How long after sex with an infected partner would genital warts take to appear?

by Rachel on August 19, 2011

I had unprotected sex with a girl last thursday, so 13 days ago and now have small red bumps on the bottom of my glans and on the top of my shaft and well of couse I’m freaking out. They are tiny, like pimple size, and cover maybe 50% of the area.. Should I be worried they are genital warts? Or something else like balanitis.. They’re really itchy and that’s about it. Thanks

Genital warts are cauliflower shaped lesions and have no physical sensation. You are suffering from something else. May be a simple rash from a yeast infection or could be a transmittable STD. Go to a urologist and get checked out. May be as easy as taking an antibiotic or abstaining from sex until the bumps disappear. Millions of people can have the virus called HPV, but it can lie dormant for years. Go get checked out, so there is no chance of spreading an infection if that’s what it is. Woman are much more unlikely to know they contracted genital warts because the warts may not be seen from the human eye. Your mate may want to go for a pap smear and gynecological exam also.
