1 doctor agrees
In brief: GENERALLY, NO
Genital warts (hpv, human papilloma virus) in a male can not be transmitted to the fetus directly but can infect the mother. Once hpv is established in the pregnant mother, hpv can be transmitted during vaginal delivery, but transmission rates are low.
Hpv can infect the vocal cords of the newborn.
