Answer to your Health Question


I have human papillomavirus. I would like to get pregnant


Dear Adriane,

In the event that your child gets the type of HPV that causes genital warts, she/he may develop warts on his vocal cords and other areas sometime in infancy or childhood.

This condition, called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, is very serious.

If you plan to get pregnant and have genital warts or an abnormal Pap test caused by HPV, get treatment before you get pregnant.

A pregnant woman can pass HPV to her baby during vaginal delivery.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause various types of warts, most commonly, genital warts.

If you have genital warts you can still get pregnant but you also have a risk of passing the genital warts onto you baby.

Genital warts may grow faster during pregnancy, possibly from the extra vaginal discharge that provides the virus with a moist growing environment, hormonal changes, or changes in your immune system.
