i have been diagnosed with med/high risk hpv for 9 months. i will go for my next hpv test in jan. i have been taking 2 multivitamins, and various other vitamins daily(garlic, folic acid, lysine, vitamin C, daily). i am really trying to stay healthy to help my body fight this off. i have had this disease for at least 2 years...as i have not had sexual relations with anyone since oct 2007, so if that is when i got this, it has been in my system that long. in the last year, i have noticed some spots, down there, and am hoping that they are not GW. i also am prone, and have skin tags in the genital area. is there a way that i can test for them at home, without going to the doctors. I was under the impression, i could not get GW with Med to high risk. I am dreading go to the docters. stress is the one thing i cant help in my life. Please help me?

If you have new symptoms that are worrying you, you need to go and be seen and get properly examined. If they aren't sure if these are skin tags or hpv, they can cut one off and send it to the lab to find out ( not nearly as painful as it sounds! ). You can have more than 1 type of hpv in your body at a time :(
