hpv genital wart location question

I am pretty sure that i have genital warts. Aftetr reading around the forums, I put some vinegar on a cotton swap and placed it on the areas that i think have warts. There were a few white bumps immitiately showing from this.

My question is.... these are around my anus. Is it possible for these to transfer to my vagina or do they only grow in one area? Also, if they are in the anus area, can a partner get warts from me through vaginal sex?

The vinegar test does not work well for diagnosis. You should see a doctor to be sure about having geintal warts.

The warts spread through direct skin contact. So they will likely stay in the area that has shown infection, although it is possible other areas have been infected as well.

For vaginal sex, it may be possible that you have the virus in this area as well. Furthermore, it might be hard to prevent his body from touching your anal region during sex. Warts can occur on his scrotum, for example.

First, get a diagnosis. If you have warts, get them treated and discuss risks with your partner. Warts are at their most contagious when they are visable, but it is likely that skin will remain contagious months after treatment. Condoms provide some protection, but do not protect areas that are not covered.

Although unpleasant, warts are not a major health risk. If you have warts, your partner deserves to know so he can decide if he feels the risk is acceptable.
