There's an unofficial rule some of us follow: if you had it once, you are at increased risk for having it again. Doesn't mean you will, but that you can. Some things that need to be considered. For instance if you were diagnosed with high risk hpv which greatly increases your risk for cervical cancer. This is why we emphasize that boys and girls up until the age of 26 be vaccinated against hpv.
