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

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.
