Will stopping your birth control cause an outbreak of genital warts if you have hpv?

Will stopping your birth control cause an outbreak of genital warts if you have hpv?

No: Hpv is a virus (human papilloma virus). Viruses tend to appear or disappear based on our immune system and stress. You didn't say what type of birth control you were using, but hormone birth control won't affect genital warts. Using condoms can help prevent contraction of hpv, but not 100% effective. If you're worried about warts, see your doc, they can help you treat them. ...Read more
