HPV at 18

I’ve been diagnosed with HPV 6 months ago, when I was 17. I have symptoms such as papillomas. Recently I feel awful, like I’m dirty and don’t deserve good future so I’m depressed now and my immune system is so weak. It’s vicious cycle

Hi @Supernatkid, please please try not to feel that way. You’re not dirty & you definitely do deserve a good future!! 4 out of 5 people will have HPV at some point in their lives so please do not feel alone or ashamed. It does come as a shock & makes your mind start to race but it is bery common & you’d be surprised at the amount of people you know who actually have HPV. Do you know what strain of HPV you have? I know its hard but try & up your vitamins & get your immune system feeling better.
