Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is very irritating to skin if not diluted in a carrier oil (and sometimes water as well). Genital tissues are especially sensitive - so user beware.

No: All pregnant women will produce a vaginal "discharge" due to the normal, healthy production of cervical and vaginal mucus. Leaking clear fluid is always a warning sign and should be evaluated immediately.

Yes: It is possible but not very likely. Sperm must get inside the vagina in order to get pregnant. If sperm is spilled outside the vagina it would have to get into the vagina for you to get pregnant.

How does having genital warts affect pregnancy?

Almost no effect: The hormones of pregnancy make genital warts worse, but warts do not generally affect the pregnancy. Women with warts can still safely have a vaginal delivery. After the hormones decrease after delivery the warts will often improve. In rare cases, the warts are so large they can obstruct the path for the baby. This is very uncommon.
