Yet another question...I haven't had a chance to ask my ob yet, so I'm asking anyone who might know. So I'm 8 weeks along and the warts have come back full force...they usually don't bother me, itch occasional, but never actually hurt. I have one in particular that is just freaking hurting me now..is that normal?
I think it depends where its at. Mine are really itchy...they were so inflamed at my last appt, the doc wouldn't give me an acid treatment :( Sometimes they itch so bad, it wakes me up. Ask your doc about Pramosone. Its a cream you can put on warts to relieve the pain and itching.
oh ok..THANK YOU! why wouldn't they give an acid treatment? can you get those pregnant? also i have another question...my husband knows I have hvp..I did not get it from him, but I have been honest..though I still find it embarassing and I kinda don't want him in the room when we have to take a closer look at warts or get a treatment done on them...cause it just makes me wanna cry and i'm already emotional about crap..any suggestions?
Awe...hang in there, honey. Your hubby doesn't have to look. The important part is that he is understanding. This is very common! The acid burns when applied but only lasts for a few seconds. He wouldn't do it last time, because if the sores are red (itchy) they can break open and the acid can really be bothersome. Yes! They can use the acid when pregnant! :) as far as emotions go, I'm so in your boat...its very dis-heartening and we think we are "gross" but we aren't, and this too, shall pass! I actually showed my hubby my warts after my first treatment because they were all white looking and I wanted him to see...that is the only time, but we are very close, and he is super understanding with the whole situation ( I didn't get mine from him either). Hang in there!! :o)
Your support mean alot you actually made me cry..thank you for your kind words. I'm happy to hear they can be treated while pregnant and I'm going to call them tomorrow to atleast ask for the cream if nothing else. And your right...I do feel gross. My husband is always more understanding then I think he will be in my head, cause all the other people I've been with never where am I'm not use to that and we are newly married. I have choosen a new dr for the baby because the dr that diagnose my hpv was aggrivated with that fact I had it and wouldn't take the time to explain things to me..so i'm still kinda confussed about it and hope the new doctor will have more patience with me. I wonder how to get rid of it, if it will go away, if my husband will/can/or does have it, how to get it to go away and stay away if possible, is sex safe when one partner has an outbreak but the other doesn't, will the baby be ok, will i need a csection??? I don't know...and I haven't had anyone to ask...so I do thank you for support..its nice to have someone to talk to.
We are newly weds, as well, but been together for about 5 years. I know that my hubby and I share the same strains of HPV, and he has never ever shown any symptoms. It is likely that HPV will go away on its own within 6-24 months, or at least go dormant again, once your baby is born. And once our hormones get back to normal! Lol! I never had warts prior to becoming pregnant. The cells can change so much, causing a flare up when pregnant. My doctor said he has never seen a case of HPV effect a baby through delivery in his 30 years of practice. I really trust his opinion and he has seen me through all of this. As well as my husband! :) My instinct, through perspective is that your growing family will be just fine! :) I'm so happy to hear that your husband is understanding with your situation. Since my hubby and I already share the same strains of HPV, we have a sex life anyways :) I try not to let it get me down...my doctor said "if you 2 feel comfortable during an out break, you will be fine" again, my husband has never shown any symptoms. Its all because I am pregnant! And he's not! Lol! Usually the acid treatments take a few times to fully get rid of an outbreak, depending on size and location of the warts. The Pramosone takes care of discomfort in-between treatments. My doctor also said it is safe to use a Neosporin with pain reliever in it. Like I said before, hang in there!! We can get through this! :)
hey :( I'm balling...i'm so sad. I had my last baby at a umc hospital..they work weird and I got upset. (i didn't have hvp then) I'm only 7 weeks and I know this cause I had to go to their er a week ago..they made me an apt with the clinic, but it isn't till the 2nd. I know the er isn't the one to deal with my hvp...so I call the clinic to ask someone..the fount desk lady keeps telling me "go to the er", so i broke down and told her what I need pretaing to the hpv which embarassed me and made me cry cause she was so damn ugly...I endede up having to repeat this to 4 different people and they still told me to go to the er and trasnfered me to the er, so I told the er what was wrong, by this time just balling...and they said there is nothing they can do or me. So now i'm just so sad, embrassed, and still in pain...i don't know what to do, but cry...why won't anyone help me?
Shoot, I will call the clinic for you! Go to the store, get some neosporin, relax...some times, health care officials can be so demeaning. Hang tight honey. Everything will be fine. I'm thinking of you!
so I am to the er anyway and they are gonna see for the hpv...i don't know what they want to do about it yet...but they also just wanted to do a quick sono to check on the baby...i'm kinda freaked out and crying. It took her a very long time to find the heartbeat and she had to call another doctor to come in and help her find it. They did find it, but first they had to make sure it wasn't mine...mine was 70 and the babys was 117. Thats ok right? My own heart felt like it was stopping...I was here a week ago and they had no problem finding the heartbeat and measured the baby to be 6w2d then...so i'm scared..they did find out, but then they just walked out of the room and haven't been back in...i'm trying not to freak out...all my hvp worries and crap are gone...i'm so stressed and all i can do is cry...i'm not bleeding, spotting, or cramping..I wasn't here for this...i'm just freaking out..is 117 heartbeat ok?? why did they just walk out and haven't been back?
Sit tight girl...you aren't very far along, so the baby could be in a weird position and they aren't able to detect a heartbeat...I didn't hear a heartbeat to 14 weeks. The worst you can do is get stressed. Hang in there! You'll be fine! Keep me posted, take some deep breaths!! :)
thanks for always talk to me...even when I freak out. I had a horrible day that day...they made me feel like a worthless piece of gross crap that day. I had to repeat my issue to 12 different people before i saw a dr. I had one nurse ask me in the waiting room one if i was pregnant (i'm in a pregnancy only er at this point and this is not my first time being pregnant as i have an 8 year old and a 3 year old) I say yes..she says how far along? i say 7 weeks, she says 7 mnths (i'm obviously not that big yet, so this erked me anyway), I said NO 7 WEEKS, then she says why are you here? I said I don't want to talk about it here and she says well u can't go to the back till i get an answer, so I have to say i'm there for hpv in a waiting room full of people. she was aggrivated because they where busy and she was trying to weed out mistakes of nonpregnant people being there, I get that, but in my case i thought the treatment was unessary. Hvp is a sensitive subject anyway. So I get to the back and i'm at the hopsital i use for my last baby and I get a nurse I now remember from last time who I'd forgotten about, but she gave me crap too. Last time I was pregnant I was very, very sick. I had gastroparesis, a gastric pacemaker, kindey cancer, and a port. I'm not sick anymore, but she doesnt know this and decides to give her input without being asked for it that I don't need anymore kids and she is now aggrivated with me because I have hpv. I finally see a doctor, u read the above story..they walk out on me...15 min later... jerk nurse walks in with discharge papers and no explinations for me as to what was going or a treatment for hpv...NOTHING. I left humilliated, worried, and soo stress I ended up having a panic attack. I called another ob office that was connected to another hospital and explain in tears what my problem was...thankfully they had mercy on me, said they would see me, and got me in yesterday for a more emergency apt to handle the hvp and stuff. They where much nicer and I got the help I needed. They gave me a cream called veregan..its suppost to remove warts after being used for a couple of days...not as strong as the regular acid treatments I had before I was pregnant (done by dr in office), but same theory...just takes a little longer to work, but was in their minds safe during pregnancy. I used it for the first time last night before i went to bed..i guess it went ok..i woke up several times last night cause after a while it seemed to make them burn and itch..i guess i keep useing it and see what happens...i just wanted to let u know i was doing a little better...
