    To all: I'd like to say thank you for this web site. I was diagnosed with HPV a week ago, and felt like my life was over. Today, I found this website, and have read the stories of others, and feel like there is hope after all. When I was first told that I have HPV, I was in...

    I was diagnosed with HPV in 2012.

    It hasn't caused too much of an issue in my life until now. I just recently noticed small bumps in the area between my vagina and anus. I am unaware of what "type" of HPV I have so I am concerned that I have developed into the type that causes warts...type 2 I believe. I don't...

    And I don't really care.

    I honestly feel like people who are waking up every morning feeling sick, because they were hoping their diagnosis was just some terrible nightmare may be overreacting. Yes, some strains of HPV cause warts. I have a couple right now and they're completely painless and aren't...
