Hello,

I have been diagnosed with HPV.   I got diagnosed in 2000 when I went in for a preg test.   My physican asked me if I felt my husband was cheating on me, I was just shocked.   I told him no and then he explained why.   I had a vaginal wart and my pap smear was abnormal.   I had developed HPV.   I had been with my husband for 7 years at that point.   He did tell me that he had contracted some disease when he was in the service back in 92 and he did have warts around his penis.    He also told me that the navy doctor told him after taking his antibiotics that he was cleared.    We have had our share of problems through the years but he swears he did not sleep behind my back..... In my lifetime I have only had 3 sexual partners from 3 relationships (including my marriage) and I had never had any female problems until I started sleeping with my husband (boyfriend at the time).     How long does it take to show up as vaginal warts?   Also I know that every time we french kiss I get cold sores in my mouth.   What could that be???

HPV has an unknown incubation period. The period can vary from person to person. Some people show signs  and symptoms of infection after only a month of exposure. Others take years or decades. Some never show any signs at all, despite being infected. Without further testing, it is impossible to say when you were first infected. There is also a strong possibility that further testing may not be very conclusive either.

In most cases, the infection passes without too many complications. It is, however, very strongly associated with cervical cancer, so following up with your doctor is a must.

Regarding the cold sores when kissing, those are the result of herpes infection (most likely HSV-1). They are generally trasmitted via kissing or other oral/oral contact. You can get tested to see who has the infection (most likely both of you), and if kissing predisposes you to outbreaks, you can lessen the frequency of them by kissing less, or not as deeply. You can also get medication from your doctor to treat (not cure) the infection and hopefully reduce the frequency of outbreaks.

Hi TexasWife.

I think you may be talking about two different things 1. HPV and 2. Herpes.
Both are viruses and can be transmitted via sexual contact.

After having sexual contact with someone with HPV, you could develop warts weeks to months later or not at all.  Sometimes HPV causes NO symptoms in men, so he could have it, not know about it and spread it.  Since HPV can remain in your body for many years, there is no way of knowing if your partner gave you HPV or if you gave it to your partner.  Even people with one sexual partner can have it and monogamous partners often share the virus. 

Antibiotics are not used for HPV, so I‘m guessing that the lesions your husband had on his penis were due to another sexually transmitted infection if it was cleared with antibiotics.  There is no cure for HPV, but sometimes the infection clears on its own.  The treatment focuses on getting rid of the warts and watching for any precancerous lesions on the cervix. 

If you are getting cold sores in or around your mouth, that could be the herpes virus (HSV-1).  There are medications which can decrease the frequency or duration of outbreaks of herpes.  If you suspect this is what you have, talk to your doctor about your options.

Here is some more information on both HPV and Herpes:

Herpes:

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks DWS, complement much appreciated.

Though it doesn‘t quite compare to your always very clear, logically laid out, and super well-referenced posts. If I wore a hat, I‘d tip it to you! hehe.

This was a post I made on the "woman‘s health and sex issues" board in the thread "does someone know this".

 

I think though it would help if I made this statement here.

I dont have any stds or sexually transmitted diseases, but I have a couple friends who have believed for many years that they have a type of HPV that causes genital warts, and also have herpes. Now its never been clear to me if they know this for sure. They are a couple, he says he breaks out once in a while with the warts and that he doesnt have herpes outbreaks. She on the other hand, had her warts taken care of when she first had them and once the treatments were done they said she was clear of the actual warts but that she would likely be just a carrier of HPV, but she does believe that she has reoccuring herpes outbreaks.

His family doctor apparantly specializes in STDs and made some statements to him that I found to be wonderfully soothing advice for anyone dealing with these issues. So I shall pass this on.

Doctor says to him, "would you be embarrased to have a cold sore(herpes) on your lip? It‘s very common to have it on your mouth, and either way, wouldnt you rather have it in a hidden place, a place where only you and your partner have to see it and only those you choose to tell about it know about it? Same thing with the warts, people get them all the time on their feet and hands and have to deal with other people seeing it. Both are essentially the same thing many people deal with in more visible ares, why get all worked up about it being in a more private area"

Its so stereotypical of the average person to be grossed out by these type of diseases when they are on the genitals, yet its everywhere. Some people have outbreaks of both HPV genital warts and Herpes and others dont. Some people are able to overcome the HPV virus without ever knowing they have it. Men...will never know they are carriers unless its one of the types to cause warts, and woman can have any type of HPV lie dormant for years before tests discover it. HPV is becoming a norm, sad, but true. Herpes is everywhere and many people walk around with it on their lips where everyone can see, and although many people dont get it on their genitals, there are those unfortunate ones who do get it from either an infected partner or from a partner who goes down on them and carries the virus on their mouth. What does a person do? Deal with it with the best attitude you can have about it.

Both of theses viruss are transmittable even when using a condom and neither have guaranteed cures. We really need to stop feeding the stereotypes out there and start understanding that no matter who we sleep with or what their sexual behaviours are....any one of us can get either of these diseases at any time no matter what precautions we take. We could be carriers and not even know even though we have been tested in the past. We can be with the same partner for many years, and not know that HPV has been lying dormant for years and all of a sudden comes out of no where....how would we feel if our partner rejected us, criticized us and shunned us for that.

Think about it....this is not HIV...its HPV and Herpes. Some HPV can be cancer causing once active, however, as long as us woman take the precautionary measures necessary to deal with cellular changes, there are medications out there to help with cellular changes before it turns into cancer. Herpes is merely a pain in the ass and an eyesore...but its not going to kill anyone.

 

Now if any of the information Ive passed on here is inaccurate or just completely wrong, please feel free to correct me. Im going based on my understanding, what has been told to me by that couple and what I have researched.  But I hope that people are able to look at these diseases with less disgust in the people that have them. Not all infected persons get it because they sleep with trash!

 

NOTE: remember I did originally write the above in response to another post, so some of my statements are not applicable to your original post. My point is simply just to get the message across that you need not be disgusted and you need not really worry....they‘re both just diseases that society has to learn to stop being disgusted by.
