Aldara pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara pregnancy


Avatar f tn Is there any link to aldara stopping your menstral cycle? Just used stopped using it and haven't had my cycle since I used it. Since July 2 I haven't had any menstration. My boyfriend has a vasectomy (14 years). I have taken like 5 pregnancy tests (all negative) and I'm looking at the calender and its been 9 weeks since any kind of flow. I haven't used it in 2 weeks. Im not on the pill, dont have any STIs (neither of us - tests came back).
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 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 and they just appeared since my second pregnancy and im worried that my baby will be affected somehow with warts. why now why this pregnancy im worried plus i saw on TLC where that guy was half man half tree cause of warts.
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 I just got told yesterday that I have HPV. I got put on Aldara. I used it for the first time last night. I have had serveral yeast infections while I have been pregnant. Now I have irration on the outside of my womanhood! It feels like a yeast infection but now having HPV I am more worried it's related to that. How can I tell the difference?! Also, when I apply Aldara can I not go to the bathroom. I am pregnant and I pee like crazy! Do I have to reapply it after I go to the bathroom?!
Avatar f tn I'm now concerned as all internet sites indicated them to just ben skin tags which occur after pregnancy....which I have not been? Confused!!!
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 After contracted the warts can show up anywhere. Skin to skin contact is how this is contracted. Regarding Pregnancy you should speak to your doctor about this . How long have you had this?
Avatar f 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 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 n tn There is no way to predict whether they will grow or disappear. -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 0.5% podofilox solution, applied to the affected area but not to be washed off -Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Any of these can be applied to the affected areas.
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 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.
Avatar f tn So, I am 6 months pregnant, and having a healthy pregnancy :) 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 m tn Her doctor told her she can treat the warts, but that things like stress, pregnancy and illnesses can make them come back. Her doctor also told her she probably got the infection from me as men don't have symptoms, but can carry the virus forever and that the warts on her anus are probably from contact with my scrotum I've been looking through this site and have noticed that this information does not seem to be accurate. I haven't cheated on her and we've been dating for about 2 years.
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 Adverse effects include pain, irritation, soreness, and mild scarring. Repeated treatments are necessary. Imiquimod 5% (Aldara), an immune response modifier, stimulates production of interferon-alfa and other proinflammatory cytokines, inducing a tissue reaction known to be associated with viral clearance from the skin. Apply 3 times per week for up to 16 weeks or nightly for 4 weeks. Clearing can take up to 3 months. Tretinoin (Retin-A) 0.1% cream can be applied to lesions twice daily.
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 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 5 years ago I was diagnosed with genital warts in the perineum area and they were removed by freezing and before that treated with aldara. They never came back. I decided not yet to have the oral wart removed because I do not want to undergo surgery in that location. I have two questions: 1. I recently gave my boyfriend oral sex while he was wearing a condom. He then penetrated me with that same condom.
Avatar n tn There is a cream that is applied by the patient called Aldara (you can read about it at and they usually go away after a few applications. Also, you can find some very useful information at the American Social Health Association's Web site. Go to: Good luck, and don't worry, usually after treatment (whether topical or surgical) the warts do not reappear.
Avatar f tn thanks for your opinion and i have done so researching and they both have the same symptoms as you say herpes is more painful but its not painful and theres no blisters with puss so i dont know but they tested it so i find out in 2 weeks but im so anxious because this is my first pregnancy and i dont want anything to happen to my child .
Avatar m tn I do have a history of Genital Warts but these were removed by a derm and cared for with extensive Aldara treatment. Could this put me at risk to catch an STD even with protection? Also, the kicker here is that my wife is 8 months pregnant and i fear i may have given her something even though she has no symptoms other than usual pregnancy related things. Please help!!!
Avatar f tn I just wanted to ask the experts to make sure these are not myths. 5. Last, how can this affect our pregnancy plans? We're planning to have a baby a year or two from now. But I'm scared that my warts may come back and that I may give them to my future baby during labor. Thanks for your time in reading all my concerns! Looking forward to hearing back from you!
