Genital Warts

So i have a question, this guy I've been seeing for 6 months told me he once had an out break of the herpes versus but he hasnt had an out break in years. He said we are okay as long as he's not having an out break, and he said he can always feel it coming and knows the signs. Well here is some history about me. Im female, i have had cold sores on my mouth years ago and maybe here and there throughout the years as I've struggled with tough acne as well as psoriasis. I've also had cervical cancer cells removed years but I've had good paps since then. Oh i also have a dental fistula, from a poorly executed root canal procedure done a couple years ago, and it is an open wound at times, most days. We both do oral, and i let him do anal. So my questions are with his history is he still at risk for transferring to me at any time even though he said he could tell when he is going to have an out break? Next question, do i have a chance of getting cervical cancer/ cells / again? Doesn't it just lay dormant once you have it? And since I've had cold sores on my mouth, would going down on him trigger his herpes2? I know these are some extensive questions but im too embarrassed to ask any doctor's office here because everyone knows everyone and people talk, regardless of HIPAA, so i appreciate anything you can tell me,thanks

1) Abnormal cervical cells are most likely from HPV which is human papilloma virus. 

If you have regular negative pap smears that means you no longer have the virus which can go on to cause cervical cancer

 

2) HSV is herpes simplex virus.  There are 2 types.  Type 1 (oral) and Type 2 (genital).  

Both types are spread by direct contact.  Oral can be spread to the genitals via oral sex and genital can be spread to the mouth via oral sex. 

The virus may be spread when there is an obvious lesion and prior to that when people feel the virus coming.  However, it is also thought that the virus both type 1 and type 2 may spread when there are no signs.  

 

If you have further questions or concerns schedule a confidential visit with your primary care provider, at Corner Health or at your local health department adult clinic. 

I fingered a girl with genital herpes and immediately after sometime I touched my penis. Is it possible that I will get herpes? That girl was not having an outbreak. And I don't have any cuts on my fingers or on my penis.

Herpes is spread by contact with the herpes lesion. There does not need to be a break in the skin for it to be spread.    (There is some thought that the virus may be active a for a short time before the lesions appear. ) If there were no obvious lesions it is unlikey that the virus was spread.   

My bf had contact with someone with HPV, he said she had genital warts and he made her oral, should I be concerned that he might be infected since he cheated with this girl but had sex with me some days after

Genital warts are spread by direct contact.  If he contacted them on his month after oral, he can spread them to you.

I've noticed I have small bumps located on my bartholin gland, they aren't pus filled or anything, and they're the same color as my vaginia. I've never had sex but I do masturbate( I wash my hands before ), but I have had a UTI before from being fingered from someone else. Should I be worried about these bumps or is there any thing I can do to make them go away?

It is difficult to know what the bumps are without seeing them.  They may be from irritation.  You can schedule an appointment to have them assessed.  

On the last 6 months I had sex with my ex boyfriend and now with my new boyfriend,we are really careful and are on birth control, I want to know if we should take any tests to make sure we are healthy concerning our sex life and also me as a woman what tests should I take just to be sure.

You and your new boyfriend should schedule appointments to both be tested for STIs.  Testing includes urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia and blood test for HIV, syphillis and hepatitis.  Using condoms will prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. 

Is it normal to have two spots like moles in your labia they look like brownish they don't hurt or anything they are plain, and I believe I have never seen them, should I be worried about an STD?

The moles you describe may be normal.  It is important to monitor them for any changes.  They are not typical of any STDs  You should schedule an appointment to have them looked at. 

Hello, I have noticed I have a singular wart on my gential area but it does not bother me. I have had sexual intercourse but my partner is unaffected, should I be concerned?

A genital wart is caused by a virus.  Often they are visible but sometimes they are internal and are not visible. 

There are certain strains of the virus that are more serious than others in that they can progress to cause different types of cancers. 

Your primary health care provider or Corner Health can do testing to determine any risk. 

Gardisil is the vaccine that can prevent genital warts.

My boyfriend has warts in his hands, but likes to finger me. What precautions should I take? Should I let him do it, or not? Please help me! I'm really worried about an STD.

There are many types of viruses that cause warts.  Warts on the hands commonly differ from genital warts. If the wart on a person's hand is caused by a type of human papiloma virus (HPV) that can also cause genital warts, then there is a chance that skin contact could cause genital warts.

To protect yourself against the human papilloma viruses that can cause cancers, we highly recommend Gardisil, the HPV vaccine. In addition, regular pap smears after the age of 21 will screen for abnormal cell changes of the cervix which can be caused by HPV. 

Schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center to further discuss this and get your vaccine or see your regular health care provider.

 

Is there any way to get STIs from giving a blow job?

Yes. Although the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) during oral sex is lower than transmission through vaginal or anal sex, there are many STIs that can be passed during oral sex. For example, herpes, gonorrhea and syphilis are easily and often transmitted during oral sex. Although less common, Chlamydia, hepatitis A, hepatitis C and HIV can be passed during oral sex, too.

So what does this mean? Basically, if you are choosing to have oral sex with your partner (either male or female), you need to take steps to reduce your risk of contracting an STI. Using a barrier method (like condoms and dental dams) every time you have oral sex will help to protect you and your partner. It is also a good idea for you and your partner to regularly get tested for STIs. It's important that you are in control of your sexual behavior, so if you do not want to have oral sex (or any other kind of sex for that matter) you do not have to. Abstaining from sex is always an option and can be done even if you are no longer a virgin.

If you are sexually active (meaning you have had either vaginal, anal or oral sex) make an appointment to get tested. Often you cannot tell if you or your partner has an STI, so testing is the only way to know. STIs can cause serious health problems if left untreated, and we want you to be healthy.
