HPV, genital warts, and gardasil shots

I am a female. I got all 3 gardasil shots about 5 years ago. What are the chances of me having genital warts? I am really terrified. I am constantly looking down there with a mirror and checking for things. It is starting to ruin my life. I know I can still get different kinds of HPV but I just want to know about genital warts.

The gardasil shots prevent the 2 hpv strains that cause 90% of genital warts. Those would be good odds if you were at a casino eh? Stop checking : ) and practice safe sex
