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. :)

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

was getting tiny bumbs.. stupid me!
