Thanks for your question.
Genital warts are caused by the HPV virus.
This is not treatable.
But the body gradually eliminates the virus over time.
If you never had any break out in last 15 years, it is very unlikely you have the virus in your body.
This can be checked by checking the penile urethra swabs for HPV virus.
What about the diminished amount of sperm and the globules mixed in
that is not related to the genital warts.
THis can be due to the testosterone deficiency.
are there other std's that generate warts?
get your testosterone level checked.
also prostate problem can cause this.
Enlarged prostate should be checked out also.
is there anyway to have safe sex with the hpv virus?
yes, use condoms.
and if you test negative for HPV virus, then unprotected sex is also ok.
what type of doctor should I see?
you can see your family doctor.
Or you can see a specialist called urologist.
do many men my age suffer from low testosterone?
yes this is common and often overlooked.
would treatment increase the amount of sperm produced?
and get rid of the globules?
also drink plenty of fluids.
avoid smoking and drink minimally.
how could i have developed the wart and not be infected?
natural supplements like Ashwagandha will also help.
you got infected and that showed up as warts.
what type of test should i ask the doctor to perform?
ask for urethra swab to look for HPV.
then serum free testosterone level.
Can the family doctor do this or should I go straight to a urologist?
the family doctor can do this.
ok, i haven't had any break outs since the one wart 15 years ago. Is it likely that I am no longer infected?
yes likely you are clear
I'm still going to go and get checked
yes definitely for your good.
one last thing. are there any other std tests you would recommend that I should have performed?
gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV also should be checked.
but without any symptoms, these are very unlikely.
one thing, i do get some itching at the base of my penis
then this is not concderning.
this can be from sweating.
ok. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed but I'm going to make an appointment tomorrow. How long does it usually take to get the results back after the tests?
within 3-4 days
That's all? Great!
