Aldara in pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara in pregnancy


Avatar f tn you tried to post on someone else's post in the expert forum. you have to pay to post there. no, aldara won't cause you to not get your period. follow up with your gyn for this.
Avatar n tn I have a hard time believe this, since I have had this hard skin in my ear once before. It appeared during my pregnancy with my daughter, and went away within about 6 months of giving birth. It was gone for 5 years, and then re-appeared during my pregnancy with my son. Only this time it has not gone away. (My son is now 3 years old.) I swear it is somehow related to changes in my body during pregnancy, although the Drs don't put any weight on this bit of info.
Avatar n tn 4 weeks ago my doc prescribed a cream called Aldara to remove a wart that was in my vaginal area. My question is if both me and my boyfriend have HPV but Im the only one who had a wart can he still get a wart if we have sex. We have always had a very healthy sex life and we both share a high sex drive so please help! we have sex?
Avatar f tn Had first wart frozen off today which I found to be pretty painful and my pain tolerance is normally high. My questions are how soon after the freezing treatment can you have sex? Is pregnancy complicated with HPV? My son was born via c-section if that makes any difference. I just found out today from my primary doctor because of a wart. Although no pap test has confirmed it. I'm honestly very afraid and have no idea what to expect.
Avatar n tn I went to a dermatalogist who examined them and told me they were, in fact, genital warts. She prescribed me a cream (Aldara) which got rid of most of them after about a month. I was not in a relationship at the time and had been with a few guys. I insisted on condoms with any further partners I had, but because the warts could be felt I did not want to be touched and I avoided oral sex. The embarassment caused more emotional trauma than anything.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am in my 39th week of pregnancy, but early in my pregnancy I was firstly diagnosed with Chlamydia. (Note, I have had a normal uncomplicated pregnancy, although I DID have Chlamydia, it was cured, and was later diagnosed with HPV)... I needed two (painful) treatments of Azthromycin before I was finally cleared. I still continued to -occasionally- have a slight green/yellow discharge that sort of resembled what it would look like if I blew my nose during a cold.
Avatar n tn If spontaneous resolution does not occur, a course of Aldara will do the job. I have used Aldara during pregnancy in certain circumstances. There have not been any reported pregnancy problems. Very rarely, surgical resection is required for massively enlarged warts.
Avatar n tn How safe is Aldara? My 22 month old has molluscum right under her left eye. Dr. ordered Aldara.
Avatar f tn A friend of mine has had this but she thought it was just a skin tag when she got pregnant turns out it was a wart but it was not a threat to pregnancy nor did they treat it in any way. I would contact your doctor and ask why they have you on Aldara , I have never heard of HPV causing yeast infections. In case you were not aware - HPV is in 80% of woman - 80% can you believe it is that common?
Avatar m tn If this is not possible, only in your case (and not your wife's) you could treat them yourself with either Warticon (podophyllotoxin) or Aldara (Imiquimod). However in the case of your wife, these are contraindicated during pregnancy. Genital warts may rapidly enlarge during pregnancy, probably as a result of altered immune system or increased oestrogen/progesterone, but they regress after delivery often with complete resolution without any treatment.
Avatar n tn None even brought up imiquimod which I learned about online and feel that it might be best in my situation. It seems they prescribe whatever they are familiar with. Also a transmission question. Would my partner get the condyloma exactly where my affected skin touched theres? or could it pop up anywhere on them once they have contracted it? Also does my sperm carry the hpv virus? or is it strictly from skin to skin contact?
Avatar f tn Following a LEEP procedure and Aldara in 2004, I have been symptom free to date. I understand that my virus is most likely dormant. My partner and I have not had vaginal sex...but brief genital contact(tip of penis did touch outside of vagina with mucosal secretions and oral sex (once). Did I expose him to HPV? Could that have passed it on to him? HPV really took a toil on me emotionally. So I truly appreciate a forum where I can ask a question.
Avatar f tn Hi, would like to know how effective is podopyllum resin 20% in treating Ano-genital warts
Avatar n tn Podophyllin and podofilox should not be used during pregnancy, as they are absorbed by the skin and could cause birth defects in the fetus. 5-fluorouracil cream should not be used while trying to become pregnant or if the person taking the medication could be pregnant. Small warts can be removed by freezing (cryosurgery), burning (electrocautery), or laser treatment. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn My wife just had a baby about 3 weeks ago. About 6 months along in the pregnancy, she noticed some small bumps near the crease of her where her thigh meets the groin, close to her rear end. During her visit to the midwife ( we are military and the MW's are the ones we saw) said it was HPV. The next one we said said it was molluscom and that it would go away. The first that diagnosed it as HPV prescribed aldara, which not only did not work, but caused them to slightly increase in size.
