I was recently diagniosed with hpv. i went through the colposcope and biospy and i cried like a baby. i didn't understand what hpv was and the docs really didn't explain it properly. i just wanted to die. but then i hopped on this website and did some research. i started exercising more, taking vitamins (which i didn't care to do before) and i'm trying to quit smoking. that will be the hardest part! so when i went back for my leep procedure, i was not upset. i knew was going on. basically, i want to thank you guys. i probably would have cried again if i didn't know tons of people have it and it really not a big deal! it just makes you a more cautious, heathly person. everyone keep your head up...it's not the end of the world

I had the same feelings as you. I haven't yet gone to get treatment. I'm at school right now and talking with one of my professor I had last year. She's a nurse and one of the only people I think I feel comfortable telling about this. She's going to help me through this and I love you guys here for helping me with my questions too. This is an awesome site and you all are the best part about it!!! :O)

kp - just go to a doctor OK? Because the warts are more likely to respond to treatment quickly when you go soon.

This site has helped me a lot too. At first i thought my world was ending. It was horrible... but after reading everything and hearing what other people have to say i got things more in perspective. It is still really hard for me to deal wtih - my boyfriend (who gave it to me) isnt supportive at all... but I know I will get better eventually and Im not the only one going through this. Good luck to you guys!
