Question: Hello, I have accidentally been exposed to genital warts, just one time. We used condoms but they were on his balls. Is it guaranteed I will get the infection myself? I am not sure if I have had the Gardasil vaccine. Thank you

Well, there is no prophylaxis for this exposure at least. If you had your genital e=washed soon after the exposure this will ensure then chances of transfer ll be negligible.
