Vagina


HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS (HPV)
(Genital Warts)

  • Type of Infection: Viral

  • Transmission: Vaginal, anal or oral sex.

  • Symptoms: Painless fleshy, cauliflower-like warts develop on and inside the genitals, anus and throat.

  • Treatment: There is no known cure. Warts can be suppressed by chemicals, freezing, laser therapy and surgery.

  • Impact on Infected Person: HPV is the virus that causes genital warts. The some strains of the virus are strongly associated with cervical cancer as well as cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis and anus. In fact, HPV is the cause of more than 90 percent of all cervical cancer, which kills about 5,000 American women every year.

  • Impact on Fetus or Newborn: Infants exposed to the virus in the birth canal can develop warts in the throat which can obstruct the airway and must be removed.

  • Preventive Measures: Abstaining from vaginal, anal and oral sex with an infected person is the only 100% effective means of prevention. Condoms provide almost no protection against contracting the disease during sex.
