Facts About Genital Warts-

 – Caused by a virus called human papilloma virus (HPV).

    Not all warts are the sexually transmitted kind and most are very common.

 – Many treatments but NO cures!

 – Warts may disappear but the virus remains inside of you.

 – Nothing over-the-counter works to remove genital warts, especially “wart removers”!

 – A doctor must cut them off, burn them off,

    or freeze them off…and then the warts still come back later and are carried for a lifetime.

 – There is a clear association with genital warts and deadly cervical cancer in women!

 – A vaccine for HPV is now available for females
