Long time sufferer here. Was infected twice. First time, one wart, gyno put acid on it, then finally removed it in a 2nd visit. Lab couldn't identify it because of the acid.

Then I was reinfected in early 2000's by a boyfriend who didnt tell me his history. This has never cleared my system. Back then a gyno said she would not help me, straight out was a such a d*** to me, nasty in my face, like she count be bothered, like I disgusted her with my little wart. And I had insurance too. Planned Parenthood stepped up and did acid treatments and were totally cool to me. It removed those warts, and I felt better, but I wasn't cleared if the virus, so I did ACV for years after that for subsequent flare ups.

Then I had a big relapse and PP told me they would not treat me for HPV, so I've been using ACV on and off for a long time.

People say on other forums/comments to go to a doctor and not to use ACV, they are wrong. Go to Dr to get tested if you are female (I am low risk), but then self treat with ACV, and be more diligent than me.

Now I am on a mission now to keep up with the removal of all warts, and to clear HPV from my system, so when I get my next pap my gyno will not say I have HPV.

For a while there has been a big wart on my minor labia, and I have treated it with ACV half heartedly, and mostly ignored it. But last week I said no more, and now it has been just over 1 week since I put on my big girl pants and vowed to clear this once and for all.

Now my warts are all white (meaning dead) with diligent use of ACV, external full strength (not daily), .5% salicylic acid (will get 2%), and today I did a ACV douche diluted with half water.

Soon I hope to work up to full strength ACV douching, in not sure, I need to research more on that.

Once my present white external warts are home I will do a weekly Wednesday overnight AVC check up. BTW, it is best to apply after a shower. I use cotton balls to coat my labia with ACV, then cut 2 cotton rounds in half, douse them with ACV, apply to labia, then go to sleep.

Soon I will try a pinch of baking soda mixed with a few drops of castor oil to make paste. Alternatively I will also be using Retin A since a study said it helped meat hopeless cases like me, and since I have the stuff I might as well use it.

My diet is good. No soda, red meat, food dyes, junk food.

Fingers crossed that I clear this HPV virus for good. This would not be possible without ACV with the mother (I use Bragg's). It is a life saver!

I must say Apple Cider Vinegar works but it can be tricky you have to figure out the process at first it seems like its working when the first layer comes off you just have to stay at it not everyone body is the same healing may take longer but it will work for me it looked so ugly I didn't know if it was getting better or not but now I understand that it will scab over and start to peel and underneath is a new layer of skin I almost start another session towards the end because of how it looked but behind the crusty black flakey scab was a new layer of healthy skin I'm so happy 😊 I thought my sex life was done thanks to this forum I'm all clear don't give up this does work. I wish I had pictures of the process but I didn't know if this would work but it did πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘.

I remember the first time I noticed a wart on my shaft. 5 years ago. Freaked me out. Read about ACV as a treatment and started to spot treat it. Used cotton, plastic wrap, and medical tape to keep it on all night. The first night it turned white and swelled up huge. It was like it was hiding behind the skin. After the second night the pain was real but I kept at it. Third night it tuned black. Fourth white again. On the seventh day, something weird happened. I was like the white just turned to mush and it came off with a wipe. Sort of like the ACV just dissolved it after 7 days. Hurt like a mother to apply it in that period but when I saw it just smoosh away it was like wow, gone. Worth it. Thought about one more night just to be safe but chickened out looking at the crater it left.

Just put a little polysporin on the spot and wrapped it and went to bed.. There was a small crater where it was but after the swelling went down from the ACV treatment you couldn't even tell where it was or that it existed. Never came back. I'm a healthy guy, eat healthy. Sure that helps. So, bummer. I found this tiny bump in another spot and put some ACV on it, and that tiny bump has grown into a huge white spot ....again. Like its hiding Guess round 2. But at least I know its going to work and when its gone, it's gone.

I applied apple cider vinegar to a vaginal wart that occurred in the same spot about 6 yrs ago. It was so close to the mucus membrane of my vagina I wasn't sure it would work.

Here's what I did. I kept a small container near the toilet and I put little pieces of rolled up cotton in the ACV. I'd take one out and put it directly on the wart. I know this is graphic but here is where it was. The wart was on my labia major but almost on a fold that turned into the labia minor. It was a weird spot. I'd arrange the cotton on the wart and then fold my labia to cover it and hold it there for however long it would stay there.

