I read that HPV may go away on it's own, if it does are you still consider contigois?

I read that HPV may go away on it's own, if it does are you still consider contigois?

Might,however: The HPV represent a family of dozens of virus strains that have a pattern of staying within an infected host forever. For some that have easily recognized features like the warts, it is obvious when they become inactive.(disappear) However, they also may reappear years later. Some strains may never come out of their hiding places, but I always assume they could. Some probably never do. ...Read more

If I had HPV in the past, but have tested negative for it for several years, can I still spread it to someone else or is it gone?

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. Even if DNA is there, the immune system usually controls infection to a point it doesn't reactivate or cause disease, can't be detected, and can't be passed to partners. That's probably where you are. Get vaccinated to prevent future infections. ...Read more

I had HPV in the past while having a boyfriend. After a year it was gone.Year later I have it again and im still with the same partner. Did he cheat ?

Hard to say: I assume you mean HPV warts genital warts since that is the form you would notice. Most will clear with help or naturally in 2 years, but it can recur at anytime in the future. Same goes for other strains of HPV, once you get a strain it can clear and never re-activate or linger & cause problems decades later. It is not a good marker for cheating. ...Read more

Yes: The vaccine only protects against certain strains of HPV--the ones that are most commonly indicated in cervical cancer and genital warts.

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
