HPV 15 years ago - still transmissible?
About 15-16 years ago, I was treated for genital warts.  They have never come back, and every single pap smear/gyno exam has been clean.  So now I have two questions:

1)  Can I still transmit the virus to a new partner?

2)  Should I tell prospective partners?

Thanks!

Sounds like you have "cleared" the virus out of your system. If you had wart right now, yes you should tell a partner.  Sounds like you're fine, you don't have to tell anyone.

I've been in a monogamous relationship. He was treated at the same time I was.
