Anogenital Warts Advice

Often, people who have contracted anogenital warts are embarrassed and don’t feel like there is anyone to turn to. However, this is not the case as there are a number of confidential places you can visit for free advice, testing and treatment.

Firstly, the NHS have set up a number of sexual health clinics across the United Kingdom that are free and confidential for you to use. You can either make an appointment or drop into the drop in clinics and they will give you advice on your situation and answer any questions you may have. They will also test you for any sexually transmitted infections and provide you with a treatment plan. This is all free of charge and completely anonymous, as they will not pass the information onto your local GP unless you say that they can. GUM clinics also offer all of these services. You can also visit your local GP as they will be able to diagnose the problem and set you up with some treatment. However, there may be a prescription charge if you go to your local GP for your treatment.

There are a number of sexual health websites that can give you advice and help you decide what to do about your condition. These include the NHS website, the FPA and the Brookes helpline. There is also a sexual health helpline which you can ring which can be found on the NHS website. You can ring and speak to any of the advisors without even giving them your name. The more information and advice you can get about anogenital warts, the easier it is to get treated.

There are also a number of support forums on the Internet for people with anogenital warts. The infection can lower self esteem and these forums are designed so that you can talk to other people anonymously about your condition and feel better that there are other people out there that are suffering with the same infection. You will be surprised at just how helpful these forums can be and they can build self-confidence as well as get advice on treatments. However, make sure that you always visit a professional to get the right treatment.
