it has come to my attention and the attention of other CL's and CM's in iVillage that iVillage is sponsering an ad that claims a cure for genital warts. This ad happens to be on our board and I just felt it necessary to tell you that unless there has been some sort of medical break through in the last 24 hours, there is no cure for the virus that causes genital warts. Once you are infected you are always infected, even if you do not have a break out, you are still a carrier. And just because the person your are having sex with doesn't ever show a symptom of the virus , doesn't mean that they haven't contracted it. Genital warts is the most commom STD and it's something that you have to live with. Outbreaks are treatable but not the virus itself.

With all of the changes going on in iVillage, the ads have been put on the "last to do list". but there definately have been complaints about this ad ( and the penis enlargement ad) SO I'm sure adventually they will get to getting rid of it ,but in the mean time , ny conscience wouldn't be clear if I didn't put up this disclaimer. The ad is a bunch of CRAP don't believe it!!!
