Appearance and cause.
Genital warts, caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), occur around the anus and on the penis, vagina, vulva, cervix and rarely orally. These warts, spread by sexual contact, are often flat, tiny and difficult to spot and diagnose. You get these warts from having sex with somebody who also had an STD.
Another way, is to wear protection, such as condoms. "Safer sex" includes inquiring about the type of sexual practice and history of previous STD's of your sexual partner.
This shows how the warts will look. They could be bubbly and gross looking.
This shows where on your body they will be at; penis, vagina, cervix, etc.
They could end up on your mouth or inside your mouth caused by oral sex.
