genital warts
I am very upset as my pre-marriage gynaecological exam revealed genital warts. I am a virgin and have never had anything even approaching sexual relations with anyone, except for my fiance- with him he did place his penis in my vagina but my hymen is still intact. I therefore deduct that I got the genital warts from him but he denies it. What are the facts?

Dear Virgin
Genital warts can be sexually transmitted - even with superficial contact. He may have warts in his urethral canal without being aware of it. It can also be transmitted via the hands.
