No, High Rish HPV will not give your partner genital warts. It's actually the other way around low risk HPV cause genital warts. Warts can form weeks, months, or years which is when it usually forms after sexual contact with an infected person.  HPV-6 and HPV-11 are "low-risk" HPV types which cause genital warts. HPV-16 and HPV-18 are the "high-risk" HPV types which do NOT cause genital warts but do cause cervical cancers. If your partner has genital warts and you do not, it usually means that you have a higher defense and your partner did not pass it to you. It is still important for you to consult with you doctor because if it was passed to you you can break out later like I stated before.
