|How are genital warts spread?
Genital warts are very contagious and are spread during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner. About two-thirds of people who have sexual contact with a partner with genital warts will develop warts, usually within three months of contact.
In women, the warts occur on the outside and inside of the vagina, on the opening (cervix) to the womb (uterus), or around the anus. In men, genital warts are less common. If present, they usually are seen on the tip of the penis. They also may be found on the shaft of the penis, on the scrotum, or around the anus. Rarely, genital warts also can develop in the mouth or throat of a person who has had oral sex with an infected person.
Genital warts often occur in clusters and can be very tiny or can spread into large masses in the genital or anal area.
|Do you think 80% of all pregnant women should choose surgical birth? That's insane! The risks of cesarean vastly outweigh the risks you might transmit HPV to your baby.|
|If they didn't see a wart, they can't diagnose HPV. That is ridiculous. There are plenty of reasons for abnormal pap besides HPV. Get a new practitioner. I'm apalled. That makes me angry they would subject you to such fear you would consider elective cesarean without even explaining to you why they think you have it!!|
