I've got what looks like skin tags but its getting worse. It's on my labia, my anus, and now the outside of my vagina... Sound familiar? Help!

Is it possible you have genital warts?

Firsttimebabygirl Tue 19-Feb-13 22:58:17

Well I wouldn't have thought so, I've been with the same partner for years and its only happened over the last month.

Ok, I don't know you or your circumstances, Ill leave you to it.

I think you need to get checked out. You may have been faithful, but has your partner?

Thank you I will, as much as i didnt want to think it, the thought had crossed my mind.

I don't think it means he has been unfaithful. You can have the hpv virus without knowing, and presumably sometimes it flares up into warts.

God, now I am freaking out. What if it us an STI. Not only will I have lost my partner due to him being unfaithful but I could be stuck with this for the rest of my life! I feel so tainted and dirty.

Oh ok thank you starfishmummy... I can tell I won't sleep tonight.

Genital warts can lay dormant for years, it may have been contracted a long time ago and triggered by lowered immunity, a flare up can be triggered in pregnancy or illness. However there is dispute about weather the HPV virus remains in our body or disappears.

I would certainly get checked out but remember it does not mean anyone has been unfaithful.

HPV I should say can lay dormant not genital warts as HPV is the virus that causes warts.

I'm sorry, I feel bad for being the first to suggest this and also I wish I'd been a bit kinder in my response sad
