Genital : Genital warts are the most common sexually transmitted disease and are caused by the human papilloma virus (hpv). The answer to your question really depends on the extent of your genital warts and which treatment options would be best for you. There are two main types or treatment: medication and surgery. The medications are: imiquimod: this is a prescription cream that can boost the immune system to fight off the warts. Podophyllin: applied by a doctor, it is a plant-based resin that is used to destroy warts. Trichlororacetic acid: this is also applied by a doctor to burn off warts. Surgical treatments: cryotherapy: freezing the warts with liquid nitrogen electrocautery: using an electrical current to burn off the warts surgical excision: cutting off the warts laser treatment: using a laser to burn off particularly difficult warts the best thing for you to do is to speak with an ob/gyn doctor who can examine you and give you a better idea of what your options are and what to expect afterwards. Good luck!
