Genital Warts Symptoms

What Causes Genital Warts?

  • Genital warts, like other non-STD warts, are caused by various types of the human papilloma virus (HPV) that infect the top layers of the skin.
  • There are over 100 different types of HPV that can cause warts, but only a small number of strains can cause genital warts. Those that do are highly contagious and are passed on through sexual contact with a person who is infected. (HPV types 6 and 11 cause the majority of genital warts.)
  • Anal sex can cause warts: On, in or around the anus and rectum
  • Oral sex can cause warts in the mouth and throat

OK so prevention is the best medicine – but sometimes so is hindsight… and if this is the case then you need to know what to look out for so you can nip it in the bud – so to speak…
