There : There in cure for hpv. The good news is that the strains that cause warts do not cause cervical cancer. However you need to continue with yearly pap smears.
If you are worried about speading the virus, or contracting other strains for that matter, you should use condoms with any new partners. This is a good idea anyway especially if you are going to be in a new relationship(s). You can start your new life by being safe and responsible with the use of condoms.
Take care and enjoy your life!
