Hpv is a virus not an infection . You will never get rid of it and unfortunately their is no cure. Yes you and your wife could be passing it back and forth to each other.

If you have warts then you are contagious again. Most people never experience the warts again after having 6 months - 2 years of showing no symptoms at all. However a small percentage take longer to build immunity to the virus. It is also capable of re-activating in a persons system after a long time of laying dormant.

You cannot pass the virus back and fourth. Once you have it, it is in your system for good and you cannot re-activate the virus by having sex with an infected person, as you already have that strain. If your wife also has the virus, she too cannot ping pong the virus back and fourth, as she already has it, it isn't like an infection which once cured can be caught again.

If your wife doesn't already have the warts you are at risk of infecting her. If you treat the warts and use a condom, the chance of giving your wife the warts are significantly lower than if you didn't treat them and didn't wear a condom
