In brief: Yes
Genital warts are caused by a virus called hpv.
The virus is sexually transmitted and is the most common std in the United States. People with multiple sexual partners or people with changes in their immune system are more likely to struggle with this virus and the warts associated with the virus. More importantly, the virus has been shown to be a cancer causing virus so be careful.

Getting the Gardasil vaccine BEFORE the onset of sexual activity is important for both females and males to lessen the risk of the diseases caused by HPV, including genital warts, and cervical cancer. HPV also causes cancer of the penis, anus, throat, vagina and vulva, but those are less common. Using condoms helps but does NOT prevent transmission of HPV

In brief: Absolutely yes
Absolitely yes! if for nothing else you should have this looked into confirm the diagnosis and receive appropriate counseling about this.
Clearly sexual habits and brainier devices or failure to use these will predispose you. Immunodeficiency may increase risks as well.
