Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection (Genital Warts)
Symptoms show up 1-8 months after contact with HPV.
- Small warts on the sex organs and anus
- Itching or burning around the sex organs
How is it spread?
Vaginal, anal, or oral sex, or sometimes genital touching, with an infected individual
There is no "cure" for HPV infection, although in most women the infection goes away on its own. A mother with genital warts can give them to her baby during childbirth.
