    Hello, I am 24 years old and believe I have gential warts. I have found a couple odd bumps and have researched the hell outta HPV and GW so I just had a PAP done but havent recieved the results yet. Im so scared and sick with myself. I was cheated on and dumped 6 months ago by my 2 and a half year boyfriend...I was crushed and then I was stupid and slept with a guy I had graduated with in high school thinking I knew him. I clearly didnt and dont but others did and didnt tell me. Im mad and sad and scared and so parents taught me so much better...I feel like failure, I feel ruined....the thing is too is that this class mate is now in australia NOT responding to my questions about him being infected with shaking writing this....its like a bad dream thats for real and im not waking up from....I know this could be so much worse and thank god it isnt...for now anyways. I just needed to tell someone cuz im freaking scared and because im to ashamed to tell my mom or my best friend, both who I tell everything to. I apologize if venting isnt what this forum is for I just needed to do this....thanks.

    Why don't you wait for your test results before you beat yourself up so badly about all of this?

    Many people have genital warts; if you end up being one of these you most certainly aren't "ruined" in any sense of the word.
