    Yesterday...I noticed the warts.

    ..it's a VERY small cluster of raised flesh colored ones. Only had sex with one person, never had a STD, so of course, I did all the research. Crappy thing is that it's the weekend so no doctor's offices are open to ask questions and I am tooooooo nervous about this even though I...
