Amongst everything else that you have to deal with because of genital warts, you will also have to deal with your own emotions. Most people will run through the gamut of emotions and can find themselves on a roller coaster of highs and lows, and most people will hold themselves rock steady and rage on the inside.

It doesn't matter how you express it, whether you're voluble or whether you're aloof, it can't be denied that discovering you have genital warts will take its toll on you and put you through an emotional wringer. Since not everyone reacts the same way, you might also find yourself needing the support of your partner through this, or having to brace yourself against their first fiery onslaught when you tell them.

If it was a shock to your system, you can depend on it that it will be a shock to their system as well. You at least have had the benefit of a few hours worth of thinking to at least marginally take the genital warts, they haven't. That's where you might have to be forbearing, at least in the beginning until they can take the your feeling of the genital warts in as well.

The best thing that you can do is to talk things over and get over this rough time as best as you can. You will have questions, and the most burning of them could be how you got genital warts in the first place. These might apply to either you or your partner. However, there's a better than average chance that you won't be able to pinpoint exactly when you got the genital warts infection, especially if you've had multiple sexual partners in the course of your sexual life.

You might also have to cope with the fact that you might face rejection from your partner. Not everyone can cope with news such as this. This is also a normal reaction and something else that will have to be dealt with. Of course, there's always a great chance that your partner will stand by you and that you can face this genital warts infection together.

And since genital warts are highly contagious, your partner should also have to get a screening done to test them for genital warts. Although it can't be denied that genital warts aren't something that you would willingly talk about with another human being, so it can even be difficult to make it to the first appointment at your doctor's. After all, who on earth wants to admit to having any sort of problem with their private areas?

Not me for certain, and I can personally attest that the issue of genital warts is the most embarrassing thing to have to talk about. It's just not the sort of thing that comes up in casual conversation. "So yeah, I went to see my doctor today and he said that I have genital warts". Can you see that conversation going down too well at any parties? I didn't think so!
