How long will it take to be cured of HPV as a adult male?

How long will it take to be cured of HPV as a adult male?

Depends: Hpv can easily "cured" if treated appropriately. However, the virus may remain in the penile skin although not visible to the eye. These viruses may cause a recurrence of the warts in the future and close monitoring is neccessary. If no visible lesions are present, then one can be considered "cured" but must be monitored for possible recurrence in the future. ...Read more

After having HPV for years, is it possible to lose my sexdrive?

Yes but not b/c HPV: While it's possible to lose one's sex drive (libido), it won't be due to HPV or any other sexually transmitted disease/infection, at least not directly as a result of infection. With that said, complications from STD/STI eg pain or just emotional distress from chronic infection could certainly affect your libido negatively. Go see your Family Doc for complete evaluation. ...Read more
