INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE GENITAL AND ANAL WARTS DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What are genital and anal warts?

Genital warts, which include anal warts, are lesions (thickened abnormal tissue) in the vulva and in the genital-anal region that are caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), which is transmitted as a sexually transmitted infection (STI) during physical contact involving the mouth, vagina, anus, or penis, when one of the people involved carries HPV. About 90 percent of these warts are caused by HPV strains 6 and 11. The transmission can happen through contact, even when sexual intercourse does not take place. The warts can be present both in non-pregnant and pregnant women.
