I would like to ask something. When I had a check up because I was constipated for a few days, my doctor talked to me and told me that he saw warts in my anal area and he said that they are caused by a sexually transmitted disease. My bowel problem is not cured but my concern now is my anal warts. Is that a sign of HIV or not? Please I need your response.




Thank you for your email.

HPV or human papillomavirus is the cause of your anal warts and like what your doctor has told you, it is a sexually transmitted disease. It is a different virus from HIV however, infectious disease doctors, once they see anal warts would recommend a person to take the HIV and other STD tests too.

If I am in your position, it is best to take the HIV and other STD tests to be sure. Also see a doctor again to have those anal warts removed. 

I hope I was able to answer your concerns. Feel free to email me again if you have other questions.

Stay healthy,

NO PLHIV is alone with his or her struggle with HIV!"
