I had hpv (genital warts) when I was 16… can I still pass it to my child?

April 13, 2009 by admin 

My 2 year old daughter got Genital Warts last month. Her father is currently being investigated and tested, but he's demanding I be tested also. I had this when I was 16, but never had any warts since then and am 37 now. Is it still possible this could have come from me by my changing her diapers?
I did NOT have vaginal birth. My daughter was a C-section birth.
Ive NEVER had a "breakout".

    If you had a breakout and didn't wash your hands before changing your daughter I suppose it could be possible. It sounds like you have a rough road a head of you here and if I were you the first thing I would do is consult with a Dr. to see if something like that is even possible and then get a lawyer.

    If you had them when you were pregnant and gave birth naturally it might be possible that you gave them to her then but she is just now getting a break out.
