The Singapore Department of Sexually Transmitted Infections (or DSC) revealed in January this year statistics on sexually transmitted diseases/infections (STDs/STIs) in Singapore. Interestingly, Genital Warts was the fourth most common complaint presenting at DSC. 

Genital warts are caused by infection with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).

Unlike most other STD, there is a vaccination available in Singapore for the prevention of genital warts. Moreover, the vaccine can reduce the risk of contracting genital warts by approximately 90%.

The vaccine is suitable for both males and females; it provides protection against ano-genital cancers (such as cervical cancer) and throat cancers.

Consult our doctors to discuss whether these vaccinations are suitable for you.
