Genital warts- what are they?
Genital warts are caused by a group of viruses called HPV. This HPV virus also causes the common arts found on other parts of our body. The difference is in the type. HPV is of more than a hundred types. The virus that causes genital warts is different from the virus that causes other warts. Virus of the same family of HPV also causes cervical cancer in women.
Genital warts- how do they occur?
HPV virus is transmitted by sexual contact. It can spread both by vaginal and anal sex. After you catch the virus you may not develop any warts for months or years. You are a silent carrier yourself unaware that you have contracted HPV. When warts appear they will appear singly or in a bunch. They look like skin-colored bumps and form cauliflower shapes.
Genital warts in women-
In men, the warts are seen but if they form in a woman’s vagina, they will not be seen unless a doctor examines her. These warts spread very fast in the genitalia of women because the virus thrives in moist warm surroundings.
To protect yourself from getting HPV, always use condoms and try to keep a monogamous relationship. Keep yourself safe at all times.
