Genital Warts in Women: Homeopathy Can Help

Many things don’t come to women easy. They have to be careful, mindful, struggle, fight and earn many little joys in their life. One such joy is having the pleasure of a healthy sexual life. Women are physically sensitive and need to be on the lookout for infections and contagious diseases, all the time. 

With an active sexual life, comes the risk of developing many sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). While it is good to have a healthy sexual life, it is also vital to be careful about the diseases that could tag along with the pleasure you derive. Genital warts are an example of conditions caused by not taking your sexual health and hygiene seriously. Find out what genital warts are and how not to have them!

What are genital warts?

Also known as venereal warts or condylomata acuminata, genital warts are caused by and are symptoms of  the human papillomavirus (HPV). Genital warts are fibrous overgrowths covered by a thickened outer layer which may appear around a woman’s vulva, cervix, vagina, or anus. They are contagious and one of the most common types of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).

What are its symptoms?

It is absolutely possible to have HPV without showing symptoms. Genital warts usually seem to appear about three months after infection. However, in some cases, there may be no symptoms for many years, but when they do appear, 

  • They are painless but bothersome because of their location, size, or due to itching.
  • The size may range from less than 1 mm (0.039 inches) across to 1 cm (0.39 inches) when many warts join together.
  • Women with genital warts-in most cases-complain of painless bumps, itching, and discharge.

What are the risk factors for genital warts?

Women who are sexually active are at risk of getting HPV. However, genital warts are more common for women who:

  • are under the age of 30
  • smoke
  • have a weak immune system
  • have a history of child abuse
  • are children of a mother who suffered from the virus during childbirth

Homeopathy for genital warts

While in most cases, visible genital warts often go away with time, HPV can linger in your skin cells. This means you may have several outbreaks over the course of your life. So managing symptoms is important because you want to avoid transmitting the virus to others. 

That being said, genital warts can be passed on to others even when there are no visible warts or other symptoms. They are treated to relieve painful symptoms or to minimize their appearance. 

The beauty of homeopathy treatment for any kind of condition is that it does not suppress the symptoms of the condition, but seeks to eradicate the ‘root’ cause of health problem.

The following treatments can be effective for removing genital warts:

Homeopathy topical medication: A cream or liquid applied directly onto the warts for several days each week. This can be administered at home and the treatment can continue for several weeks.

Homeopathic course of medication: The homeopathic approach to treat genital warts is very different from the conventional methods that involve burning the growths with laser or through surgery. These solutions are temporary and involve the risk of recurrence. Homeopathy offers an entirely natural and comprehensive remedy for genital warts that uproots the cause and prevents recurrence. Additionally, homeopathy ensures a few things that are mentioned below: 

  • Homeopathy medicines have no side-effects.
  • Treatment with homeopathy offers individualised cure, which means your physician evaluates you thoroughly and develops a treatment plan that is specific to the needs of your condition. Since Homeopathy is symptom based women can easily avail online consultation for genital warts from the comforts of their home or office.
  • Homeopathy is simple and effective.
  • Homeopathy is the safest option because its treatment does not interfere with your conventional medication.

How can genital warts be prevented?

To avoid contracting genital warts, it is important for sexually active people to take preventive steps. These can include:

  • abstinence from sexual contact for a while
  • using protection
  • women receiving the HPV vaccine
  • openly informing partners about genital warts
  • quitting smoking

That said, it is very important for women to be forthcoming to their physician. Conditions pertaining to their sexual health-if diagnosed early- can be treated earlier without the chances of them getting aggravated. Talking about sexual health is important for a healthy sexual life.
