I received the results of HPV typing and I'm positive for LR57/71, HR 56, HR 66/68. Is there a cure? Does it go away?

Follow doc's advice: Almost all HPV infections are cleared by the immune system, usually 1-2 yr. Viral DNA may persist with chance of later recurrence, but for practical purposes the infection is gone.

Let : Let me start by saying that approximately 1/3 people carry the hpv virus. Most of those people don't have signs or symptoms and may never know. There are 100's of types of hpv, the most dengerous causing cervical cancer in women; there are other types which cause genital warts. The cancer risk in men in much lower than women; the types that most commonly affect men are rectal and throat.

To answer your question, hpv can be passed by oral sex and even genital to genital contact.
