That depends: Many women can clear the infection on their own without having any difficulty. However, for other women, hpv can lead to genital warts or to precancerous cells or both. If you have precancerous cells or dysplasia, you should see your gyn and pursue the recommended treatment in order to avoid progression to cancer.

Human papillomavirus: Can we expect blood tests in the future? What about a cure even for hpv? Very curious.. (27yr old male)

Human papillomavirus: Can we expect blood tests in the future? What about a cure even for hpv? Very curious.. (27yr old male)

No and no. Sorry!: No blood test for HPV is commercially available or expected soon. They are used in research but not accurate enough for patient care. Once a blood test is positive, it is positive for life, long after the infection is gone. True cure of HPV also is unlikely. Happily, the immune system clears almost all infections, and the large majority cause no disease, even the types with the high cancer risk. ...Read more
