I am a 21 year old female who was told 5 years ago (after receiving the vaccine) that I had HPV after an abnormal growth was found on my cervix. They did not mention that this growth was a wart (which I think is pretty safe to assume now). I cried and the doctor told me that the strand I had goes away on its own and does not really have any symptoms.
Three months after the abnormal pap I no longer tested positive for HPV and was like HOORAY!!! I thought I was cured, what my doctor failed to mention was that it can lay dormant for many years. Although I have practiced safe sex I have since then been in two long and monogomous relationships, both with mutual testing (after the HPV scare, I was rather obsessed with never getting another std).
Then I started having thyroid storms and my health took a drastic turn for the worse..... Lowering my immune system drastically.
About a week ago I noticed a spot between my vagina and rectum that was a little hard. I originally believed it was just a scar from some adventerous sexual intercourse but I kept an eye on it. It was so small I had a hard time getting a good look at it so I took a picture with my camera and zoomed in on it on my computer just to come to the conclusion many of you have. I read online that a good way to test to see if a spot is indeed a genital wart is to apply a gentle acid. I have used apple cider vinegar for cooking in the past and have dranken it for its health benefits years ago, so I had it readily available (a huge gallon) in my kitchen.
I dabbed it in the area and to my horror, pretty much my entire vagina, pernium, and rectal region turned white!!! I had no idea how microscopic those darn little boogers could be.
After a day of intense crying, researching, and debating over what do I do... I decided to confide in my best friend, who happened to be a male of non sexual relations. He instantly made me feel better by saying that if he met a woman he was in love with, genital warts would not be a deterient. He was actually impressed by how I was coping :)
I then told my mother who took it surprisingly well and showed up with another gallon of apple cider vinegar :) I don't think I could use this much vinegar ever!!
Today I went from smoking half a pack of smokes a day down to 3. I am also choosing not to drink. Both of these life choices should have been made as soon as my health decreased.... But it took GWs for me to make this drastic life change. I am also taking all sorts of vitamins and oral Apple Cider Vinegar pills as well (it tastes so bad to drink)!
Pretty much I found out my entire genital region was covered with them and started of by dabbing them with q-tips of Apple Cider Vinegar making them turn white and many of the small ones I had no clue about have bled. I have read that the bleeding is normal so I was not too worried about it. The bump on my pernium has turned a dark grey today and hurts like hell, I think its because it wants to fall off. But many of the other spots turned red and completely flat against the skin but have a white center in them? I don't really know if this is normal but I am guessing it is like the root possibily?
The treatments have also been rather painful for me the entire duration, but I think it might be because many had not even started to grow, so there wasn't much tissue it had to penetrate.
I have been using a regional medicated ointment by Rawleigh, that is actually for colds and congestion (much like vix) but also heals cuts, wounds, burns, and even hemorroids. It is a life saver!!! It has menthol in it so the area is immediatly cooled down to an almost pleasurable level. It contains Camphor, menthol, oil of eucalyptus, in a base of petrolatum, mineral oild, paraffin, ceresin, and cocoa butter.... I don't know if it can be bought online but I would greatly recommend it. Legit takes pain down like no other. I also have an extremely swollen genital area and it helps with that as well.
After all the pain I have put my vagina through this past week, its like a spa retreat :P
Also, I found that for me soaking cotton balls in the avc, lining them from clit to all the way past my rectum (rather be safe than sorry) and then putting on a pantylined thong has helped me keep the avc where I would like it... I can't even imagine attempting to use bandaids or tape!
But please if you have any questions feel free to ask, also if anyone else has had any of the white spots in the center I would greatly appreciate hearing what you think!
Remember, we are still worth while and sexy individuals, regardless of these pesky GWs!!!
