Only Having Sex With A Wife, How Can You Get Genital Warts?
Hello Tri, Thank you for the question.
Genital warts are a sexually transmitted infection. The cause is human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus is transmitted from one patient to another through contact with the patient's skin during sexual intercourse, whether through the vagina, anus, or oral sex. Transmission can also occur if the patient touches his own genital area and then touches the partner's genitals. There are 120 types of HPV, but only 30-40 types are transmitted through sexual contact, and most cases are caused by HPV types and types 11. In some cases, sufferers have been infected with HPV on their skin but have not had genital warts. What about your wife, has your wife ever experienced these complaints? If you have never dealt with anyone at all, chances are you have contracted it from your wife. However, of course the most important thing right now is to deal with the genital warts that you are experiencing.
Please consult with your skin and genital specialist further. Treatment will be given by the doctor in the form of wart removal which can be excision, electrocautery, cryotherapy, or laser. This treatment only treats genital warts but does not eliminate HPV from the body. Most HPV infections will disappear from the body due to the immune system that works against this virus. The best prevention is not to have sex with someone whose history of sexual intercourse is unknown.
