Having gone a few weeks noticing a ???twinge??? on my penis, I went to the doctors yesterday to have a wart frozen off.
Being fairly ignorant and inexperienced sexually, and never thinking I???d be ???one of those people??? that gets an STI, it came as a bit of a shock that I am now carrying the HPV virus.
Me and my current partner have been having unprotected sex and she uses birth control. We both got screened early on for STD???s and came out clear. I know that for men (not sure for woman?) there is no specific test for HPV, only that if a breakout occurs it confirms you have it.
There is no anger or resentment between me and my partner. Either I unknowingly am carrying the virus that happened to breakout at this time, or she passed it onto me. Thinking purely selfishly, I???ve had 2 sexual partners prior to her, both using condoms and I???m aware her sexual history contains more unprotected sex. I trust that she genuinely didn???t know, and that she has never had a breakout, and I was actively involved in the decision to have unprotected sex so it???s irrelevant.
The web says it???s incredibly common, around 50% of sexually active adults. Some unknowingly carry it and never have symptoms in a lifetime. Some have a single or couple of breakouts for it never to return again. The immune system can clear it apparently, but with no test you have no idea to be sure. That seems to be the crux of the mind trip I???m experiencing, you just have no idea if it???s gone.
- How common is it amongst paleo hackers?
- How has it affected your sex life?
- How would those without it feel if a prospective sexual partner has it?
- What level of disclosure do people generally feel comfortable with?
- Is there anything, paleo or otherwise that can assist the body in preventing further outbreaks and/or clearing the virus?
Just hoping for a dose of realism on this one.

To my knowledge, there are many strains of HPV, but only a couple that cause genital warts and cervical cancer. The virus can also take a decade until symptoms start to show. For all you know, she could have gotten it from a toilet seat or something.
Have you both been tested to see which strain you have? She should be screened every few years for cervical cancer, along with her regular pap smears. It's a slow-acting cancer, but early detection can save a life. New guidelines for paps and cervical cancer tests are once every three years, instead of the previous annual checkup which can cause issues down the road if done too frequently.

I'm not paleo, but I decided to answer because of your story that is pretty much similar to mine. I believe I'm have it although I haven't made tests. I have two warts on my penis that appeared one year ago. Previously, they appeared 3 or 4 year ago for the first time, and I treated them with liquid nitrogen.
I'm 29, male and have a girlfriend for about 8 years. I had two sex partners in between. I don't know about her. And she does not seems to have symptoms of this.
Obviously, she knows the warts and is currently on hiking. I she hadn't had sex with anyone, this is her perfect oppt. for her revenge:)
I don't know how to approach her after thinking deeply in this when she's currently not here.
I don't know even how to ask her to be mi wife, as this is not just a health issue, but a psychological one.
What’ll do for myself?
If the doctor confirms me 100% it’s kind of HPV, I’ll speak with her. I will quit cigarettes, (won’t quite weed), do more sport, and try to use cannabis oil this time to see the effects. Shortly, I’ll try to live good life without stress.
Interesting reading in which I found myself and shared my story.

I don't have it that I'm aware of though fortunately or unfortunately I have not had many partners in my past and the only none of my partners had a complicated past either. In fact, I've never had a wart at all anywhere or a fever bluster for that matter.
Before going paleo, I did get ulcers in my mouth like clockwork every month. I made sure not to put my mouth anywhere delicate when I had one. I'm pretty sure I gave that to my then husband because he would get the mouth ulcers in similar spots in his mouth. I had a friend in highschool who got those ulcers on her hoohah after engaging in some fun activity with her boyfriend who happened to have either a mouth ulcer or fever blister.
I wonder for those with herpes that have give paleo, if their outbreaks no longer occur. I would be willing to bet that's the case.

everyone and their mother has warts...as far as STIs go it's probably the one to choose if you are going to get one. Yes your immune system does clear individual warts as they come about, but it may take months or a year or two.
As you said, though, it's more likely that a sexually active person has warts than doesn't...so perhaps give them names and such and become friends.
