Transmission during HPV Remission
Doctor -

1) Is the genital warts form of HPV infectious during remission?

2) After a breakout of genital warts, when can one safely assume that the infection is in remission?

3) Can the body clear genital warts HPV?  How long does this clearing take?

4) What is the maximum possible latency period of genital warts HPV, assuming infection and no symptoms?  I've read anything from months to decades.

Thank you.

People can go decades between wart breakouts, but most people who go 3-6 months without warts will never have them again.

HPV usually clears in 6-24 months, wart causing strains clear faster than high risk ones.

If you go 6 months without warts, there is a good chance that you have cleared the virus.
