    Genital HPV infection is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). More than 30 of these viruses are sexually transmitted, and they can infect the genital area of men and women including the skin of the penis, vulva (area outside the vagina). At least 50 percent of sexually active men and women acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. In short what we are saying here is Genital warts are STDs.  Many people carry the wart virus on their penis, in and around the vagina, or in and around the anus/rectum.

    Not everyone with the genital wart virus will have signs of a disease. A point to note is that Genital warts can also be referred to as Condylomata Acuminate, Venereal warts, sometimes penile warts. Genital warts STD infections are caused by genital sexual contact and it�s very highly contagious. The use of condoms should not be a substitute. It can be difficult to talk about STDs, but just as with any other medical issue, we need this information to stay safe and healthy. Exchange of bodily fluids is not a cause for transfer of genital warts STD, rather it is through skin to skin contact.

    That is why I mentioned earlier that using of condoms will not be of much help in preventing you from contracting the genital warts STD from infected partners. The most common method carried out to detect the genital warts STD is by visual examination which by and large is conducted by a doctor. No treatment for visible genital warts is better than another, and no single treatment is ideal for all cases.The warts are sometimes found on the outer lips of the vagina, inner thighs or other potions of the genital area.

    If the visual examination does not yield lots of fruit, other tests can be run on you like cervical smear test or even colposcopy, which is dabbing the affected area with acetic acid.  Other causes of genital warts STD is starting to have sexual relationships at a tender age, having unprotected sex, having sex with multiple partners and also having a history of other STDs.                                                           

    No treatment is completely satisfactory, and some treatments are uncomfortable and leave scars. External genital warts may be removed by laser, freezing (cryotherapy), or surgery using local anesthetics For instance Podophyllin toxin, imiquimod, trichloroacetic acid and so forth. In uncircumcised men, circumcision may help prevent recurrence. Some topical medications include: Aldara, a cream, which boosts the immune system's ability to fight the virus.

    Gardasil is a vaccine for genital warts STD too which is recommended to be administered to young girls between the ages of 9 to 26 in a number of three dosages before the onset of sexual relationships. Due to its highly contagious nature the only truly effective way to prevent genital warts STDs is abstinence. That is why it is very important to check up with your doctor anytime you switch partners; that way you will not accidentally infect another person if you do indeed have any STD's like genital warts. Sexually active women should have a regular Pap Smear test to screen for cervical cancer and other pre-cancerous changes.

    Check yourself often for signs of actual warts; these can be treated. But remember: we treat the wart, not the virus, which stays in the skin.

    This would be more suited as a hub than a forum post, except for the fact that it's duplicate content.  Forums are more for discussion than for long-winded informational posts.
