Male organ warts are not unusual, but most men are understandably reluctant to talk about them. Knowing how others deal with this unpleasant problem can help – one man talks about his experience.
Male Organ Warts – What It’s Like to Have Them and How to Cope
By John Dugan
Male organ warts are a painful and embarrassing problem, and they can be notoriously challenging to deal with. While they are not life-threatening, they can make it extremely difficult to have a normal intimate life, and the right approach to male organ care is essential. Unfortunately, most men who have experienced this problem are not about to discuss it with their friends and neighbors, so it can be hard for men with newly discovered warts to know what to do next – aside from the obvious visit to the doctor.
For men like this, it can be reassuring to hear from someone who has had a similar experience. A wart sufferer who we will call Adrian tells his story.
Adrian became intimately active at a young age, and throughout his life, he was lucky with the ladies. As a result, he had many different partners, and he wasn't always careful about using protection.
"I always considered myself pretty healthy and pretty lucky, so especially when I had been with a girl for a long time, I'd start to skip the wrappers," he says. "Everything was fine for a while, but after we broke up and I started dating someone new, I noticed that I had a bunch of warts on my male organ."
The warts came as a surprise to Adrian, because his new girlfriend had assured him that she had a clean bill of health, and he had not seen anything out of the ordinary.
Before he even saw a doctor about the problem, Adrian turned to the Internet to find out whether his suspicions about the bumps were correct.
"They looked like tiny, flesh-colored bites all along the base of my male organ," he says. "They didn't hurt or bleed or anything, but they were sure ugly. And I had warts on my hands before, so I knew what they were as soon as I saw them."
Many men in Adrian’s situation are embarrassed about the idea of seeing a doctor and attempt to treat their warts at home with DIY techniques such as:
"I didn't want to try anything stupid like that," Adrian explains "I’m not a big fan of pain, especially down there, and I was afraid of doing the wrong thing. I figured that a doctor could give me a good diagnosis and a treatment that wouldn't be so risky or painful. I made an appointment right away."
At his appointment, Adrian's doctor told him that the warts were probably caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), but that he could go through a biopsy in order to be sure. He chose to proceed with treatment as though he had HPV.
"I had several treatments with liquid nitrogen, and while it wasn't exactly comfortable, it didn't hurt as much as I expected it to," he says. "I also had a cream I applied at night to deal with the bumps that were left behind."
The treatments went on for several weeks, he says, and Adrian was encouraged to refrain from intimacy during that time. "I think that was the hardest part!" he says.
Now that Adrian is bump-free, he is free to return to his old habits. But he's changed many things about his life. First of all, because he has had the warts, he is likely still a carrier for the virus, and chances are good that he could pass the condition on to another partner.
To avoid this issue, he says, "I always talk about health issues with my partners, for starters. I tell them about what happened to me in the past, and I ask about their health status. I don't want to go through this again or do it to someone else, so I'm just more careful. And I always, always, always wear protection."
Adding a male organ health crème could also be helpful for health-conscious men like Adrian. These products (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can keep male skin soft and smooth, so it can perform with ease and deliver intense pleasure, while the vitamins and minerals nourish vital tissues and slow down the signs of aging. A crème like this isn't a treatment for warts, and it can't prevent them but it could be a perfect compliment to a healthy lifestyle for any man.
