Others are called "low-risk" types, and they may cause mild Pap test abnormalities or genital warts.
Genital warts are single or multiple growths or bumps that appear in the genital area, and sometimes are cauliflower shaped. Approximately 20 million people are currently infected with HPV.
Typically, another outbreak can appear weeks or months after the first, but it almost always is less severe and shorter than the first outbreak.
Genital HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of four women) than in men (almost one out of five).
This may be due to male-to-female transmissions being more likely than female-to-male transmission. HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause, but they also are released between outbreaks from skin that does not appear to be broken or to have a sore.
I'm quite independent and strong minded, but can be silly!
Looking for someone special, who's personality complements mine.
More than 30 of these viruses are sexually transmitted, and they can infect the genital area of men and women including the skin of the penis, vulva (area outside the vagina), or anus, and the linings of the vagina, cervix, or rectum.
Most people who become infected with HPV will not have any symptoms and will clear the infection on their own.
When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum.
The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur.
Some of these viruses are called "high-risk" types, and may cause abnormal Pap tests.
They may also lead to cancer of the cervix, vulva, vagina, anus, or penis.
I am lots of fun with a very sarcastic and dry sense of humour.
