Probably gone: There's confusion about the duration of HPV; it's complex and new knowledge comes along frequently. HPV DNA may persist for life, but not necessarily.

That's probably where you are. Get vaccinated to prevent future infections. ...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.
