Was diagnosed with genital warts today doctor said they were very small & should clear up with one cycle! Just wondering how long it will take for these warts to go?

Your question really is after they are removed, will I get them again? This is a question that is difficult to answer. For 90% of all infected, they go away in 6-24 months. For some, they continue to occur for years. No one really knows why however there are things you can do.

Avoid sex for at least 3-6 months, use condoms afterwards as it reduces flare-up. Boost your immune system by not smoking cigs, reduced alcohol intake, healthy eating, exercise, more rest, reduced stress, multivitamins (Folic Acid, Zinc, A-B-C-E, herbal supps, etc.) There is some correlation to a strong immune system and not getting more warts. And there are cases of people with weakened immune systems getting more warts. You may or may not always be infectious. There is much debate about this. Goto the doctors forum and see what they say about this. With 85% of all sexually active adults having it or will having it, they don't see it as a big deal.
