In 90% of cases, the body’s immune system clears hpv naturally within two years. Sometimes, hpv infections are not cleared and can cause genital warts or cervical cancer.

Are there cases where with proper follow up & Pap tests + no sex, HPV would leave the body & I'd be cured? Or it stays in the body no matter what??

Likely stays: HPV is from a family of viruses that tend to persist in the body indefinitely. After initial infection, it can go clear any obvious tissue and go into hibernation for decades. That does not mean they always cause cancer, it just means you maintain a lifetime of monitoring so you can remove the initial stage of such change early enough to prevent it's spread. ...Read more
