Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for writing in .

Warts are caused by Human papiloma virus.Can spread from skin to skin contact.If not treated can increase in size and number.

Best treatment for warts is removing them by RF cautery .
It is a OPD based procedure.
As you are pregnant presently RF cautery cannot be performed and it is contraindicated.You can undergo cryotherapy or TCA application.

In my opinion it would be best to undergo RF cautery after your delivery and to wait till the delivery.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
