In brief: Months to years

Once an hpv invades a cell, active infections occur, and the virus can be transmitted.
Several months to years pass before squamous intraepithelial lesions (sil) develop and can be clinically detected.

In brief: Years

An hpv infection that lingers around for years puts a woman at risk of developing cervical cancer, particularly if she is over the age of 30.
