What is human papillomavirus during pregnancy?

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of viruses that infects linings of various parts of the body, including skin, cervix, vagina, vulva, and anus. HPV often does not produce symptoms and resolves without treatment. However, infection also can cause irritation and later changes in cells that can lead to cancer or genital warts, which for women can be on the vagina, vulva, or anus and the surrounding area. More than 150 strains of HPV are known that can infect humans, but just a few of these strains cause disease, including cancer.
