Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Hpv wart?


About 2.5 years ago I was diagnosed with hpv- the wart kind, and I had a procedure and then they did tests and said I was all fine and the hpv went away. I haven't had sex since then and I haven't been to the doctor in almost a year. I have attached a photo to see if this is a hpv wart in the opening of my vagina. I can't tell by looking at pictures online. I would like to think my vagina looks normal but I have a feeling it's not.
Thank you,


From this image, I don't see anything reminiscent of genital warts. The vaginal entrance appears normal and healthy. There is no visible sign of color changes or noticeable growths that I can see. If this concerns you, then please consult with your primary care provider or OBGYN specialist. Remember to have a pap smear performed every 3 years to check for cervical cancer risk and HPV, among other things, and you should be fine! Let me know if you have follow up.
