Question: possible genital warts?


 soscared - Fri Jan 04, 2008 5:57 am

The other night I was with this guy and he was stimulating me with his fingers, rubbing INSIDE n OUT of my vagina...it wasnt until the next day that I remembered he had a "bump" on his finger. IM not sure, but I think IT MIGHT have been a wart!! Is it possible to get genital warts this way? What does this mean for my sexual activity IF it was a wart? Can I still have children? I really need an answer here!

User avatar Hi Soscared,

Warts are caused by the virus HPV (human papilloma virus). There are over 100 different strains of this virus. The strains that cause warts on the hand (usually types 1 and 2) are not the type that cause genital warts (usually types 6 and 8). So, warts on hands will not spread the virus and cause genital warts.

Likewise, this type of contact will not compromise your fertility or cause any genital problems for you.

Best wishes.
