I got out of an abusive relationship (all aspects) in January. The guy liked to have anal sex without condoms. I could never get him to wear one. Not to mention, he would just "slip" in there, and I was never prepared. I never liked anal sex, but he would get angry if I did not do it. After I got out of the relationship, I had a pap and was found to have HPV (not the wart kind). Since January, I have been having rectal bleeding. Now I have had a history of hemorrhoids, so wasn't so concerned at first. But the bleeding, which has since been diagnosed as hemorrhoids, has not stopped. I have been seeing a GI doctor for the hemorrhoids and even had a sigmoidoscopy (sp?)done, which also confirmed hemorrhoids. I am concerned about HPV and anal sex. I have not disclosed to my doctor about the HPV and anal sex, as I am rather embarrassed about the whole situation, especially since I could never get him to wear a condom.
Would the HPV be causing the hemorrhoids? Should I be worried about anal HPV? What do I do? Please help me, I have been worried for months!
