Why We Should not Ignore Early Genital Warts Signs

October 28, 2009 by admin 

There is one thing that my friend and i would rather not talk about in public; Early Genital Warts. This condition is very real, so real that over 80% of the adult population in the world has been affected by it in one way or another. Just because you avoid Early Genital Warts, it doesn’t mean that it will go away.

One thing is for sure; if you ignore early Genital Warts signs you could be doing an injustice to yourself and your partner. Some signs of genital warts actually manifest themselves in a peculiar way, you may never recognize them in time, but if there are early genital warts signs these should not go unheeded. The advice of a physician should be sought as soon as possible; this is what my friend did. He did not take chances and i thank him for that even today.

Genital warts infection is also referred to as HPV; this means Human Papilloma Virus for those who need to be specific. I used to believe that this virus is a form of herpes but later i came to realize that this is not true. Genital Warts infection and herpes are two separate infections, but both are definitely sexually transmitted diseases or STDs in short.

Early Genital warts are considered very contagious since they affect the moist tissues and are spread by direct skin to skin contact with an infected person. Contraction of the genital warts mostly happens during sexual intercourse that involves, the mouth, the anus, the penis and of course the vagina. Be warned though, that a person will also re-infect themselves on other parts of their body when they don’t remember to wash off their hands after coming into contact with the warts.

The best thing to do is not to keep quiet about the early signs of genital warts. As much as one would feel so embarrassed to open up to their doctor about the problem, just take a step of courage and you could be saving yourself from further damage of a precious part of your body.

Human Papilloma virus, also known as HPV which is linked to cervical cancer could get an opportunity to present itself if early Genital warts are left untreated. However since early genital warts may cause no symptoms to some people it increasingly becomes difficult for them to seek fast treatment

There are some other signs that can be translated as early genital warts symptoms all the same. This could be, Bleeding during intercourse, a burning sensation or itching in the genital area, small red or pink flesh swellings which take the shape of a cauliflower, among others.

If you suffer from any of the above, chances are, you could be having the HPV virus, and need to seek assistance so as to start treatment immediately. Because of its highly contagious nature, sexual partners need not be left out since they too could be suffering in silence while they could be looking for medical attention to determine if they have genital Human Papilloma virus

Having sexual relations with a partner who is infected with HPV does not necessarily mean that you will display early genital warts signs or symptoms immediately. Possibly, due to changes in the immune system for each individual, this can even be anything between 3weeks to a few years.

Owing to this factor, it therefore becomes pretty difficult to know, How, When and from whom you contracted the disease from. Take note, for those who have multiple sexual partners, chances of them displaying early genital warts symptoms are quite high and almost immediate. Don’t forget this also depends a lot on the condition of your health at the time you contracted the virus and also what type of HPV it is that you get.
