Dating guy genital warts

When you're a young man whose female sexual partner has just called to tell you that she's been diagnosed with HPV, it can be hard to know what to do.

There's no commercial test used to detect the genital virus in men.

Testing for oral HPV is available, but it isn't widely recommended.

Their matter-of-fact attitude about it helped me feel better about the whole ordeal, though I was quite glad when I finally became HPV-free.

For those of you out there with the virus, there’s no reason to feel bad about yourselves. Men are carriers of all strains of HPV, but unlike women, they aren’t tested for it.

If you are one to be candid with people, you'll want to blurt it out. There are some things you should reveal about yourself right away -- for example, that you're married, or that you're just in town for the week -- but some things are better left for the appropriate moment.

It's up to you to decide the right time to tell a date that you have genital herpes.

You may even worry how the cancer could affect you. Most people with the virus never go on to develop cancer. When people do develop HPV-related cancers, they are usually extremely treatable.

When caught early, treatment may simply involve removal of affected tissue.

I’ll try to provide a few facts about HPV that might help get the conversation started…

You’re on the right track to gather information and start thinking about what to say to your boyfriend about genital warts.

It’s practically like getting chicken pox at this point — a rite of passage. I was surprised that I knew anyone at all who had gotten them, but most people aren’t going around sharing their sexual health history with everyone they know. You don’t get it because you’re promiscuous, or sleeping with promiscuous guys.
