Genital Warts during PregnancyHello,
I am currently 31 weeks pregnant. I discovered genital warts at around 24 weeks and have been having them frozen on a weekly basis however this is having little effect and if anything, the warts are spreading.
In the past couple of weeks the warts have also become extremely itchy, particularly at night. There is no bleeding. Warts feel hard and dry, are white, rough in shape. Newer lesions are smooth and flesh coloured.
I'm obviously wary of some treatments due to pregnancy. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a homeopathic remedy and dosage safe for use during pregnancy and advise on how to take it.

maheeru on 2017-11-26Complaints: Trouble falling and staying asleep, restless legs, frequent need to urinate, little thirst during the day, lethargy and lack of motivation, dry hands and feet (finger tips and heels), comedonal acne on jaw, watering eyes outdoors, difficulty waking in the morning, feeling stiff and nauseous until the afternoon. Long term low blood pressure, and during pregnancy. Dizziness and light-headedness. History of skin problems since late teens, acne (recurrent), pityriasis rosea (resolved), molloscum contagiousum (resolved, sexually contracted from ex), pyogenic granuloma on finger (resolved), verruca, right foot (resolved after many years) seborrhoeic dermatitis (recurrent), itchy legs (recurrent), patches of contact dermatitis (recurrent), dry peeling lips (recurrent since childhood) that I have a tenancy to chew/pick when nervous/stressed. Intolerant to milk. When ingested without heating it causes severe stomach cramps. I can tolerate cheese/yogurt but I choose not to eat them as I generally feel better without and they can make me nauseous.
In early pregnancy I experienced an ocular migraine for the first time. Little pain but I suffered visual disturbance for 20 minutes. At the time I was stressed about telling my family about pregnancy (2nd pregnancy, baby conceived during one night stand 1 year after 1st baby was born with ex partner who broke up with me when first baby was just 4 months old)
Emotional state: emotional roller-coaster due to ex partner. He has always been a fairly depressive and antisocial person. We first got together 10 years ago in our early 20's (I'm 31 now). 5 years ago I got very drunk and had a one night stand, I have little recollection of that night. I told my partner about it immediately and begged forgiveness. He never seemed to be able to do so. A few months later he began to ignore me, before finally admitting the relationship was over and leaving. We were back together within 6 months. He left for a second time within the next year, again, ignoring me before finally admitting he didn't love me anymore and leaving. This was a very emotional time for me and I started to suspect due to his behaviour that he was not mentally well but also blamed myself. He came back to me for a second time and promised he had come to terms with everything and wanted us to be together and start a family. Four months after our daughter was born I noticed a return of the same behaviour, ignoring me, drinking excessively. He told me he wanted to leave and I swore it would be the last time for our daughter's sake and because I couldn't take the heartbreak of the cycle repeating indefinitely. Since we 'broke up' he hasn't really been out of my life, he has many problems relating to drink, drugs, depression, debt, he lost his job, he frequently falls out with friends and family and he plays the role of victim very well, he cannot accept responsibility. I have acted as a confidant and caregiver to him when I should have distanced myself emotionally to heal. He seemingly hit rock bottom in October. Shortly before he left he came over to my house, drunk or under the influence of drugs and began to talk about our sex life and how unsatisfactory it was and how it could have been improved if I did xyz. He suggested this might have saved our relationship. He also mentioned he cut off some skin tags he had on his groin and asked me about a skin tag I had on my bikini line. I told him I wasn't comfortable with the conversation and would he please leave. It was the next day that I discovered the genital warts, as if they had appeared over night. It sounds strange, but the same thing happened with my acne. I've always had clear skin on my face. One day someone complimented me on my skin and complexion and shortly afterwards I developed bad cystic acne that lasted nearly 3 years. It improved significantly on birth control and has never been as bad since, although it still reoccurs.
Because of his behaviour and drug use and insistence on being part of our daughter's life I have had to involve certain authorities recently to ensure our safety. I feel guilty about this but I know it was the right thing to do. On a daily basis I am emotional as I worry about him. He has recently been sectioned for suicide attempts. I fear that my involvement of authorities and my attempt to finally distance myself from his drama will cause him to try again. He has currently broken all contact with me. I am weepy and tearful most days. I am obsessed with finding a solution for the warts and I fear passing them on to my baby. I am keeping busy during the day to try and distract myself, often obsessive with cleaning, crochet and watching TV series in the evening once my daughter is asleep to the point I cannot switch off. I have a short temper and even the smallest things are causing me to shout. In the evening if I think about what is worrying me my heart beats faster and I feel breathless and have palpitations. I have been encouraged by one agency I am currently involved with to think about whether my ex partner has been controlling during our relationship and whether his behaviour could be categorised as emotional abuse. I am constantly bringing up and thinking about the past and so confused that I cannot make sense of anything. I feel that I don't know my own mind and have lived a lie for a long time.
I love my daughter and I am looking forward to meeting my son. But other than having my children I don't feel very hopeful about my own future. I feel very stuck. I see my family weekly, but I don't have many friends or a social life. I haven't spent more than a few hours separated from my daughter since she was born, she is 19 months old.
I don't really have any cravings. Normally I tend to prefer savoury over sweet. I don't have much of an appetite to begin the day, food seems like a chore and nothing sounds very appealing. I eat what's there and make an effort to make it nutritional for my daughter and the pregnancy. We often eat the same things every day. I feel like if it wasn't for the pregnancy I wouldn't feel physically hungry at all. Physical hunger tends to come late in the evening, after dinner as does thirst. Sometimes I eat something, sometimes I don't. More often than not it is fruit or toast because it's quick to prepare. During the day I probably have about 3 cups of decaffeinated tea to drink, I am only thirsty for water in the evening. I was a coffee drinker before pregnancy 3 or 4 cups a day but can no longer stand the smell/taste. I seem to have become intolerant to caffienated tea too, and feel quite queasy after consuming it.
I prefer cooler temperatures generally, pregnancy in particular makes me feel hot and uncomfortable. I am prone to getting to warm in bed and have to sleep with my feet uncovered. However on a couple of occasions in the last few months I have woken up at night, feeling like I might be coming down with a cold or flu. I begin shivering violently to the point that my teeth chatter. Once I warm myself up, I am often too hot. When I wake the next day I have no further symptoms.
Many thanks for your reply
Elka on 2017-11-27Please help. The nurse I saw yesterday for cryotherapy said she would need to refer me to a consultant if the warts got much worse. I really don't want this to interfere with a normal birth. If I have to have a c-section I will have very little help with my daughter while I'm recovering. I don't know how I will cope.
