How do HPV warts affect a pregnancy?

In brief: Delivery
The presence of warts due to hpv virus will not cause harm to the pregnancy.
The only risk is at the time of delivery, when the virus may be transmitted to the baby when it comes through the birth canal possibly causing warty growths in the throat of the baby. It is best to clear warts prior to delivery. If extensive warts are present, a cesarean section may be indicated.
