how do i know?

I DONT KNOW IF I HAVE HPV BUT I HAVE A DISCHARGE AND IT SMELL LIKE FISH OR SOMETHING. I DISCOVERED A BUMP THAT AT THE TOP LOOKS LIKE LITTLE LEGS BUMPS ON TOP THEY ARE REAL SKINNY. AND THERE ARE TWO SMALL BLACKISH BUMPS. I HAVE HAD THEM FOR ABOUT 3MTHS.

I WANDER FOR A POSSIBILITY COULD THEY BE HVP?, SO I CAN GO TO THE DOC.

WILL I LIVE WITH IT ALL MY LIFE CAUZ IM ONLY 17?

WILL I BE ABLE TO HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX WITH MY FUTURE HUSBAND WITHOUT HIM CATCHING ANYTHING?

CAN I EXPOSE MY FAMILY?

Hi there -

Discharge with a fishy odor is usually bacterial vaginitis, a natural infection that occurs just like yeast.  Its not sexually transmitted.  You would need an antibiotic to cure it though.

HPV isn't usually blackish bumps, but you should get that checked too.  You won't have that forever - most people clear it within several months.

It could be, but HPV isn't usually black.

You should get it checked.

my appointment thursday. i got a closer look with a flashlight. they are pale looking.

Does HPV cause a fish smell or vagintis or both?

Vaginitis would cause the fish smell.  HPV doesn't cause any odor at all.

i have read about bacterial vaginosis also known as vaginitis is one of the causes for hpv and so is trichomoniasis. they have the same effects as hpv.

they have vaginal itching, discharges, foul smells, and discoloration.

i have a wart and i read vagintis causes planter warts, but this looks like a bush or a wart with a lot of bumps.

hpv does causes order but it comes in 1/3 of women.

this is why they go through many tests to determine what you have.

my question is does vaginitis causes warts that looks like hpv
