HPV / Warts

Genital warts are the most common viral sexually transmitted infection (STI). They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) which can be passed on during sexual contact. Not everyone who has the virus develops genital warts. For most people, including those who have visible warts, the virus will be cleared from the body over time. It is rare for genital warts to cause any long-term health problems.
