Genital and Anal Warts (HPV)


A virus (HPV - Human Papilloma Virus) that may cause warts in or on your cock, ass, vagina or surrounding areas.


Symptoms, if they occur, show up in 2-3 months or longer. Symptoms include small bumpy warts on, in or around your cock, balls, ass or vagina, discomfort when going to the bathroom if the ass is infected, and anal or vaginal itching. Warts are often painless.


HPV is passed on by skin to skin contact with an infected person. Warts may not always appear in the place where skin contact occurred. Condoms can reduce the risk of transmission but do not always cover the infected area.


There’s no cure for HPV. Doctors can remove the warts by freezing, burning, laser or by applying wart paints or creams. Recurrences can occur and treatment can require several visits. Don’t use over the counter wart medications on genital or anal warts.

What else you should know

HPV can increase the risk of anal and cervical cancer. Bi-annual anal pap smears are recommended for HIV- people. For HIV+ people, they’re recommended annually. HIV and HPV co-infection can increase the size and frequency of warts. Vaginal pap smears are recommended annually.

What About Him?

Do you know who he is? Do you know his HIV status, or if he has another sexually transmitted disease? He may not even know himself. You can't assume or nescessarily be sure of anything. Talk about it before sex begins, especially if you and he can't or won't use condoms. Are you confortable taking this risk?
