If the warts you had 5 years ago never came back it is very unlikely that they ever will.
If you did not pass the virus to your ex bf, you are not likely infectious.
The virus does not stay dormant in skin as easily as it does in the cervix as its a different type of virus that causes hpv on the skin vs the cervix.
If you have a normal pap smear and no clinical evidence of the virus, you are not contagious.
Bear in mind that if you have unprotected sex, you can always contract a new hpv strain.
Thanks, ***** ***** a borderline pap, just after the warts, but it was normal at 6 months and they did a hpv test at the time and it was negative for all including hpv 6 and 11. So after this time the warts are unlikely to come back? I just see about when immune system is low ect. It's confusing and I don't know what to think
Thats great that the hpv was negative Thats a dna probe and very accurate. It means you dont have it.
The only way to get it back is to be reinfected by somebody new
Ok, so the idea that warts lie dormant and come back after years you think is not likely?
Also the hpv test was obviously from the cervix and not where the warts previously were, so does that mean I am only negative on the cervix or everywhere? Thanks sorry
Not genital warts and not if you are hpv negative
Its not dormant in the skin that long and it would be positive everywhere
