I had no idea. I thought it was simply a mole, but I knew it was new. I found out that I had genital warts and I was 2 months pregnant when I found out. I'm told that my hormones are causing the warts to grow faster than normal, and that they will grow even more if I mess with them. I can't get rid of them until after the baby is born. I'm scared that they are going to infect my birth canal.

I first got genital warts when I was 19 they spread on my vaginal opening. The doctor suggested that I didn't need laser treatment but either way they went ahead with it. The warts disappeared completely! One appeared again after some months and my mom got me treatment from some doctor though he made it clear that they might come back again so my mom has to pray they don't. Well I took the treatment and they started fading on their own and I haven't had them for years now.
