Why are genital warts in women different?
Even though both sexes could be infected, certain strains of the human papillomavirus are known to cause cervical cancer, which makes these strains far more dangerous to women than to men. However, the types that are responsible for the development of female genital warts are low risk and do not present health hazard. The infection is spread through sexual contact, the latent period lasts from a few months to a few years, and many of the infected women will never see any visible signs of the infection. However, when the genital warts in women appear, they are found in or around the vagina and the anus and on the thighs.
They could be flat, small, or large and raised, and they often from clusters; they could be colored differently too, but in order to gain a better idea of how they look, see the pictures that we have posted. Most of the available treatment options are highly successful, but since they do not remove the virus, recurrence is always a possibility that should not be ignored.
