How long (months/years) can you have HPV (human paploma virus) before you start getting genital warts?

In brief: A few months

About 2/3rds of people who are exposed to the hpv strains that cause genital warts (type 6 and 11 are most common) will develop warts.
The incubation time is variable but somewhere between 3 weeks and 8 months.
