I have always been in the pink of health, especially when it comes to my reproductive organs. I had never had a Sexually Transmitted Disease until the other day when I had unprotected sex and contracted the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
How it all happened
After the unprotected sexual intercourse, I had a feeling that something somewhere would go wrong. It was not the first time to have unprotected sex, and I couldn’t understand why I was nervous.
After a month or so, I noticed gray growths around my genital area. I smelt a rat. I called my partner immediately to confirm my suspicion and found out that my instincts had been right from the first day. I was very disappointed. I searched for information on genital warts on Google and found that they do not normally lead to long-term health complications. However, a substantial percentage of people who have a history of genital warts also tend to get other STIs. This was a very shocking revelation.
Genital warts were things I wanted to forget as soon as I could. Life was miserable. The warts were painless, and that was a good thing. However, they would occasionally itch and make me unease, especially when in the presence of other people. The infection also seemed to be growing fast, because before I realized it, my anus was bleeding. It was time to get help.
I walked around Newport Beach city looking for a male HPV / Genital warts specialist. I am that type of a person who always likes the best in everything, so I had to look everywhere to get a reputable gynecologist. When I finally met Dr. Lauber, I knew I was in safe hands.
From his facial expressions to his clothing, Dr. Lauber was the professional that I had been looking for. He told me to undress and immediately he looked at my genitals with a magnifying lens, he reported to me that I had genital warts that were growing rapidly. He then took a certain cream from a cabinet nearby and smeared it on the warts. He wrote some prescription on a piece of paper and send me to the pharmacist. He explained that I should buy cream he had smeared on the warts on my genitals and use it until the warts disappear.
Before I left, Dr. Lauber advised me to avoid sexual intercourse until the warts cleared up. He explained to me that in a week or two, the warts would be no more. He gave an appointment in a fortnight to check on my progress.
Indeed, I learned a lot from Dr. Lauber that I believe I couldn’t have learned from anyone else. For instance, he explained to me that HPV can be transferred from one infected person to another even without penetrative sex when he realized that I regretted my sexual act. As long as there is skin to skin contact between a healthy person and an infected one, HPV can be spread. Dr. Lauber stressed on the importance of persistence and correct use of condoms in preventing genital warts. He actually gave me several packets of condoms and advised me to ensure that I use them correctly.
Indeed, from the way I felt as I left Orange County genital warts clinic, I was sure that the warts would be no more in a few days. If you have genital warts or any other STI, just look for Dr. Lauber and consider the infection cured.
