Maybe. Maybe not.: Nobody really knows. That's why people should be sure they got the Gardasil-9 vaccine. Then, they get their regular check-ups with their primary care doctors, who can usually check for warts. If suspecting warts or going for follow-up after wart treatment, do set a separate appointment. Doctors generally are not given enough time to do all that and still do a good check-up at a check-up visit.

A 31-year-old female asked:
If you contracted genital warts, over 10yrs would you likely have had an outbreak?

Genital warts: Genital warts are caused by a virus. Over time, if contacted, your immune system can acquire antibodies which attack and destroy the virus, so an outbreak may not occur.

I have genital warts how can I help my body fight the hpv?

Nutrition/rest: A normal immune system is boosted by a proper balanced diet & rest. Regular exercise is also helpful. You can have the warts removed by laser/freezing or chemical application but the HPV germ is well known for hibernating in your system after primary clearance. If you see testimonials about supplements consider them a myth.