It kinda burned and felt uncomfy but I kept up with it. The dimensions got smaller within a few days. By day 5 I couldn't feel it anymore but I continued to put ACV on the spot because I felt there was perhaps a bit more under the skin. So far so good!! All gone. I had a wart removed from that same spot 6 yrs ago... so it seems it is a reoccurring virus.

I did try tea tree essential oil during the first round but the TTO did not make such fast gains as the apple cider vinegar.

I just want to say thank you to all you brave people who have shared your experiences on here. I am a 51-year-old recently divorced woman (married for 30 years) who caught genital warts from the first man I slept with, and I only had sex with him once. Now that's bad luck! I literally noticed my first wart, 4 months later, as a tiny pinhead sized pimple, but I'm very aware of my body and I knew it was something new. By the time I got an appointment at the STI clinic I had grown another one.

At my first visit the lady froze everything she believed to be a wart, and has told me to come back next week but I'm very proactive and I do believe in home remedies so I have been having baths with apple cider vinegar Teatree Bicarb of soda and castor oil and soaking for as long as I can I've also been putting raw Braggs apple cider vinegar directly onto my vagina with a cotton wool pad and leaving it on for about 15 minutes. (Yes I have burnt myself!)

The first tiny wart that I found has now dropped off, the second one is looking a bit sick but I came up with some new tiny weenie little pinhead ones that have now disappeared, clearly because of the a ACV! I now think I've come up with one on my anus which is lovely!!! But to be honest I am not letting this get me down and you shouldn't either. It's just warts! It's not the end of the world they will go away and your immune system will suppress the virus eventually and you will not pass it on! Chickenpox is a virus when you catch it you are extremely contagious but your body fight the virus and suppresses it and even though you will have that virus for the rest of your life you will not pass it on, genital warts is exactly the same principle!! I am literally 2 weeks into my experience and I'm determined to stay positive I will get rid of these little fuckers and then get on with the rest of my life! And even at the ripe old age of 51 I've learnt a very important lesson, to respect my body enough to only share it with someone I really really care about, Because that one shag for fun was absolutely not worth all this!!!!

Good luck my lovelies, and stay positive! Xx

Hey there, as many of you, I also got GW. When I went to the gynecologist she said they are warts. I was sure they werent because I have only one partner, my partner doesn't have them). Plus, we never had sex without condom. So, this means that you can get GW from everywhere. I bought Apple Cedar Vinegar (AVC) just to see if they will become white, there I realized I really have GW. I did the method as everyone else here. I put AVC in the place I had them, which I had a lot. Today is my last day of the second week and Im almost GW free. I have some small bumps close when you open the vagina, but I am trying not to put pressure on it as it is a delicate area. I would suggest you to use before and after the AVC treatment Hydrogen Peroxide. In meanwhile, I have change my diet as well and eating vitamins A, C, L and planning to take more.

P.s I kept it short but bear in mind that you are not alone. I was very depressed and took anti depressant pills. But, know I know that GW are almost gone, it feels like I have a brand new vagina in 2 weeks treatment. Best of luck!

Hi, I am 27 girl and I got HPV a year ago. It all started with one wart, when I removed it in the clinic, after that I had many .. each time cost 180$ for a visit. I was so exhausted tired, I cried everyday, hated myself and promised not to have sex again till marriage.. I found this page. Got myself ACV I soaked a cotton ball in it then taped it to the warts .. IT HURTS SO BAD. The thing is my whole V turned to be white! Anyway I had burned myself I was so aggressive, first day 24 hours straight, then 12 hours, then 7 hours, I stopped today I was bleeding. While I'm using tissue after peeing, the tissue turned black! Like little black dots, YUCKS ! I brought a mirror! HOLY MOLLY! The whole area pinkish with holes, the warts fall off! Except 2! 2 small ones! But the area is so red and irritating bleeding, BUT I DON'T CARE! I know it will heal with Vitamin E, I will wait for Two days then I will repeat again, ACV IS MAGIC HEALER! I'm so happy only 3 times and 80% of them fall, yup I burned myself but I'm happy with the results, I don't care if I scared, as long as I dnt have any warts, BTW, I soak cotton ball in ACV no adding water nothing, directly to the warts ,, and yes SLEEP WITH IT, u will find quick results, THANK U

I've struggled with a mild case of HPV for 2 years now. I started with the medicated cream which was $180.00 Canadian. It knocked me out so bad with the flu and fever I was hospitalized and it absolutely ruined my vagina with sores, puss etc. (NIGHTMARE) Then went to driving 25 mins to freeze them with a dermatologist. It stung and I didn't see any difference after months of treatment. I then got referred to a gynaecologist in my area who used a different cream which didn't hurt but it wasn't aggressive enough and I found it a waste of time. I then started googling home remedies and came across Apple Cidar!!! I bought 3 large Heinz containers of it for 3 bucks at Walmart. I soaked a face cloth with it, folded it in half and laid it down on the cluster I have.

