What tests can be done for males in advance to check for genital warts/hpv?

by Rachel on May 29, 2011

My friend got genital warts and she was with a man for going on 5 yrs, she is only sexually active with him and she fears that he may have cheated on her and gave her genital warts. How often do males give females genital warts? What about the average timespan it shows in woman after the man has been infected? Should she suspect her partner? Should she worry about cancer?

The two of them need to go together to see a gynocologist.

How often do males give it to females? I’d guess most of the time. Same as how often females give it to males, genital warts is an STD.

It’s also an extremely extremely common STD. Warts can be removed but the virus sticks around. They can be tiny, not visible, and go away and come back so cheating isn’t necessarily an issue here.

There are no tests for men really. Sometimes they use white vinegar.

The type of hpv you can actually see is not the same strain as the type that causes cancer.
