What happens if I do not seek treatment for genital warts?

Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), and they can be quite contagious. If left untreated, genital warts can lead to a number of complications.

Untreated genital warts can grow in size and number, making them more difficult to treat. They can also cause pain, itching, and discomfort, especially during sexual activity. In some cases, genital warts can cause bleeding or become infected, leading to further complications.

Certain strains of HPV that cause genital warts have been linked to an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer, such as cervical cancer in women and anal cancer in both men and women.

Emotionally, untreated genital warts can cause embarrassment, shame, and anxiety. They can also affect your self-esteem and sexual confidence, leading to difficulties in relationships and a decreased quality of life.

It is important to seek medical treatment for genital warts in order to minimize the risk of complications and to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to sexual partners. Our Partner Doctors are here to help and can assist you to determine the best treatment plan for your specific situation.