They immediately went white and it did sting. I did 2 hours each night and one hour in the morning. I'm on my 4th day and half of the cluster is gone. I started tearing up I couldn't believe it. THIS IS LEGIT! I never saw them fall off, I was just doing my progress check up and they were gone!! I've done nothing else to treat me like hydrogen peroxide or tea tree oil. Just apple Cidar. Couldn't be more stoked!

They say if something good happens to you, you have to pay it forward. That's the reason for me writing this review, so that others can benefit from it. Yes, Apple Cider vinegar works. I was hesitant at first but I can't afford the very expensive procedure that the doctor is asking from me (some doctors these days will just leech your money and have already forgotten their Hippocratic oath. It's sad but it's true). The good news is that ACV costs a mere fraction of what doctors are requiring. And you can save yourself from the humiliation because it's readily available at the grocery.

Here are the procedures I did:

  1. Pour Hydrogen Peroxide to the affected area for disenfection.
  2. Dab a Qtip with ACV (get one with "the Mother", just enough that it won't leak to unaffected areas. Hold it down to the wart. Be careful not to touch healthy skin for it will also burn. During the first day, I didn't feel any sting yet but the wart will turn white. Press on the wart for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. After pressing on the wart with ACV, pour Hydrogen peroxide again to keep it bacteria free.
  4. Do this procedure twice a day. Once in the morning and again in the evening. The sting will begin when the skin is already burned and open by ACV. Just tolerate it for it is bearable. Better endure it than being miserable.
  5. When the wart turns grey or black, it means it is dead. Stop the ACV treatment. For me it just took 3 days because mine was just small ones (not bigger than pieces of rock salt).
  6. Now you will start to heal the burned skin. It will leave a white open wound.
  7. Pour Hydrogen Peroxide to the wound. Then wipe it dry with a tissue paper.
  8. Massage the wound with Virgin Coconut Oil twice a day. Leave it after massaging, don't wipe it dry. Believe me, Virgin Coconut oil is also a God send because when I woke up one day it already healed the wound as if nothing happened. I think it only took 3 days after I stopped the ACV and started the VCO treatment when it healed.

That's it. It is quick, inexpensive and it works! I hope this helps someone who is as devastated as I was when I realized I got these warts. But cheer up, God and mother nature also sent some magic.

Apple Cider Vinegar for genital warts is a godsend! I use organic apple cider vinegar, along with sometimes putting the oil from inside a vitamin E capsule on them. I also take by mouth every day: Vitamin C, D and E, garlic, folic acid, B12, and green tea supplements to support my immune system. Occasionally I take probiotics as well along with drinking ACV in water. The vitamin e oil seems to help soothe the area of any itching or burning.

I put ACV directly on the warts, diluted with water (the first time I didn't dilute it and geeze did it hurt) and if you have vitamin E all over the area it helps to protect the healthy skin. I have some around my vulva and vaginal opening only, so it's important for me to make sure I don't hurt the sensitive tissues. I'm super thankful for the vitamin E. The other day I noticed one pop up near my urethra. This was after leaving vitamin e on the area for like 45min. Then I treated with ACV. The vitamin e not only helped the burning sensation, but made the treatment a lot more bearable.

Then, I decided I would soak in a bath with ACV to see what would happen. This was the best thing ever. I put about 2.5 cups in the water with some coconut oil and soaked for an episode and a half of Supernatural. There was little burning down there, and only a temporary tingling sensation on my legs and hands. Just be careful when showering after the bath to remove the ACV if you use coconut oil! The bathtub will be EXTREMELY slippery, and I suggest scrubbing the tub before you shower. Anyway, the next morning I had, I'm assuming, one of the newly blackened warts fall off into the toilet (I don't think there could be any other explanation), and throughout the day I kept wiping off little brown/black things. The major warts I noticed were gone and it was only a night! Granted, I had been treating them topically for a few days, but soaking in a bath instead was extremely helpful and faster acting, maybe because I was in the bath for longer. I will definitely be doing the ACV bath at least once a week from now on and I highly recommend it.

