Just diagnosed with vaginal warts

Hi all. I am a 32 yr old female and was diagnosed with vaginal warts two weeks ago. I have only slept with two people in my life so I know who gave it to me. I am sad and depressed because my ob made me feel like a **** and didn't really say anything except that I shouldn't have slept around and that I shouldn't have sex ever again. She subscribed aldara .5% cream and in have been using this med for a week now. I have severe itching and more warts have showed up on my labia and around the lips of my vagina. I don't know how long it takes for this cream to work. I just want the warts gone. My question is will they go away and how long does it take for this med to work? Does HPV last forever?? I am sad because I want to get married and have children. I am so sad that this happened to me. I don't know who to talk to. Please help. Any info would be appreciated. Thank u.
