Doc said it doesn't effect baby in any way but on my last appoitment he noticed a growth similar to wards(HPV) So he said my pragnancy probably triggered the virus.... how can this be???

  • HPV can show up from hormones. Like when your hormones are in an uproar HPVs symptoms can surface. Try not to fret, like 80% of women have HPV in their system. Technically planters warts and the warts you get on your hands are a form of HPV, so a doctor told me when I had my planters warts treated. As far as the genital warts, they go away lots of times after pregnancy when your hormones level back out. I read that somewhere.....look up info on some good accredited medical sites and you can learn a lot. You can have them treated after pregnancy if they are bad enough, my friend did and they didn't come back for her.
