I found out I had genital warts after years of self-diagnosing and I thought I didn’t have anything until they spread to my thighs. I had a lot of burning and itching and that makes them spread I think. It went from tiny bumps to getting bigger and bigger, forming bigger clusters on both sides of the vaginal lips. When untreated they itch and burn and you feel uncomfortable. So if you have the slightest sign or feeling of an STD/STI get evaluated and tested as soon as possible so you don’t learn the hard way like me.

I have black spots around my vagina. They started by the anus and now they are even on the lips of the vagina. The genital warts are not itchy or painful and I can't even feel them, but they look awful, they look like a dry skin, and I have no sexual infection. I'm now worried as to what the cause could be.

I have been single for 12 years, no sex partner all this time. I started having lots of bladder infections. Finally I saw a doctor, who did pap smear test. I then went back to him because of itching, everything protruding and the bladder burning so he gave me another test on vulva. He said I have venereal warts and now I will be having surgery.
