i don't believe so.did u have warts and they went away on their own?i adhere to the school of thought here that the body will clear a HPV virus in 6-18 months.The strain goes dormant and one cannot pick up the same strain.there are 40 diff types and one can b exposed to a new strain...2 of which are wart bearing...HPV 6 and 11.

so if I understand  what you are saying.  you cannot pick up the same strain twice, however can the strain come back once it has cleared.
