If you get genital warts during pregnancy, your doctor will monitor the situation closely, but usually the warts are not treated until after you deliver your baby. They can go away without treatment. If the warts need treatment, the doctor may recommend one of these options:
- laser treatment
- cryotherapy - removing the warts using liquid nitrogen to freeze them off
- chemically "burning" the warts with acid
- removing the warts surgically.
