More Answers to “I am 11 weeks pregnant, just found out I have HPV. How does that effect my baby? What are the chances of a M/C“If you find yourself infected with HPV (human papilloma virus), you’re in crowded company. HPV is probably the most common sexually transmitted infection in the world, affecting an estimated 75 percent of sexually active adults at some point in their lives. Often HPV causes no symptoms, so many people don’t even know they have it. But it’s a certain strain of HPV that causes genital warts — individual or clumps of small (sometimes flat and velvety) flesh-colored or whitish bumps that can appear anywhere in the genital area. While there’s no shot or pill you can take to cure HPV (antibiotics work against bacteria, not viruses), the infection often goes away on its own. During pregnancy, genital warts can get a bit more complicated. Sometimes, surging pregnancy hormones (and your suppressed immune system) can make the warts increase in size, making it hard to urinate (not the kind of thing a pregnant woman with an overactive bladder wants to hear!). Occasionally, the warts will bleed. Neither scenario poses any real threat to you or your baby. And the chances of transmitting HPV to your baby during delivery are incredibly small (just .05 percent). In very rare instances, however, warts that lie inside the vaginal wall can grow large enough to obstruct the birth canal (and baby’s pathway out) and make it less elastic. In these cases a cesarean section might be necessary, although it’s more likely that your practitioner will opt to remove the warts, perhaps through freezing, electrical heat, or laser therapy. One final note: The strain of HPV that causes genital warts is not the same one that causes the kind of cellular changes that can lead to cervical cancer (which is commonly associated with HPV infection). If you have a different form of HPV (and there are more than 100 types), you should talk to your practitioner about getting regular Pap smears postpartum. Still, during your pregnancy and childbirth, your baby is at no risk. Best of Luck to you through your pregnancy!! ~Bon talk to your ob/gyn.. the can remove them or give you a c-section
u should talk 2 your doctor. s/he should know the anwser, since s/he knows more. Source(s):mom had a baby a month ago
It will not harm your baby unless you have visible warts, chances are you won’t have a miscarriage if your that far along.
I know of no danger to normal delivery of a baby, but cervical cancer has been linked to this and after delivery treatment such as cononization of the cervix might be recommended.
I just asked a similar question. I was diagnosed with it when I was pregnant. I’ve had my baby(natural) and he’s fine. Mine was the cancer kind not the wart kind. If it’s the wart kind there’s a chance(if you have the baby natural) that it can be passed to the baby and end up in the throat. If you have a C- section it won’t be passed to your baby. Your doctor should discuss your options with you. I don’t think there’s a higher risk of a “mc” though. Someone answered my question with this link.

talk to your doc but unless you have an outbreak of sores or bumps you should be fine. They say that any STD can effect you one way or the other during pregnancy, but again check with your doc. By the way, If you believe in God and know Jesus Christ, have faith and believe that everything is going to be alright and it will. Be Encouraged!
almost everyone that has had sex has a form of HPV, there are 3 types (i think) one of my friends has it (it only makes her pap smears come up abnormal) i don’t think you can have a mc b/c of it tho. however, you could talk to your doc. and see what you could do. until then ~wishing you the best of luck ~
HPV is extremely common and people for hundreds of years have been delivering babies never knowing they have it. As a matter of fact my OB/Gyn doesn’t even treat it as a condition unless it causes problems. She says its something that almost the entire planet carries and theres nothing you can do about it. I don’t believe it puts you at risk for a miscarriage. Talk to your OB/Gyn about your concerns and s/he can put you at ease and address your specific questions at your next visit. In the mean time relax, the stress is more harmful than the HPV. Good luck with your baby! and congrats!
