The only way to completely prevent genital warts and other STDs is to avoid sexual contact. You can also reduce your chances by eliminating risk factors. This includes limiting sexual partners to one partner you know is not infected by HPV.
Other prevention techniques include wearing condoms, although this will not fully protect you. Nearby skin can also be affected.
Recent research and clinical trials have helped doctors develop two vaccines for preventing genital warts and HPV. Schedule an appointment at Florida Hospital to determine if you or a loved one is a candidate for these groundbreaking vaccines.
