Hi there. Much to my sadness, I was diagnosed with HPV back in April 2006. Apparently it was on the low side of the scale. Not high risk. She said that's good as we've caught it early. They did a coloscopy (forgive my spelling, not sure if that's right) in May 2006, and turns out things were ok. No signs of cancer and no signs of warts. I went back again in October of 2006 for a followup. Turns out things weren't any better, but it hadn't change. Didn't get any worse. Still no warts. I go back again in March of this year for another followup.
My question is about the genital warts. If nothing has popped up now, is it safe to say it never will? That I don't have a strain of HPV that causes genital warts? Is there a chance I could still have the warts come up?
Second part of my question has to do with sexual partner. If I were to have had sex with someone, and I didn't show signs of the warts ever, could he still possibly get them? If he got HPV, would it be the same strain as I do? Am I making sense?
I've been really curious about this, and am glad to have found this forum. Thanks for listening no matter how silly my questions may get. EDIT:
I don't know if it makes much difference, but I posted wrong. HPV was detected via a pap in April 2006. May was when I had the coloscopy.
