Im hoping someone can help answer my questions. I was diagnosed with genital warts December just gone (2019) right before Christmas. I was optimistic at first but it's really turning me upside down and upsetting me now. I dont feel I can talk to anyone about it hence my coming here. I had met an awesome guy a few months prior to diagnosis and things were going extremely well. Of course I told him I had found some bumps (they were on my anal area) and I didnt know they were. After getting checked at the doctor I was absolutely devastated to be told they were warts and I strongly suspect from a guy I had previously been seeing though I understand it's actually impossible to know. He said at the time he was ok with it and we would get through it, chances were he hadn't come into contact as we had not had anal and that is the only place they have appeared, but unfortunately things definitely changed between us and we called it a day on valentine's day. I had the external warts frozen and they responded really well, vanished within days, however I had to see a consultant to check me internally and you guessed it I have a few just inside my anus as well. The consultant has been insisting on treating these with iquimod (aldara) cream which I am finding difficult to do, both application and the thought that it might not work - I've been using iquimod for 6 weeks now and the lumps are still there. I am thinking about asking for them to be frozen as well now as I'm loosing patience. Has anyone had experience of internal warts being treated? Has anyone also had any experience of just having genital warts on your anus? Did they ever spread? I've been examined several times with a speculum vaginally now and nothing can be seen there so I pray the outbreak is isolated to my anal area. I have a procedure next week to cauterise my ectropian cervix (a separate issue I was having before this wart issue) so they will be able to see more clearly and of course I will tell them about the possible changes/ outbreak. I am trying to eat a good diet, I dont smoke and exercise already and have started taking B, E and Iron vitamins - is there anything else I can do to try an beat this?... I know everyone is different but what can I expect in the future - will there definitely be breakouts? Is there anything else I can do to help myself? I will be asking my GP for a referral to pay for and have the HPV vaccine just in case. I'm finding it very hard to not feel isolated and like I will never find someone that can love me like this, and I want a family some day, I'm 30 now. I feel like I've ruined my life and as if I have a very dark few years ahead of me. I know there is more to life but I'm ready to find someone and this is going to ruin that. I will try and focus on other things instead I suppose.

I was relieved when the dermatologist said it wasn’t cancerous. Still felt like the world was coming down around me. I’m getting past the initial shock and things are calming down. It took away my peace of mind and I’m so happy to you all for being here for me to talk to about this and get some insight. Thanks for sharing with me.
