What are Genital Warts?

Genital warts are sometimes referred to as External Genital Warts (EGWs) and they are a cause of embarrassment and concern among both men and women. Genital warts are caused by the same type of virus, HPV (human papilloma virus) that causes warts on other parts of the body, and they can often be treated in a similar way. Of course, given the sensitivity of the areas involved, great care must be taken with any treatment for genital warts.

The medical definition, according to Medilexicon's medical dictionary, is "a contagious projecting warty growth on the external genitals or at the anus, consisting of fibrous overgrowths covered by thickened epithelium showing koilocytosis, due to sexual contact with infection by human papillomavirus; it is usually benign, although malignant change has been reported, associated with particular types of the virus."

How are genital warts transmitted?

Genital warts are transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person. This contact can be vaginal, oral, or anal, and warts do not have to be present to pass the virus to a partner. The warts can appear at any time from a few weeks to a number of months after the sexual contact. They often appear as soft, flesh-colored swellings in small clusters that can ultimately spread into larger masses in the genital area.

Genital warts are transmitted primarily by sexual intimacy, and the probability of infection increases in relation to the number of sexual partners. There are other circumstances that also increase the risk of the virus infection, including smoking, oral contraception and the early onset of sexual behavior.

Are genital warts contagious?

In a word "Yes". They are actually highly contagious, with a 60% chance on being infected after one sexual encounter with someone carrying the virus. That leads to over a million new cases of genital warts being reported every year. When the cases that are never reported are taken into account, it is estimated that there could be as many as five million people infected every year.

One issue is that genital warts are spread from skin to skin contact, not via sexual fluids. Because condoms don’t cover all affected areas, it is completely possible to pass HPV even when having safe sex. The only sure way of not getting genital warts is to abstain from sex.

Another issue with genital warts and their contagiousness is that the incubation period of the virus can be anywhere from two to nine months. This means you could be infected for more than half a year with genital warts and not know it. Until the first warts appear, there’s no way of knowing that you need medication or that you are putting potential partners at risk.
