Vaginal warts

Posted by QT on February 22, 1999 at 18:29:51:

I was told by a doctor a year ago that I have vaginal warts. I have never had unprotected sex. How could I get this? Is there anyway to get rid of them? Are there any risks? I've heard there are. I don't go to him anymore. He didn't talk to me at all, except to say there's nothing I can do and otherwise I'm fine, and to come back in 6 months for another pap. I had another pap with another doctor, who said nothing about abnormal results. However, I do notice little pimple-like bumps around the external vaginal area. Could you tell me anything you know about this? This is a nice bulletin board, you offer great advice. Thank you for your time. QT

Dear QT,

You are well rid of the first doc. ALL research tells us that vaginal warts are a cancer risk and there are MANY ways to get rid of them even conventionally. He just didn't want to be bothered.

I noticed that your new doc, who did the pap, didn't mention the warts. Were they gone?

These warts are,like ALL warts, caused by a virus. Improving your immune system significantly is the best way to get rid of them & prevent a recurrence.

Thanks Dr. I still wonder how I got them if I never had unprotected sex. That first dr. who diagnosed me with them said that it was only transmitted sexually, but then another one said you could get them in a hot tub or something. I had heard about the cancer risk--that's what scares me the most. If I start SR, will that be adequate treatment? Thank you!

I now have a pimple-like sore on the outside of my labia. It looks like the whitehead you get if you get an ingrown hair. It is somewhat painful--do you think this is a wart or an ingrown hair or some other type of sore?

Dear QT,

YOu can get them from a toilet seat even. Much of the susceptibility is related to the level of wellness of the individual.

Alkthough SR MIGHT be enough to resolve them, I wouldn't begin to suggest that since I would have to know a LOT more about you to even have an idea of your % chances with that alone. That is why I mentioned "wellness". To be sure that you will get rid of them (while preventing new ones) you would have to do all three legs of the wellness stool: regular exercise, whole foods diet (and thoughtful supplementary program) and regular SR.

THEN, you should be examined 6-12 months after you have those 3 going and they should be gone.

It is poessible that they are well enough established that they will need to be cauterized to get rid of this batch once you have your wellness in place. Without the wellness, they are likely to recur even if you DO have them cauterized.

Let us know how you do.

Walt
