|Section IX - SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS (STI)|
These are due to viruses. Viruses are among the smallest living germs. They cannot be seen by a naked eye.
Genital warts can be transmitted from man to woman or vice-versa. There may be only one genital wart over the walls of the vagina or on the skin of the penis. Occasionally there may be numerous small-sized or big warts which can and often do interfere with smooth sexual intercourse. Such warts may need excision, and the services of a doctor should be sought.
