Genital warts are caused by HPV virus. This is the same virus that also causes normal warts on your feet, hands and other limbs of the body. Though the group or family of the virus is common but there is a difference in its type. Cervical cancer which mainly happens to females is also caused by a virus of this family.

This spread of the disease is mainly through contact with the infected area. Now genital infection is transmitted while mating or conducting unprotected sex. The routes are either through vaginal sex or through the anal sex. The state of the virus sometimes remains silent or dormant. If the virus is silent, it may be difficult to detect even if one takes an STD test. However, the patient may come back if symptoms are still showing. Once the virus becomes active, the disease will then be detected.

Results should come out in a few days or weeks. The important thing about STD testing is that it can detect infection right away for early treatment. This may prevent further health complications to the patients and stop the spread of the disease onto other people. STD testing actually aims to manage the spreading of the disease and its rise in its number of cases. This is to confirm if one is infected with STD or not.

Once a disease is detected, the patient may immediately have a treatment.
