Hmm Is there anyone who know's what I'm talking about?


I understand that a lot of people may choose to ignore that part of thier profile, infact I'm sure there's plenty of people who even ignore the fact, or are ignorant, to the fact that HPV can be spreed after the warts and everything else goes away, and therefore; dont tell anyone that they have HPV. But I today is the start of my little experiment to see if there are actually any other peopel out there who know how I feel. If not then I guess some how I make up the 10 to 30% of the sexually active population, and the 5 billion sexually active people, besides myself, make up the other 70 to 90 % of the sexually active people.

Please don't think I'm angry at the world. I'm not, I love life, I've learned to look on hard time's as nothing more than an oportunity for things to get better.

If you think you're down as low as possible, either
A. your not, things could be worse, stop crying about it.
B. You are as low as possible, things can only get better, so smile.

Enough babble for today. Hope to hear from someone.

Since none of the other 27 people who viewed this blog is leaving a comment. I will.

What your blog says took a lot of guts to say.
Like you said, I'm sure there are many ignorant people when it comes to safe sex. And being honest with a partner.

I'm all for being honest with a partner and using safe sex.
Safe, Sane & Consentual

But thanks for bringing this to our attention once again.
That HPV is a virus that does continue to live in the body.

I've got a friend who was never sexually active with his women. (He was very religious and had high values.) And so the subject never came up of her having HPV. (Since it was also a long distance relationship.) But when marriage was proposed by him. That was the end of the relationship. Broke his heart. (ok till the next women came along, and now he's happily dating.)

So being honest can save a lot of heartbreak.

Thank again for bringing this to the attionion of people.
That they need to be honest with their partners.

Thank you for your comment Blush2005. I appreciate your response. Sad to say Honesty is the best polisy... yet I can't help but wonder how many people are out there knowing what they have, but not telling anyone. Anyway Glad to hear your friend is moving on, and on the other had I know how his ex feels too.

I'd love to hear from a few more people, but if not it's not the end of my world.

Actually the statistics are even higher, and HPV is also greatly debated between medical professionals as to how and when it is spread. From the research I have read & been presented with, you can not spread the virus without the virus present, unlike HSV, HPV does not transfer throught "shedding".

Taken from, "http://AdultFriendFinder.com" :The truth is, anyone who has had sex with 4 people in their life has an 80% chance of having contracted HPV! That’s FOUR people. How many of your friends have slept with four people? How many of your ex’s? In fact, of people ages 15 to 45, only 1 in 4 has NOT had HPV. That means that 3 out of 4 people you’re likely to see on the street HAVE IT, JUST LIKE YOU!

Only 1-2% of people with low-risk and 3-5% of those with high-risk HPV ever get diagnosed. Why do you think this is? Because the other 95% have good immune systems so they never show signs. So it is quite likely that you will never develop symptoms if you are healthy - but you will still become a carrier.

The longer a person goes without having symptoms of HPV, the more likely the chance that their immune system will repress the virus. Eventually, the virus is reduced to such a small load in most people that it becomes inactive. At this point in time, it is unlikely that a person would be contagious. Therefore, if you are thinking of having sex with someone who had HPV a long time ago but hasn't had any symptoms for quite some time, it is less likely that you will be infected. However, there is never a 100% guarantee.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

You should be commended for being straight forward, if more people would be then HPV would stop being the NUMBER 1 sexually transmitted disease today.

I should clarify my statement of, "unlike HSV, HPV does not transfer through "shedding"."

The statement was based on the actual sores/leasions, not the active. Most men are cariers without ever showing symptoms. However, like the other information provided, "active" versus "inactive" virus... there is a lot of information out there.

You have courage and integrity... I imagine that those two character traits far outweigh any doubts good potential mates might have about dating you. Kudos for your strong character.

Did you know that most people who have HSV/HPV never show signs of symptoms??? And when you go in for your yearly exam.....YOU MUST ASK for the STD testing?????? Most people think they are being tested for these when giving blood. But you must be ASKED TO BE TESTED FOR STDs. I really liked your profile...you showed alot of spunk and guts to come out. Their are alot on here, that have no idea if they have ANY STDS at all. And pass it to unsuspecting partners, all in the name of sex. Don't get me wrong, I like sex..but wishing for more honesty out of partners.......
