What to do if I have been researching HPV a lot and I'm still so stuck! can you get rid of HPV or not?

Depends: This depends on how you define having hpv. The virus has active and dormant phases. If you are discussing the active phase, like genital warts, these often eventually go away or respond to treatments.However, the virus is from a family of viruses well known for going dormant in the host body with the potential for recurrence.You tend to have it forever, but it may never return to an active state. ...Read more

No: There are numerous different wart viruses. Perhaps your initial infection came from him, or his came from you. If you each have a different wart virus you might transmit it to the other person. Even though both have been latent all this time there was a risk of transmission during latency. So you are not likely to get more warts from him but it is possible. ...Read more

No: The majority of people with HPV don't develop cancer. With routine pap tests and HPV screening, patients rarely go on to develop cancer due to the effectiveness of treatment. In addition, there are many strains of HPV and only a few cause most of the cancers. I recommend you speak with your OB/GYN about your specific results and follow their screening and treatment recommendations. ...Read more

Could i get HPV warts from my boyfriend who carried it 11 years ago?He hasn't had any symptoms at all or still? I have pain in organs in a.M

Possible but...: A hx of no recurrent wart after treatment is favorable but not a guaranty of not still being a hpv carrier because many hpv-infected men, like women, have no visible lesion. But at least, we can say he may have strong enough immune ability against hpv even maybe still a carrier. In fact, some 10-15% of the us adult population are positive hpv dna test, yet just some 1% have visible lesion. ...Read more
