Wart removal reduces risk of transmission of HPV which causes warts
However, HPV can stay dormant/latent for decades
The chances of transmission after being free of warts for so long are not high
Regular Use of condoms would reduce risk of transmission
Genital warts are very common and majority of adults would contract this at one or the other time in their life
Is there a risk when we have sex of giving him the warts if I don't have and haven't had any since that one time? Is there reason to tell him? Thanks in advance.
There is a very low risk
I think telling him is your personal decision
I think sharing sexual history builds trust and prmotes sexual health
So, in summary, It is possible to give him warts, Though the risk is low
And risk can be reduced with condoms
