Genital warts personal experiences:
Human papillomavirus (HPV) – sexually transmitted disease (STD)
Posted by Dan:
My wife just found out that she has internal genital warts. She is going to have them removed. I understand that I too could have the virus, although I do not have any visable warts or symtoms. Does anyone know what I need to do and what kind of examine a doctor will do on me? Any information at all would be helpful.

Genital warts are caused by the Human papillomavirus (HPV) which is a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
Just because you can’t see genital warts doesn’t mean you don’t have the papillomavirus. The HPV infection can have a long incubation period, meaning months can pass between the time a person is infected with the virus and the time a person notices the STD warts in the genital area. Sometimes, the warts can take years to develop. See your doctor. Your doctor may be able to diagnose the warts just by examining you.
