What is the normal incubation period for HPV genital warts?
Patient :What is the normal incubation period for HPV genital warts? Eveywhere i look online seems to have a different answer. I had unprotected sex 3 months ago and have no reason to believe I have genital warts, but am anxious about it due to not being able to test for it (male).
1. At 3 months if i have not developed any signs of genital warts are the chances low that I will in the future?
2. If I were to have genital warts how easily are they transmitted outside of sex? As easily as shaking hands or touching something and handing it to somebody?
Sorry the questions are so far out there. I dont know why I have such terrible anxiety about this.
Thanks for the query
