Answer

No medications or vaccines are 100% effective. One human papillomavirus vaccine (9-valent, Gardasil 9) is available in the United States for the prevention of HPV-associated neoplasias and dysplasias, including genital warts (condylomata acuminata). The FDA has expanded the age to receive the vaccine through age 45 years. [7]

Sexual abstinence and monogamy are protective.

Condoms may discourage transmission.
