Yes, you can get pregnant if you have genital warts. If you are pregnant, you should not use podophyllin or podofilox to treat the HPV outbreak because these medications are absorbed by the skin and may cause birth defects in your baby. In addition, you should not use 5-fluorouracil cream if you are expecting.

Genital warts, however, may cause a number of problems during pregnancy. Sometimes the warts get larger during pregnancy, making it difficult to urinate. If the warts are in the vagina, they can make the vagina less elastic and cause obstruction during delivery.

Rarely, infants born to women with genital warts develop warts in their throats (laryngeal papillomatosis). Although uncommon, it is a potentially life-threatening condition for the child, requiring frequent laser surgery to prevent obstruction of the breathing passages.

Does that help?
