Warts are caused by HPV so doctor diagnosed you according to the skin lesion's appearance. You can't be 100% sure that you don't have HPV because laboratory tests in men are not precise like in women. But you will know if a new wart appear. If that wart, that doctor has frozen it, was the only HPV-lesion you are practically cured.

so basically even tho i havent had a return of the wart, i have to presume i still have hpv and can pass it on?

are there any people out there who have had to stop looking for relationships,
have had their partners leave because of it etc i,d like to hear from you to see how you cope or not.

You shouldn't think like that. HPV-infection is not incurable disease. Beside therapy, your immune system also fights the virus. If you don't have any wart on your body you are HPV-free so you can freely keep and create relationships with other people. HPV is transmitting by direct contact with the lesion (wart) so it is very important to act on time when you notice some wart. Unfortunately there are certain types of HPV that causes genital lesions that can't be seen with bare eye. Those lesions can be seen with colposcopy and PAP-test in women. Unfortunately tests in men are not that accurate like in women.

We know there is no cure to this however there are products out there that can subsidize the effects of it. I've been using a homeopathic treatment called wartrol that has completely diminished the warts. HPV has been apart of my life for the past 2 years and I am excited I finally came across this product. Its not like all products because you take a pill once a day along with an oral spray. To me both in conjunction work a lot quicker than just applying a topical treatment.

If you want to check it out the website is wartrolhealth.com

HPV
I am confused on the genital warts/HPV. I thought genital warts was a virus in its own and had nothing to do with HPV. I thought that there was no cure for genital herpes and you will have the virus forever. I have been told HPV (in most people) COMPLETELY goes away on its own by one doctor... n told by another that the HPV virus never goes away. And my research has seem to show the same opposite answers.

So my questions are:

Can you only get genital warts if you have HPV?
Does the genital warts/HPV virus ever completely leave your body?


If anyone could answer my questions it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks.

HPV, Cervical Cancer and Genital Warts
Over a year ago, I was also diagnosed with HPV with the high risk types. My doctor did a bioposy and told me that the tests came back normal. He said that I will have to be tested every six months. He advised me that if I come up clear after the next two pap smears, I will be fine. However, he said I will always carry the HPV virus.

It is easy to see why this is such a confusing issue.

Six months after my initial diagnosis, I found a genital wart which was removed. Now, I have developed a fever blister on my mouth. It is Herpes.

Some people have strong immune systems that will help them overcome these things.

Take care of yourself, stay healthy and stress free.

i was under the impression that a virus was forever present in the body..viruses cant be cured since they aren't living..and though the body's immune system may suppress the symptoms of the virus(warts for example) the virus that actually causes the warts can still be present in the body just in a dormant phase..this means that unprotected sex could still lead to the virus being passed on...correct? ...this is what I was taught...also..i didn't think that you had to actually have the warts in order to pass on warts..again the virus could be in a dormant phase right? and you can unknowingly pass the virus to your partner and while you may not show symptoms of warts your partner may still get the warts since the virus was passed on? ...right? anyone got any input? im confused...i just took microbio and was told viruses cant be cured you can only treat the symptoms the virus causes

well i was told a few days ago that i have genital warts.....i only had one so far and i had it removed well kinda i gotta go back for a second treatment..anyways the doctor told me that there have been recent studies where the virus leaves ur boidy within a year or two but also one that says it can leave your body before ur 30...but also she also told me it could stay forever but with no symptoms at all.... she said it depends on how healthy you are and how strong ur immune system is to fight off the virus
