how much time does it take genital warts to appear after infected by hpv?

Months to Years: Once cells are invaded by HPV, a latency (quiet) period of months to years may occur, during which there is no evidence of infection. Generally, about two-thirds of people who have sexual contact with a partner who has genital warts develop them within three months
