Vaginal Warts: Everything You Need To Know

About

A vaginal wart is a soft growth that appears on the vagina.

Research shows that women aged betweem 21-30 who receive the HPV vaccine can reduce their risk of getting genital warts by up to 50 %. [1]

- Requires a pelvic examination, Pap test, and colposcopy for diagnosis
- Affects only women

Vaginal warts are usually caused by strains of HPV that differ from the strains that cause warts on your hands or other parts of the body. A wart cannot spread from one’s hands to genitals and vice versa. They are usually transmitted through sexual activity, including oral, vaginal, and anal sex. They often take months or years to show. Vaginal warts appear in inside or outside of vagina or anus and on the cervix.

Ages Affected: Common in women who are under the age of 30.

Symptoms

- Small, flesh-colored or grey swellings in your genital area
- Several warts close together that take on a cauliflower-like shape
- Itching or discomfort in your genital area
- Bleeding with intercourse.

Treatment

Medications: Your doctor may prescribe you some creams to get rid of warts. Also, he may prescribe you with medicines that you could intake to increase your immunity to fight warts.
Surgery: Surgery like freezing with liquid nitrogen, Electrocautery, Surgical excision and laser treatments might be performed to get rid of warts.
Specialists: You can connect with dermatologists at mfine who will provide you with a holistic treatment program.
