Overview

What are Genital Warts?

Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) that affects the genital area. They are caused by a virus called Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV infection can be passed on through sexual contact such as penetrative sex. This can occur even if there are no visible warts at the time of sexual contact. 

The scientific name for genital warts is Condylomata acuminata.

Warts can disappear without treatment but this can take months or even years. If they do disappear they may return in the future.

In about 30% of people, genital warts will disappear within 6 months. In about 75% of cases, the warts will clear up within 2 years without treatment.

Certain types of HPV viruses have a risk of causing cancers such as anal and cervical cancers. The HPV vaccine given to school children protects against these cancer risks and can protect against genital warts. Sometimes people can still contract genital warts even if they have had the vaccine.

Causes

Causes

Genital warts are caused by a virus called the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This is a group of viruses and there are over 60 different HPV viruses. Genital warts are caused most commonly by the HPV-6 and HPV-11 viruses.

Genital warts are transmitted from person to person. This most commonly happens through sexual contact such as vaginal and anal sex with sexual partners. Occasionally they can be transmitted through oral sex or even from hand warts or surfaces.

Genital warts can be prevented from spreading by using a condom every time you have vaginal, anal or oral sex.

What are the Treatments for Genital Warts?

In about 30% of people, genital warts will disappear without treatment within 6 months. Treatment may help clear warts sooner. The aim of treatment is to remove the warts. The most common treatments are

  • Condyline solution
  • Warticon cream
  • Aldara cream.

Condyline solution and Warticon cream contain the active ingredient podophyllotoxin. This works by stopping the wart cells from growing and eventually destroys the wart cells. Both products are suitable for warts that are soft. 

Aldara cream contains the active ingredient imiquimod. Aldara works by helping the immune system of the body produce natural substances. These substances help to fight the HPV virus causing the warts. Aldara is suitable for both soft or hard warts. 

Our doctors are able to prescribe these products online.

Another option available to patients is cryotherapy or freezing. This must be performed by a nurse or doctor who freezes the warts, usually once a week for 4 weeks.

It may take weeks or months for treatments to work and unfortunately, treatments may not be effective for everyone.
