How at risk am I of developing genital warts?

by Rachel on August 4, 2011

My girlfriend was infected with HPV. We have been sexually active for about 4 months. She didn’t know she was infected unitl about 3 weeks after we were having sex. She got a cream and the bumps went away. She recently had genital warts re-appear and are actually worse. She says guys hardly ever develop warts. I am worried, is what she says true? How at risk am I? I haven’t touched her since the warts re-appeared.

Guys can carry HPV to a girl, infect her, and the guy won’t even have it! They are called carriers. But guys can also get HPV, how else do you think some girls get it?
But very little people actually have an outbreak. You can have HPV forever and not have an outbreak.
And yes, girls are far more at risk for HPV, and outbreaks. But guys do suffer outbreaks too.
Go to your dr and see what they say. I know there are meds girls can take, and I’m sure there are meds guys can take as well.
It’s not that big of a deal really. It’s like a common cold. You’re body gets immune to it.

Outbreaks can be caused by anything. Watch what you eat, and don’t smoke.
