, or if visible warts are causing emotional distress, your doctor can help you clear an outbreak with medications or surgery. However, the lesions are likely to come back after treatment.... Using a condom every time you have sex can significantly reduce your risk of contracting genital warts. .. A vaccine known as Gardasil protects against the strains of HPV that cause most genital warts. Gardasil also protects against the HPV strains most likely to cause cervical cancer. ..
