So since I was diagnosed with HPV I have been freaking out. Last night I was in the shower rehearsing how I am going to tell the guy I just starting seeing that I was diagnosed with genital warts. Then suddenly my gums on one side of my mouth hurt for a split second and then went completely numb. This prompted me to check my gums in the mirror. I have always had problems with my gums, at least once a year they get red and swollen, and no matter how hard I brush and floss they seem to always flare up at some point. I did noticed tiny little pumps in clusters on my upper gums and the whole area is red. Is it possible I have developed warts there? I googled warts on gums and didn't get anything. I only saw them on lips, check, and tounge. I'm going to schedule a dentist appointment but I'm not sure he will even know if they are or not. I don't have health insurance and as it is I spent $350 on Aldara $250 at the gyno and then another $300 this Thursday to get them burned off.
What's really freaking me out is that I was diagnosed the same week I started seeing this guy, and I haven't told him yet. I have taken every precaution and not slept with him because I don't want to spread it. But if it turns out I have it in my mouth we have already kissed and I've went down on him which means I've already spread it to him. Help! If anyone has any information if it can even infect your gums or am I just paraniod?
