this is not clearly stated in all HPV info pages i've read.. they just mention there are a few strains of HPV to be concerned about but did not indicate if they are part of those strains that causes severe health problems..

The term cleared is obscure. Here is what Dr. Handsfield just posted about it on the Doctor's Forum:

"After 18+ months the risk of infecting your partner with your current HPV infection would be extremely low.  However, there is never a guarantee that HPV cannot be transmitted in the future."


What this means is that it can clear and you may not be infectious, but someday you may be infectious. So most doctors do not think the virus is gone from your body when it clears. It is there at very low levels and can one day activate again, usually when your immune system is lowered. Lead a very healthy life and boost your immune system to reduce the odds of being infectious again. Clearance is not the right word here. Reduced odds of transmission is the better term.
