I know how touchy it is when people post on this board seeking medical advice , BUTTTTT
I'm just wondering if anyone else has been through or had a similar experience , and how did You / yee deal with this .
I have genital warts. I know ... its scanky. I had SWS. ( sex while stupid )
I was never that promiscuous but made two stupid mistakes and got into a whole load of trouble. Trouble that at the time , made genital warts pale into insignificance in comparison .
Anyway , I did try to deal with the problem when it arose but encountered the same problems that exist today. Every doctor I see ... its never a huge deal to them. They talk to me like i'm an idiot. They try and wring their hands of responsibility or even interest.
The most recent doctor I've seen , on my college campus , has made three chryo attemps to reduce what are not ... massively obvious or conspicious symptoms of gential warts ( ie. the warts themselves) She brought this flask of nitrogen in and applied it with a giant cotton bud , and made sure I knew how much it was costing her and what a nuisance I was for bringing this problem to her. ect ect.
She then advised me to go and queue up at a local gum clinic like everybody else in the country ( those are my words not hers) , because she doesnt have the latest technology that they would have to solve the problem. She is completely washing her hands of this. She wants nothing to do with me and my genital warts.
But I dont think anyone who has never had an std like warts understands how debilitating it is... although my nurse was sympathetic.
I asked the doctor to prescribe me some cream that i would apply it myself and try and get rid of the symptoms once and for all , she says no , because I could end up paralysed or some ****. She said if I was a guy with the warts on his penis , she could get rid of them no prob , but because of the position and location of them ( probably inside aswell ) she needs to refer myself to someone with the right technology.
So off I go at the next opportunity to the local (milles away) gum clinic. Where I will cue up in a waiting room for hours only to be interviewed about every single aspect of my life , only to be told that I can come back on a date when I will probably not be available due to commitments outside my vagina.
DOES ANYONE know the solution to my problem?????
I know that this does not just dissapear and could stay around for years , but what do other people do to just rid themselves of the shame and sheer feeling of ugliness that comes with all of the above.
according to the doctor this is a really common thing. That doesnt console me one bit. I want rid. FOREVER.
Thanks for reading.
