Question: STD CHECK UP INFO
|soscared - Tue Nov 04, 2008 1:02 am|
So I'm going to have a check up for what im thinking may be genital warts. My first question is, IF this is what I think it is, What kinds of questions will they ask me? Do I need to give them the names of my past partners? To be honest, I only got the the first name of this guy I was with. Its actually going on a year since ive been with anyone sexually and how long could I have had this? I mean, could I have had it all along and not known about it? In males, how long can they go before noticing...or does it lay dormant and if so how long does it remain that way, being dormant, can they still pass it on ? I would like to know so i can be prepared. Also another question is, how does one live with this problem...because right now I AM FREAKING OUT!! Makes me feel so dirty! Please send a comment to me please!!

It is up to your state to decide what is reportable and investigated. If you do not know the name of the person, there's not much you can do. The purpose of identification of partners is to get appropriate and early treatment to anyone who might have been exposed.
Genital warts are removed, similar to other warts. They are treated with medicine to kill them or are removed through minor surgery, freezing, or laser.
Don't be afraid to see your doctor about this treatable, sexually transmitted infection.
