hello doctor 

would you please diagnose if this is HPV or not?

Welcome back to the Forum.  There is no description of a lesion, nor the circumstances of possible exposure here.  My sense is that you may be trying to post a picture.  If so, I should warn you that viewing pictures on line is often very difficult.  EWH

Perhaps you need to provide a link to whatever picture you have - others have succeeded in doing this is the past although we discourage it.  As I say this, I must remind you that interpretation of pictures for STI diagnosis is notoriously unreliable. 

Even if you succeed in posting a picture, I would encourage you to also describe it, its time course, and your exposure history.  EWH

Well I can’t add a link to the photo because the photo is not on the internet, it’s on my mobile phone. All other website have the option to upload the picture. So please send me any emails address to send you the picture with it as this inquiry going to fail without you seeing the picture to diagnose,  no physical symptoms are present except for sometimes I feel discomfort during sex.


Please help me send you the picture

I am sorry, we do not share our e-mail addresses with clients.  You'll need to find a way to post your picture or at least do a better job of describing it and why you think it may be a wart.  EWH

Thanks for your efforts to post the pictures.  As I feared, the finding are non-specific.  How long have they been present?


May women have frondlike papillary lesions which are not HPV although HPV can mimic such lesions.  You need to have a test.  I would not treat these lesions at this time until I was sure they are HPV.  EWH

Not sure how long have they been present as I never focused on it.. 

I have made the Pap smear test 

Is it a 50/50 chance that it maybe HPV vs VESTIBULAR PAPILLOMATOSIS ?

I would say vestibular papillomatosis is more likely than HPV.  EWH
