Being 15 and Having HPV. - - (13 ) comments.
Being 15 i always associated STD's and STI with older people, the only thing i associated with unprotected sex was pregnancy. But i learnt my lesson i was in school when my close friend told me how she and another friend went to the walk in center because she had these small bumps on her vagina a month prior to this i noticed 2 small bumps on my vigina i scratched them off. They bled. And went.
All gone i though the thought of genital warts crossed my mind but it being me it was to good to be true. So my friend told me she got a creme for it and it was nothing to worry about so me supposedly having the same thing as her (Bacterial vaginosis) i thought i would pop down to my doc's and it will go because its easy to get an emergency app and my doc's was at the bottom of my road i kept putting it off.
They eventually got worse and i decided to go in all the while the thought of gw grew. so i went in and i had a trainee doc seeing me she examined me and assumed that it was a fungal infection she gave me a creme and i used it it stank and had little effect, i slowly stop ussing it and just tried to ignore the problem. From the off set i was still having sex from the two small bumps, which i know now i should have stopped.
So the small bumps about 6 max spread i was mortified but still I left it i am 15 and didnt expect anything bad after all. Till my same friend who had BV and i was walking to school and she just told me that she had chlamydia i was in shock be cause she had only had sex with one person. all i could say was i had a mouth to catch flies. And the suddenly it all kicked in her bumps my bumps she has chlamydia WHAT DO I HAVE!!!!! the hole day it ran through my mind i was so scared and in shock that i might have chlamydia little did i know So after school we went to the walk in center and she took her pill to get rid of it. My app was next i went in told the back ground long story she diagnosed me with gw i cried straight away at the moment i just wanted to die. 2years earlier i tried to commit suicide and i felt like i was having a relaps id have rather have been dead to be honest. i consider my self very mature and every one i know says the same thing i can talk to older people on a level where its so shocking that im 15 i have ambition and drive and im very academically intelligent. The only down fall is i am curious and that lead to me having sex and becoming to experienced for my own good.
So she rushed me to an emergency app at my local GUM clinic and i got my first treatment i have many piercing my tongue, belly, 11 in my ears,nipples, face pierced so pain is my friend so the freezing was not that bad towards the end it was very sore but my determination to get rid of them made me just take the pain i thought it was only fair in punishment infact i was getting less of a punishment. i put my cloths on and as i was dressing the doc told me i would have to come in for following treatment my heart sunk the she explain i would have the virus for 2years my heart literally stopped. me this could be happening i really wanted to die some one shot me i thought better yet just gimme the gun. she gave me a leaflet and i went home that night i found it hard to cry eventually i broke down numerous of time. In school and at home, all my teachers noticed it but i just ignored it.
I was with my friend and looked up gw literally saw Ďyou will gw foreverí my heart drooped and I wanted to cry I had not been told this I was scared I really didnít understand on the net it said gw was an STI and STI every thing was a blur nothing had been really explain and every time I got an answer there was some thing to contradict it. I called a help line and they explain with good lifestyle and healthy eating your immune system can fight the virus with in 2 years to full rid it but the virus is still lying dormant in your system only your body learns to deal it and doesnít fight it. I was constantly being told things like 80% of people get it in their life but to be honest I didnít care about no one else it was me I cared about and I was so shock it was so fast I literally didnít have time to react and I know many ca relate to this.
The thing that made it worse was because of the freezing my vagina felt sore which reminded me constantly it was on my mind all day for about 5 days till i slowly started relaxing as they began to heal. the sore literally did not fall of which i thought they would it was as it something ate at the skin it became raw and pink but to me they looked better and i felt better.
i planned with the doc to come in the next week for the next treatment but i fell on my period that week and left it, the following week it snowed and was very very heavy so i didnt bother.
So hear i am waiting for monday to come so i can go back, it been a short time but they have improved sooooooooo much i feel normal down stairs and i think about it but its easier to deal with.
