Dating with genital wart
The taboo is bigger than the severity of this condition.
I mean, my doctor and I had to use a magnifying glass/mirror to see them! The worst is the stigma and the psychological distress because of it.
In most jurisdictions, it's illegal not to a tell sexual partner. Do you have any real proof of HPV other than visual diagnosis? Make no mistake about it, there is a test for males.
I mean, if you truly have it, you could literally murder a woman with it. Long story short, yes, if you have HPV, you absolutely must tell everyone you (almost) sleep with. It's just too expensive and complicated for a layperson to receive it.
But I still disclose to potential partners that I had this in the past.I mean, my doctor and I had to use a magnifying glass/mirror to see them! The worst is the stigma and the psychological distress because of it. I showed some really tiny warts (1-2 mm), and had them removed.Explain to her and tell her that it's okay if she decides to not continue. You never know, it's so common that she may have had this in the past too! If you see that things are definitely getting romantic let her know. A new one would grow once in a while in a span of about a year.Because not everyone shows symptoms at the same time frame. I personally was prepared that the men I confessed would back off, but it didn't happen. I'm a heterosexual male and just confirmed a single genital wart on my pubic bone.So, I went to a doctor just to check my paranoia, and he tells me it is indeed a genital wart! But I don't know if a partner could, and this couldn't have happened at a worse time as I think I finally met someone who is interested in an LTR with me. Go back to your doctor and let him explain to you what is involved here. About 95% of women will get infected with it at some point in their life without even knowing it.
