What Causes Anal Warts?
While most people who experience anal warts develop them from exposure to the HVP virus during anal intercourse, it’s possible to develop warts in the anal region without having engaged in anal sex.
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, anal sex is the second most common cause of the HVP virus that causes genital and anal warts, but anal warts can also develop after vaginal intercourse in both men and women.
Although the warts can go away on their own, they can be particularly bothersome when located in the anal region, making waiting as long as a year or two a less-than-ideal option.
Anal Warts Treatment: An overview
Before discussing anal warts treatment options, let's look at what they are. Like most genital warts, anal warts are usually small and they can develop both inside the rectum and around the anus.
Most genital warts do not cause discomfort or pain, so in some cases, those who have them may not be aware. If left untreated, however, genital warts – including anal warts – can spread, causing both physical and psychological problems.
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, genital warts including anal warts can spread easily, and as many as two thirds of those who have intimate contact with an infected sexual partner will develop warts. They can turn up sometimes as quickly as three months after the initial contact, although the virus may never show symptoms or can incubate for a longer period of time before warts develop.
Risk factors for anal warts
While anyone who develops genital warts from the HPV virus can also develop anal warts, those at a higher risk include:
- Those who have unprotected sex with more than one partner
- Those who participate in anal sex
- Those who have had not only sex, but also intimate contact, with a person infected with the HPV virus
- Those whose first sexual experience was at an early age
- Those whose immune systems are compromised, either by illness or medication
The symptoms of anal warts
In many instances, genital warts that appear in an around the anus may be so small that they go unnoticed.
They generally tend to grow in clusters of three or four but can show up as a single wart, and can have both smooth or rough, cauliflower-like surfaces. While anal warts are usually skin colored or a bit darker, other colors are also possible, including yellow, gray or light brown.While many of those with anal warts have no symptoms, some may experience itching, anal discharge, bleeding and pain, especially if the warts inside the anal canal are larger and in clusters.
In addition to anal warts, genital warts can appear on the vulva, vagina and cervix of women and on the penis, scrotum, thighs or groin of men.
Genital warts can also appear in the mouth or throat of an infected person if the virus was contracted through oral sex.
Risks of anal warts
Left untreated, anal warts have the potential to become cancerous, although anal cancer is rare.
Still, anal warts are responsible for the majority of anal cancer cases, so it’s important to take steps to treat the warts to limit risk factors.
The risk of cancer occurs because HPV infects the layers of cells that cover the inside and outside surfaces of the body, including the skin of the anus. Once the virus enters the cell, it begins to produce proteins that can potentially interfere with the normal functions of the cells. Those cells can then grow abnormally and mutate. Such irregular cell activity makes the cells more vulnerable to developing into cancerous tumors.
While the process can take decades, and damaged cells may never develop into cancer, knowing the risk factors is important if you have genital warts that have spread to the anal region.
How can the spread of anal warts be prevented?
If you have anal warts, it’s also important to take steps to prevent the virus from spreading to others.
- Wait until you apply the right anal warts treatment before engaging in sexual activity.
- Use condoms during sex. They are not 100 percent effective, since infected skin can be located outside the condom’s coverage area, but they do reduce your risk factors.
- Talk to your sexual partners about HPV. While the conversation might be embarrassing, it’s important to be honest in any relationship, especially a sexual one.
- Limit your sexual partners.
- Use an anal warts treatment like the all-natural Tyginta. It is possible that HPV is less contagious when warts are not present.
Why choose Tyginta?
Tyginta is an effective wart serum containing two powerful tinctures with a long history of successfully treating anal warts.
Although Tyginta does not eliminate the HPV virus, it can erase the symptoms, including genital and anal warts, restoring your self-confidence and your quality of life.
Tyginta may also help prevent future outbreaks, because as it works to eradicate existing warts, it stimulates your body’s immune response, helping keep the HPV virus under control.
Our product is easy to use – Tyginta is simply applied directly on the site of the wart with a brush – and it is completely private, erasing the embarrassment of an office visit.
Tyginta also does what many other anal warts treatment options don’t. Our innovative product penetrates deeply below the skin’s surface to reach the root, attacking the wart at its core. Others often only treat the surface of the wart, so it has the potential to return almost as quickly as it went, requiring more treatments.
If you’re experiencing the pain and stress of anal warts, Tyginta is for you.
Anal warts can recur even after successful treatment, and there is also a possibility of reinfection if safe sex isn’t practiced. Having one monogamous partner can significantly reduce the risk.
