I'm new to this message board, and new to HPV. I'm 19 years old, and I was diagnosed with HPV about 3 months ago. This was the last "std" I thought I would get. I was so worried about all the other more serious conditions (herpes...aids...etc..) I've gone to the doctor several times and have had a colposcopy done (on Feb. 7), and he said that everything looked fine, and that there was a 90% chance of it clearing up on it's own. I was relieved until just YESTERDAY I noticed some swelled up places down there but it's not in a common place for genital warts. I looked up pictures on google, and I think I've scared myself to death. I've been crying since I've noticed them, I'm afraid of not being able to have the life I've dreamed. With kids, and a marraige. I go to the doctor today to get it looked at. Is there hope?
