How to Detect the Symptoms of Genital Warts

October 29, 2009 by admin 

The symptoms of Genital Warts may sometimes appear without the warts themselves manifesting themselves. On the other hand the converse is also true. The warts can sometimes show themselves without your having any of the symptoms of Genital Warts associated with it. That’s why even if you can’t see the warts but you have the symptoms of Genital Warts, you should still go see a physician.

Guesswork is no substitution for a proper medical exam and by ruling out the fact that you might have genital warts, you can then move on to finding out what is causing such symptoms of genital warts within you.

symptoms of genital warts can sometimes take up to a few months to manifest itself. In these cases, you can unknowingly pass it on to your sexual partner. And if you were recently in another relationship and your former partner has developed genital warts within the last few months, you might want to think about getting a check up for yourself.

This is a good idea even if you don’t have any visible symptoms of genital warts as, like I mentioned, it can take a few months from the time of infection for the HPV to manifest itself.

Below is a list of the more common symptoms of genital warts.

• Pink, or flesh colored lesions – these can be raised or flat

• Moisture or dampness around the infected area

• Single or multiple instances of warts, which can be large or small

• The warts might sometimes have a cauliflower like appearance

• Vaginal discharge

• Vaginal bleeding after sexual intercourse

• Vaginal bleeding not associated with menstrual bleeding

• Papules on the penile shaft

• Itching of the affected areas

• A burning sensation

Warts can also be painless in nature although you might still have an itching sensation. There can in some cases be a high level of irritation involved with the symptoms of genital warts, or there can be no sensation at all. Raised cauliflower-like warts are not an uncommon sight, just as warts that are small and flat are also seen quite often.
