Hello Anon,
First off I'm confused by your post. You state you were "just" deflowered yet speak of what sems like another person earlier this summer. Is this one and the sme person? Because HPV rarely shows symptoms and can become dormant after contracted and show up weeks, months and even years lataer it is impossible to determine from whom you got HPV. Men usually show fewer symptoms than women and often do not know they have the virus unless he gets genital warts.
Eighty percent of hte population has HPV so your belief that you won't be having sex for a long time while you may feel that way at the moment probably won't be the case, unless of course this is a decision you're making versus your feeling that nobody would want to be involved with you. This isn't clear from your post. It's certainly nothing to be ashamed about. Many people and apparently you as well connect genital warts with being promiscuous. People can contract HPV being with just one person and it can be contracted w/o een having intercourse becaus it is transmitted by skin to skin contact. It can even be transmitted by someone touching an infected area on his body and then touching your genital area. Did you have an HPV test? How do you know that you do not have high risk HPV as well? This can only be determined via the HPV test and not visual inspection.
I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time wih this but you are certainly not alone. I would hold off saying anything to anybody until you have had things thoroughly checked out. If you could clear up what is a bit confusing that would be helpful also. I'm not clear if there are two people inolved here or one. Have you had a pap test done? If not you need to get that done and please be sure you get in the habit of getting copies of your results now. Were you ever informed about the HPV vaccine? You can still receive the vaccine to age twenty six and there is financial assistance from the vaccine maker. Check out Gardasil.com this can prevent the two high risk strains of HPV known to cause most cancers. It also protects against genital warts wich are caused by two strains, six and eleven. If you only have one of the two, the vaccine can protect against the other so please look into getting this. Normally it is recommended to your parents when you are about 12 but not all parents choose to have their children vaccinated which is truly unfortunate. If you can clear this up a bit I can provide more information. Meantime schedule a pap test to make sure you have no cervical abnormalities.
