The virus can be spread to or from the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat during sexual activities. But warts in the mouth or throat are extremely rare. Condoms can lower your risk of getting genital warts.
After the infection occurs, it may spread to other areas of the genitals or to the anal area.
You can spread the virus even if you do not have any symptoms of infection or any visible warts.
There is a small chance that a pregnant woman can pass the virus to her baby.
