About a month ago, I noticed several small bumps on my genital area. They are not painful, but extremely itchy and irritating. After checking my symptoms and asking some questions, my doctor diagnosed me with genital warts. Before my diagnosis, I had sex with three girls and engaged all in all types of intercourse. I checked all of my partners and found none of them have any bumps in their vagina. So, how can I become infected with genital warts? Or, even if I have genital warts, why my partners don't have them since I heard that genital warts can be spread through sexual contact? Do I truly have genital warts or something else? What can I do now?
As I know, you don't need to have sex to get genital warts. Masturbation, fooling around with a partner, or even just touching the general genital area can also make you become infected. The virus HPV that causes genital warts can remain in the body without causing symptoms. And, having sexual contact can make it spread to others. So, ask your partners get it checked by a doctor too. Treatment such as cryotherapy, surgery, creams, and acid solutions can help with genital warts. Also, I heard that home remedies like apple cider vinegar and garlic can remove warts, but I've never tried it. To avoid spreading, abstain from sex or use condoms while having sex.
