HPV isn't a single virus but comes in hundreds of different forms; genital warts typically come under two forms of the virus, type 6 and 11. In many cases of the virus, there are no visible signs that you even have it so it can be hard to track. Typically the virus is spread through sexual activity and close body on body contact. There isn't a cure for the virus but there are treatments you can take that will help relief the symptoms of the virus to help you get on with your day.

The virus can also be spread through the sharing of sex toys and vaginal and anal sex.
