Some docs say HPV (warts) is completely cleared by the body eventually.Others say never-it lies dormant. So what's the verdict? Dormant or cleared?

Some docs say HPV (warts) is completely cleared by the body eventually.Others say never-it lies dormant. So what's the verdict? Dormant or cleared?

You can not predict who this will happen to or do anything to change it other than avoiding smoking which decreases the risk of clearing the virus. Unless you are having manifestations of hpv the presence of the virus is not something to focus on. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting oral warts /hpv from giving oral sex to a female? Many of the docs on here have given me polarized opinions about this

HPV: There is no right answer to almost any question about hpv yet. I would say that oral sex performed on a female is of low risk.
