A couple months ago my wife and I found out we were going to have a baby. We're both very excited, but something has come up after her first pregnancy pap. It came back abnormal. This is the first time this has happened. We've been married two years and I've always made it a point to be involved in all her doctors appointments and we've never had this come up before. They did an exam (which unfortunately I wasn't there for, I'm currently gone on business) and showed her a "leaf" shaped white marking on her cervix that the nurse said was Genital Warts. I know this is common in about 75% of the US, but it still concerns both of us. I've never shown signs of any kind of STD and neither has she. I would have thought something like this would have shown up long before now. Is it really possible that she has Genital Warts? I'm not just concerned for us, but also for the impending birth of our child.

  • Well, I would not take what a "nurse" said too seriously. I would advise your wife to talk to a doctor and look at the pap results. Until they do a biospy, you won't know for sure if it is warts, but if she has it, you have it, too. Skin tabs can be mistaken for warts, too. I don't know if it will be resolved until after the baby arrives. These are questions for the doctor. It's hard to say who had the warts first. I don't think most men are aware that they have them.
