In brief: Usually go away
80% of women with genital warts will have spontaneous resolution with-in 12 months.
However, treatment with one of the current immune system modulating medications specifically intended for genital warts can decrease that time to a few weeks or a couple months for most women. Genital warts are not usually painful, but if the warts are painful, treatment for a quicker resolution is warranted.
