Dating with HPV and Other STDs

A worrying aspect of sexual health in recent years is genital warts, which can grow in, and around male and female sex organs. These can form into ugly groups that can even affect the anal area. They are the result of one of the forms of human papilloma virus or abbreviated to HPV that are transmitted sexually, even orally and are actually a virus.

This is one particular instance where using a condom will not always prevent the genital warts; women can be infected and be unaware of the situation for a long time making them easy to transmit to others.

Just to compound the problem, there is no reason why once a person is infected, they do not have to show signs straight away and the virus may not activate for months, even longer. The person who contracts them however, becomes a silent carrier and that is how this disease is spreading rampantly in today’s world.

To date, more than 100 human papilloma virus viruses have been discovered but the one that causes anogenital warts is called human papilloma virus 6 (HPV6). Although outer warts can be easily seen, women who develop them inside their genitalia may not see these HPV warts until a doctor examines the site.

Women may display some additional discharge as genital HPV warts may cause the area around them to be moister than other areas and it is this condition, which promotes their growth. For HPV warts removal, one of the popular methods of wart removal is to apply liquid nitrogen to the infected area. This liquid nitrogen has a very low temperature and will kill the infected skin and tissues. You need to see a doctor to carry this out because liquid nitrogen is not generally available to the public, and the process is not a very painful procedure, and whether liquid nitrogen is used depends upon the location of the infected area.

Lasers could be used to remove warts but often a doctor will prefer to use electrocautery. Sometimes, a minor surgical procedure cannot be rules out. Eradicating them is not completely guaranteed as they can return after treatment. The methods available to remove them are still reliant on the area where they are located. Imiquimod liquid is used topically to treat genital warts (and anal) since it helps the body’s immune system to fight the virus and to get rid of them. However, it does not kill the HPV virus. New HPV infections can still appear while Imiquimod is being administered.

Although Imiquimod cannot always be used, and in particular it is not to be administered when a woman is pregnant. However, it also has restrictions on its use inside the vagina and on the genitals or when the skin around the area is inflamed. Like all medications, Imiquimod has side effects and if these are experienced it should be stopped at once. This should be discussed with your doctor prior to its use. HPV is such a serious subject, the information on genital warts provided here should not be viewed as complete or in-depth; further facts and advice may be needed from your medical practitioner.
