So, my partner told me I gave her genital warts

Symptomless HPV? That's a thing? I want to take her with me to the doctor, but I doubt we can sync schedules and I want to go ASAP. Sadly I'm not in Tokyo so most doctors don't speak much English. I just sent her a SNS message about her ex bfs, waiting for a reply, but she is really innocent. She is such a shy person, I really don't think she's been sleeping around. It has to be me... I've... done things.
The last sentence is rather important to your original post, lol.

Her last BF was a few years ago and there was no direct contact. It seems to be me. I've never had symptoms or signs or itchiness or anything. I will call the clinic tomorrow and hope my insurance is ok. I understand the skepticism some people are showing, and I actually appreciate it, but with boots on the ground I know she really isn't one to sleep around. This has to be me, but I had no idea.
There is no way for you to100% know anyone's sexual history, except your own. So maybe cool it with the pure and innocent stuff. I don't know your gf but you seem to be putting her up on a pedestal of purity and putting people up on pedestals never ends well.

I’m lol’ing at all the “get tested” responses. Y’all ain’t ever done research. Even a cursory google search says that HPV in men does not have a FDA approved test.

It should be fairly know that HPV is an incredibly common virus and many people (yes, probably you too dear reader) have been exposed to it and didn’t develop any symptoms. Goes to show how poor sexual education really is.

Sorry OP. You seriously might’ve given it to her and that’s sorta the end of that whether or not you trust her is one thing but it’s important to keep in mind that an awful lot of men are carriers of HPV and will never know.

how do you live in Japan and not live in Tokyo and not speak Japanese? Is every day an adventure trying to communicate? or is it not that bad?

I'm going to Japan in a couple weeks and I'm a little worried about the language barrier. Tokyo > Shirakawa > Kyoto.

Good luck on your STD issue. I wouldn't just assume it's not your "pure" GF though.
Getting around Japan is fucking easy, most signs are written in English and people will fall over themselves to help you.

That's why there's a vaccine now. All the young women in my family have gotten it although I'm not sure if the cervical cancer thing is fear mongering or not. Might as well get one. I think they do it up until you're 30 or something.

Are you under 30? Then I'd say get vaccinated but then you will get mercury poisoning and become autistic according to research some imbecile on the internet.

Sorry, had to get a potshot against anti-vaxxers in there. Bunch of morons have caused a measles outbreak and probably are going to keep killing children.

Where my pro-life people at? *crickets*

Sorry, had to get a potshot in there against pro-life hypocrisy as well. I'm going to stop now.

Congrats op, you ruined a pure and innocent girl.

23? Come on man, you can do better than that. Fucking embarrassing. It's Japan too, that's like a -10 age modifier. Get someone in their 30s and it's like the 20s.

You sound like MasterShake talking about sex.

And man quit with the "so pure so innocent" shit. Having sex doesn't make one "unpure" but she's had ex-bfs and has had sex before right? So where is this "pure" stuff coming from? She's like any other person who has had sex.
I wrap my rascal, TWO TIMES, cuz I like it to be joyless and without sensation. It's a way of punishing supermodels.

Unless you get the symptoms you can't test for it. Lots of viruses can hide in the body and are very difficult to test for.

Also OP only said she said she has warts. Not if its HPV. It could very easily be molloscum.

Can’t believe this thread is OK but people get banned for defending Dead or Alive boobs. OP sounds unhinged and frankly a creepy sexpat.

I live in Japan too and if you don’t know enough Japanese to visit a doctor can you just stop being so god damn lazy? I’m so sick of meeting fellow foreigners who don’t learn any Japanese.

If you want to live like a child and make your life harder then it needs to be then go ahead. I guess.

So HPV causes warts for some people and none for others, but it is spread by skin contact with or without a condom. You could have carried it and given it to her. There’s no test to check for it if you don’t have any warts yourself.

Kinda freaked out at what appears to me to be a racialisation of a perfectly normal STD notice.

Please stop these stupid racist generalisations about Japanese women. A woman has genital warts, you have had sexual contact with her, and are therefore either her vector or a potential vector to other partners. Be responsible and do everything you can to avoid further infection. You know this is the right thing to do.

The amount of ignorance about HPV in here is astounding, particularly given the age demographic, which sits right in the center of the most likely people to have it.

How do I know if I have HPV?
There is no test to find out a person’s “HPV status.” Also, there is no approved HPV test to find HPV in the mouth or throat.
There are HPV tests that can be used to screen for cervical cancer. These tests are only recommended for screening in women aged 30 years and older. HPV tests are not recommended to screen men, adolescents, or women under the age of 30 years.
Most people with HPV do not know they are infected and never develop symptoms or health problems from it. Some people find out they have HPV when they get genital warts. Women may find out they have HPV when they get an abnormal Pap test result (during cervical cancer screening). Others may only find out once they’ve developed more serious problems from HPV, such as cancers.
How common is HPV and the health problems caused by HPV?
HPV (the virus): About 79 million Americans are currently infected with HPV. About 14 million people become newly infected each year. HPV is so common that almost every person who is sexually-active will get HPV at some time in their life if they don’t get the HPV vaccine.
Health problems related to HPV include genital warts and cervical cancer.
Genital warts: Before HPV vaccines were introduced, roughly 340,000 to 360,000 women and men were affected by genital warts caused by HPV every year.* Also, about one in 100 sexually active adults in the U.S. has genital warts at any given time.
Cervical cancer: Every year, nearly 12,000 women living in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 women die from cervical cancer—even with screening and treatment.
