Genital Warts

   

Genital warts which are also called venereal warts, are contracted through sexual contact. They are spread during direct, skin-to-skin contact during vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person. They can also take place with infants by their mother during the time of delivery but this is very rare a condition.

Genital warts is one the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the world. In the US alone almost six million new cases of genital warts are diagnosed each year.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Genital warts are bumps that appear in and around the vagina or anus or on the cervix in females or on the penis, scrotum, groin, or thigh in males.
  • They can be raised or flat, single or multiple, or small or large
  • They can cluster together to form a cauliflower-like shape
  • They are usually flesh-colored and painless

The Genital warts should be taken care of as they have the potential to turn into life threatening diseases, approximately 10 to 15 of the 30 or more genital HPV types can cause the development of cancer. One difficulty with genital HPV exposure is that it may take several months or years after infection for symptoms to appear - if there are even symptoms at all. The average period is 1 to 6 months, but this is variable. Sometimes, the warts are so small and flat that they may not be noticed immediately. You can always ask for question about if your partner had a history so that you can stay clear of the problem at the start of a relationship.
