If a female has genital warts, can she have oral or intercourse with a man without spreading it to him? What can the do? I would like to know what we can and can't do?

If a female has genital warts, can she have oral or intercourse with a man without spreading it to him? What can the do? I would like to know what we can and can't do?

The : The only foolproof way to keep from transmitting or catching genital warts is to avoid sexual contact. Condoms can help decrease the spread, but cannot fully protect you since the warts/virus can be on the skin not covered by the condom. That being said, since condoms reduce the risk they should be used at all times. The hpv virus (the one that causes genital warts) can even be spread when there are no visible warts so often, in an ongoing sexual relationship both partners are infected by the time one of them is diagnosed. For more information, i've attached a great website with tons of information on genital warts. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm 22 female. Have suffered wit genital warts for 4yrs :( doc freezes external ones but theres 1 by my clitoris, how can I treat these internal ones?

Aldara (imiquimod) or laser: I would consult your doc for an eval to see which rx option is best for you at this time. It is difficult to tell without an examination. Lesion near by the clitoris is still considered external and Aldara (imiquimod) cream may help. Carbon-laser destruction can also be done if appropriate based on result of evaluation by your doc. Also, would consider hpv vaccines series if u have not done so. Good luck. ...Read more
