Hi I am 19 years old. I have had a large outbreak of genital warts on my vaginal opening and inside my vagina for about 9 months ( i caught this from an abusive ex bf). I have been trying to treat the external warts with topical treatments and cryotherapy. I have also had one shot of depo-provera injection which ran out 2 months ago. My new bf left me because of this I can't seem to get rid of them.
The last time I visited the sexual health clinic the doctor did a pelvic exam, she found that I had BV and thrush. However she said my cervix looked quite red which really worried me, previously they had said it looked normal. She said it was cervical erosion.
She referred me straight to gynecology for a colposcopy since I have warts all on the inside of my vagina and am not due for my first smear test until I am 25. I am really worried about this, could this be caused by the HPV? I know the strain that causes warts do not cause cancer but could I have more than one strain?
I am really worried because I am so young and I haven't told my parents about this as I know they will not be supportive.
Also I am attending the same gynecology department later this year with my mom as I have a dermoid overian cyst that needs removal (she insists on attending all of my appointments as she is worried). Is it possible that she will find out that I have HPV and went for this procedure during this appointment?
I am really scared that it is something serious due to the HPV I just think I'm too young to be going through all of this. I just really need some advice x
