Question: warts in a monogamous relationship
|worryworrygirl - Fri Mar 14, 2008 12:25 pm||
My boyfriend and I have been together for 15 years. I've had multiple partners before him, but none since. He was a virgin before me. About a month ago he noticed some little bumps on his penis. In the last 2 weeks they've spread. Now they are bigger and more of them. He works for the public and has used other toilets. I've had 2 kids and paps yearly and not a bad report. How do you think this happened? Could I have had it for 15 years and not known?

There are various types of warts and the one most commonly associated with genital infection is from the HPV (virus) which is screened at your annual gynecological exam so I would say it is unlikely to be this. Other lesions might include molluscum contagiosum or herpes. It would be important for him to see a doctor for a correct diagnosis and treatment since we can only guess from here.
