Which symptoms do genital warts cause?

Dr Louisa Draper

"Once you have contracted the virus which causes warts, it can lie dormant for a long time. Genital warts symptoms usually appear when your immune system is weakened, for example because you are stressed, ill or undergoing a medical treatment."

Genital warts are caused by a virus called human papilloma virus. Genital warts transmission occurs during sex and it can cause warts weeks or even months after infection. The warts do not usually cause any pain or irritation. Patients often fail to realise that they have contracted the infection until the growth has spread.
