I just read a post that states a person with genital warts
should not shave. I for one can not go a week with out shaving let
alone not shaving at all. Is there anything I can do, to avoid
spreading any further warts when shaving, seeing that I go to my
GYN almost 2-3 times a month and would feel really, really embarrassed
to be saved.

try trimming. Shaving spreads them, its not an issue of rinsing off the razor every few seconds either. Its completely up to you, if you go for a while without shaving, i bet you will notice a difference in the speed at which the warts appear and develop. Maybe you wouldn't have to visit your gyno so often if you didn't shave.

If it's a matter of wanting to look good for your guy, he should just be nderstanding and not trip if you don't shave for a while. The gynecologist could care less if you are shaved or not, so don't even consider that. If it's just you and your vagina, then let it go for a while. Wait until you heal and then shave. :)

Thank you maggie and niffer82. I will try to follow what the both of you have advised.

You shouldn't shave the whole area, but you can shave your bikini line if they aren't in that area. I've been diagnosed for 4 months and haven't had any spreading, and have continued to shave since diagnosed.

I use an electric beard trimmer and I havn't had a problem...I know how you feel. Just because I have the virus doesn't mean that I can't still feel sexy....
