No: Genital warts are common and are contagious. However, if a person had warts and had them treated so that no warts are present on the skin, then the partner should not be at any risk to contact them. It if believed that a wart must be present to spread the disease. The cells of the anus in a person who has had them treated still contain the virus, but they are not contagious. Peter wilk, md.
