    How do I reduce the risk of spreading condylomas?

     

    • During your treatment to eliminate condylomas, we recommend that your sexual partners get vaccinated. You should also use a condom (male or female) during sexual relations with any partner, current or new.
    • Refrain from sharing sex toys, especially those used for penetration.
    • The risk of transmission via underwear, swimwear or used towels is unknown, but probably quite low compared to sexual contact.
    • We also recommend that your sexual partner(s) see a doctor, even in the absence of symptoms, to determine if treatment or vaccination is required.
    • Your doctor can help with the process of notifying your sexual partners.
    • After treatment, even if the condylomas have disappeared, the virus remains dormant in many people and can eventually lead to the reappearance of condylomas.
    • Always use a condom, especially if your sexual partner is not vaccinated.
    • Schedule regular check-ups and contact your doctor if you suspect something is wrong.
    • No test is currently available to determine whether a person infected with condylomas is still contagious, however we know that you can remain contagious, even without symptoms, for at least three years after initial infection. We therefore recommend that your new partners be vaccinated against HPV.
    • Not discussing the issue and seeing your partner later develop condylomas can be problematic for you and them.
