My journey to rid myself of GW: Tonight begins my hope for relief. About a moth ago, I felt a strange growth on my anus as I was finishing in the bathroom. I figured it was a skin tag, and decided to forget about it. Over the last few weeks, I'd began to notice more and more, until about a dozen or so of these things were surrounding my anus and speading along my perinium. Last night I finally got up the courage to examine them. I put the mirror down there and HOLY HELL WHAT THE @#+$ IS THAT??? Immediately I jumped online and searched. It finally all added up. I was diagnosed with HPV 3 years ago while pregnant with my son, but the doc said I didn't have a strain that would cause GW. Guess she was wrong. I'm thiinking it got into the anal region when my ex husband decided to spice up our sex life with anal sex, causing fissures and bleeding. I thought, these disgusting little buggers have GOT TO GO! I found this site and, thank the heavens, I'm beginning a compress of ACW, crushed garlic, and a splash of HP at bedtime. I've also started eating a garlic clove or two a day, along with echinaecea. I have high hopes from all the yeas on this site, and I have been a believer in natural healing for years. Update tomorrow... wish me luck!
