HPV Support Group

Human papillomavirus is a diverse group of DNA-based viruses that infect the skin and mucous membranes of humans. More than 100 different human papillomavirus (HPV) types have been characterized. Some HPV types cause benign skin warts, or papillomas, for which the virus family is named. HPVs associated with the development of such "common warts" are transmitted environmentally or by casual skin-to-skin contact.

    Can Gardasil cause genital warts?

    3
    Last March, I got my first of 3 shots of Gardasil. During end of the month, my vagina and anus started itching, and I also noticed a small growth which I suspected to be just a skin tag or a keloid from all that scratching. When I went back to my ob for the 2nd shot, I complained about the itching and upon inspection, I was diagnosed with genital warts. My doctor said it could not possibly be the...

I am 28 years old and I just feel like no man would ever want to touch me or explore a relationship as I am damaged goods. Since I...

    Hi guys, I was recently diagnosed with HPV... Right after the call I texted the two partners that I had within the past 6 months. I asked both to get tested because there are two circumstances in which Hpv could have been transmitted. #1 The 1st guy could have given it to me & Ignorant as I could have been I may have passed it along to my new sexual partner. #2 my new sexual partner could have...

    HPV and passing it to a new partner

    7
    I was diagnosed with HPV roughly 8 years ago (the kind that causes GW). Since that time, they have cleared after the very first episode and have not reoccured. I am divorced now, and seeing a new partner. What's the chances of him contracting it since it's been so long and with no new symptoms or outbreaks??

    I found out I had GW not too long ago (btw I'm a 21yr old female), and when I first discovered it, I freaked out!! But, I have done a lot of research since then and I just came back from my first appointment with my gyno, and I just want all of you that are worried, scared, confused, sad, angry, etc... to know that it is not as bad as you think it is! My GWs are clearing up on their own....

Ive had no bumps or warts neither has my partner ( together for over a yr) so I'm...

I had a bump that was an ingrown hair and I even saw a hair come from it. it turned into a smaller bump and never went away. my doctor said he can't be for sure unless they do a biopsy of it but he's pretty...

    Just Diagnosed and Feeling Scared and Alone

    I got a call from my doctor on Monday to say that I have HPV. I understood very little about it and didn't know what to ask. I formulated a list of questions to email my doctor the next day and the only thing she responded with to say was to just wear a condom and that she'd be out of the office for the next week and there would be no way to reach her. I tried talking to my boyfriend who...