Hi everyone,

I never write reviews but I really want to because the ACV trick will turn things around.

I'm not going to lie, going straight to the doctor and having my worst fears confirmed, I felt sick. It is very hard to take and accept...all sorts of things run through your head. After shaving completely down there and in good light, I was mortified to see at 13 of these disgusting looking things in my pubic region, mainly on the right side of the shaft. I started using the cream prescribed and after 1 week of nothingness, I was stressing. Mainly because I was about to go on a big vacation over the new year period.

I started the intense ACV treatment late November and these are the Do's and Dont's

First of all, the ACV has to be "with the mother" I tried the other stuff and it didn't work, thank god I gave the other stuff a go before giving up.

I found the most effective method for me was simply just using q tips as opposed to cotton balls and band aids. the problem with the latter is that you cant maintain pressure on the wart and when it comes time to remove the band hurts so much..f that

Dab the q tip in Apple Cider Vinegar and press down on the wart so that no Apple Cider Vinegar runs off anywhere else. I found 10 minutes is enough time needed, going longer made no difference. The wart will be white upon removal, then slowly return to skin color. If it doesn't turn white, it's not a wart.

I would do this once in the morning and again at night before sleep, I experimented with multiple times a day to see if I could speed up the whole process but it made no difference for me.

I noticed on the second night the wart would start to go greyish and by the 3rd night be almost black.

Once it goes black, it no longer responds to the ACV. As in, it won't go white after another 10 minute session...its dead. Leave it. it should get a little smaller on day 4 then on day 5 or 6...its gone!

What not to do: after it goes black after 3 or 4 days, don't try and speed things up by making it fall off by touching it or running too much hot water over it in the shower. If it comes off too early before the new skin grows under it properly, good chance it'll get infected. Happened a few times...because I was in a rush to get rid of them. I had to go on antibiotics to fix that. So for me, from the moment I spot one, I know in 6 days its completely gone and unnoticeable.

This "don't" was scary.

Don't leave the Apple Cider Vinegar on the skin of your penis for too long! .. when I first started the treatment, I had cotton balls of Apple Cider Vinegar everywhere trying to kill the 13 of them, 1 of them was on the penis itself. I can't remember how long I left it..maybe 30 to 40 mins...took it off to see the skin on my dick like a prawn...acv will burn..that skin is a lot more sensitive than other areas. that took about 3 weeks to completely heal.

Once I worked out what works best for me, I could get rid of a new one in 5 days. I noticed after getting rid of all 13,1 would come back every week..but as time passed, they are appearing less and less. 6 months later (today) the longest I've gone is 7 weeks without one coming back. Id love to hear from someone whos been doing this for longer.

I will update again in 6 months

Last week I found I had one wart on my labia. In a panic, I searched the internet for a cure and everything pointed to acv. So here's what I did. I got some Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother and put it into a baby food jar with a few drops of tea tree oil. Then I used a cotton ball and dabbed it on for about an hour. Then I took a look. OMG!! I thought what have I done! I could see literally hundreds of them. Tiny compared to the one I started with, but I wanted to cry!!! I cleaned myself with some peroxide and applied vitamin E oil mixed with coconut oil and went to bed reading frantically about what I should do.

The next morning I showered, and dabbed the vinegar mix on again. This time it HURT...but I was determined to give it a good try. Cleaned with peroxide, applied my oil, and went to work. Everytime I went to toilet I cleaned myself with peroxide and reapplied the oil as needed. That night took a shower, and looked. The warts were white, but some looked like little craters, like the little wart had fallen out and just the surrounding skin was left. Excited to see progress, I dabbed my Apple Cider Vinegar cotton ball again. Not kidding...this time made me cry...Very painful. Applied my oil and went to bed.

The next morning I showered and took a look. The warts were white, I had several tiny craters, and some tiny spots bleeding. I did my little routine again. And went to work with my little bottles of oil and peroxide. That evening I showered and took a look. Everything was red and irritated except for little white warts and craters and some small little bloody pinpoints. I decided to take a break and just cleaned with peroxide and applied my oil then went to bed.

The next day everything looks waterlogged, swollen, and angry, so I decide to give it a rest and let things heal up a bit. Over the next couple of days the warts continued to come off, and the ITCHING...whoa...the itching was awful.

I plan to let things heal a couple more days, then repeat the process until all are gone. Currently everything seems to be drying up..the little warts that are left are very hard now but a white, grey color. It's been a total of 7 days since I started.
