Not everyone's immune system can fight this virus. Some people need extra help. For those that need help to boost their immune system, the recommendations from your fellow HPV positive people are to do things like: Stop smoking cigs, stop or cut down on all booze, take vitamins and supplements, exercise often, reduce stress, get more sleep and (most importantly) - no sex (esp no unsafe sex) until the warts are gone for at least 3 months. I know the no sex thing may be toughest of all but this is what most people do when they are trying to chase the warts away. Some doctors will say 6-24 months of no warts. At the very least, condoms use will help a lot.

Some men who want their warts to go away stop having sex for 3-6 months. Some go as long as 24 months because they need more time to recover and stop getting warts. There is no recommended number but 3 months is the minimum. The goal is to be wart-free and time without sex isn't that big of a deal if your body requires that to recover.
