I'm afraid that I have contracted one of these. I have had small white bumps occasionally and when I felt 'down there' It was bumpy, but I don't know if it is the natural ridges or something more serious. My husband has been my only partner. And he swears he has never been with anyone that would have exposed him. But I know it can spread without signs. I have a three month old baby, wouldn't my doctor had said something during my exams if I had them? I'm really scared. Please help me!Answer Question

Normally you will find that genital warts/HPV are in small clusters and they can be white looking. Herpes are more like blisters and can be anywhere from the base of your spine to your vagina/rectal area.
The incubation period for Herpes (meaning from the time you contract it to the time it shows) is apporx. 2-12 days. Normally less than a week but can be as long as 26 days.
The incubation period for HPV (genital warts) is both long and variable. It may be anywhere from a few weeks to more than 1 year.