4437866 tn?1388123224 They started off small at the beggining of my pregnancy but have since multiplied and gotten huge. I know its normal to happen during pregnancy but my doctor will not remove them til the baby is born the 4th of july. They will be horrible by then! I already feel ugly and dirty about it to the point I cry and won't let my hubby see me naked. I can't get my area waxed so now I feel like a neanderthal ( wrong spelling sorry)...
Avatar f tn I treated the warts with Aldara and they disappeared in less than a month. I performed regular self exams for the first couple of years, but have not recently. For the first two years, I informed my partners of my previous condition. However, I chose not to tell my current boyfriend, as it has been 3 years and my understanding from my doctors and this forum is that I needn't worry about being contagious. After choosing not to tell my partner, I grew worried and thoroughly checked myself.
Avatar m tn S/he is correct that pregnancy often results in recurrent warts, but stress probably has no effect. Whether HPV infected people invariably "carry the virus forever" is a matter of scientific debate. In the large majority of cases, the infection clears up to a point that it cannot be detected, even with the most sophisticated tests, cannot be transmitted, and never reappears in visible form.
Avatar f tn ) However, I have had a dormant strain of HPV pop up in the form of genital warts, due to cell changes from the pregnancy (which I found is very common). I had my first treatment of TCA today. Everything is just looking a bit white down there, but my question is...Do the warts just flake away? When is it safe to have intercourse with my husband? (The warts are not near my vaginal opening.) I suppose I should have asked my doc! Lol!
Avatar f tn Is there any possible way to get rid of this faster. I have one on my shaft, which probably got there from the ones in my pubic hair area. They first showed in my pubic hair area. Any ideas??? plz help.
Avatar n tn Depending on the size and location of the wart, and other factors, a doctor will offer one of several ways to treat them. * Imiquimod (Aldara) a topical immune response cream, applied to the affected area * A 20% podophyllin anti-mitotic solution, applied to the affected area and later washed off * A 0.
Avatar f tn Got condyloma from partner year 2000, we both got them burnt. They reappeared, I used Aldara my partner got them burned again. I have been clean from warts for 3 years but my partner (now my husband) seems to have a small wart again. I am sick and tired of fighting against condyloma because it keeps winning. We want to have a baby. Does anyone know how it may affect my pregnancy? Does the baby get infected?
Avatar n tn So I went back to Gyn had to see covering Dr (mine was on vacation ) She pretty much read chart gave me aldara and did pap with hpv (2 wks later results are negative ) so I used aldara for about 2 wks no problems or issues ..
Avatar n tn My fiance was diagnosed with HPV (warts) recently after nearly three years of ignoring a bump that had increased to about 5 and he is treating it with Aldara. I had told him when we first mentioned it (within a few months of us seeing eachother and before we slept together) to get it checked out and I was foolish enough to think he had and it was all clear... so it is what it is. About after we started seeing eachother I went in for a routine PAP and there was nothing abnormal found.
Avatar f tn 2) As I said, the 2 year duration makes me skeptical it's a wart. But in any case, it will have no impact on safe pregnancy, labor, delivery, or breast feeding. Even genital HPV infections rarely have such effects. Bottom line: I urge you to discuss the situation again with the oral surgeon, telling him or her what I said about the infrequency of oral warts and rarity of such prolonged warts. If s/he recommends a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis, I recommend you do it.
Avatar f tn I've had both out breaks and to be honest they felt pretty similar in my case. Herpes was more painful tho. I would maybe get a second opinion and see what they say. I hope you feel better soon...
Avatar n tn Most children are born healthy to women with a history of genital warts. Because of hormone changes in the body during pregnancy, warts can grow in size and number, bleed, or, in extremely rare cases, make delivery harder. Very rarely, babies exposed to the wart-types of HPV during birth may develop growths in the throat. This so seldom happens, however, that women with genital warts do not typically need to have a cesarean-section delivery unless warts are blocking the birth canal.
Avatar f tn Of course you can judge this much better than I can. 1) The response to Aldara typicaly takes 4-6 weeks. In 30% of cases, it doesn't work completely and additional treatment methods are necessary. 2) You should continue your normal sex life with your husband; there is no need to stop sex. The horse is well out of the barn: it takes a year or more for warts to show up, once the HPV is acquired or it reactivates. He has been repeatedly exposed to your HPV infection for at least that long.
Avatar m tn So, to make a long story short about 2 weeks ago i recieved protected oral with an escort. About a week ago i started feeling a mild discomfort in my urethra before and after urinating and also the urge to urintate is contstantly there but when i do urinate it is a normal stream. What STD's am i at risk for?
Avatar m tn Since the doc said the hpv was really hard to detect in her but its there what does this mean? is this in the early stages? or can it be going away? thanks for all your help.
