In today’s world, dating can be enough of a challenge of its own…but as a woman, having Genital Warts or HPV in addition to dating can be particularly tough.
After being diagnosed, you may feel somewhat worried about dating again for fearing rejection, or simply infecting your next partner with the virus.
There are over 170 strains of HPV, which infects the skin and causes lesions and warts all over the body—including the common wart, which usually surfaces on hands; it’s associated with strains two or seven.
Of the 170 strains, more than 40 are genital related and are transmitted through sexual contact.
In addition to my emotional baggage, I’m also now healing from the genital warts that I picked up from my rebound one-night stand.
