Am I at Risk?

Good evening me and my partner have been dating since Dec.2005. We were boyfirend and girlfriend Sept.24th 2006 and have been ever since. I noticed some small warts on his shaft maybe two or three then I noticed a cauliflower type one on his anus maybe July 2006 because it wasnt there the months before. I asked him about it he didn't know anything about it. I told him to get checked he said he did and they told him it was warts and it's not contagious and they gave him a tube of Condylox to  out on them and they would go away. The ones on the shaft did but the anus ones are still there and a couple of months ago the shaft ones and the area around the crevice of the scrotum are getting more and he said he went to the doctor again and they said its not contagious and they its ok that they reappear because that happens sometimes. I personally don't believe this and it looks just like genital warts because i researched it and saw a lot of pics on them and they look just like his just not as many. We still were having sexing unprotected for all these years and I haven't came up with anything what should I do I'm starting to get really paranoid and scared.  Help!?

All warts are caused by HPV, and all warts can be infectious.  The strains of HPV that cause genital warts are very infectious.

At this point, you've already been exposed, so its really up to you whether or not you want to keep having sex with him.  

If his doc truly told him they aren't infectious, he needs a new doc.  You should also talk to your doc about the HPV vaccine if you are under 26.

HeyThere1, I'm not a doctor but I really think you should make an appointment with yours .
Although there is not a specific test for wart (although some drs use vinegar and/visual inspection) there is a simple test for HPV which is sometimes a result of being exposed to warts.

A vaccine can now protect females from the four types of HPV that cause most cervical cancers and genital warts. The vaccine is recommended for 11 and 12 year-old girls. It is also recommended for girls and women age 13 through 26 who have not yet been vaccinated or completed the vaccine series.

Visible genital warts can be removed by patient-applied medications, or by treatments performed by a health care provider. Some individuals choose to forego treatment to see if the warts will disappear on their own. No one treatment is better than another.
But there is no cure for Genital Warts.

I strongly advise you to start practicing safe sex or no sex with this fella no matter what he says.  Protect yourself my dear.  You are all you've got.
