Can genital warts be prevented?
You can reduce your risk of getting the virus that causes genital warts by practicing safe sex, which means using a barrier, such as a condom. However, it is important to remember that condoms only protect the area of skin that they cover, so even with a condom there is still a chance of infection. The infection can also be spread even if there are no warts present.
