Hello, sorry to hear about your recent results.
HPV is forever but it has a typical cycle. Most people get outbreaks every 1 to 3 months for a year on average and up to 2 years at most. Then they stop coming unless you have some sort of immune suppressing event like pregnancy, cancer, over the top stress, ect.... If you get warts, go have them frozen off or whatever. Once you've gone 6 months with no new outbreaks, you can cautiously think you've reached that point. After a year, I'd conclude you're over the outbreak period. During that first period of time, I'd either disclose or wear protection. Remember that genital to genital touching is all you need so rubbing foreplay is not safe. After you've gone 6 months to a year, I'd be ok without condom use anymore. Evidence points to you maybe not being as contagious between outbreaks, but it's too risky in my opinion and some people are and others aren't.
I'd go ahead and get vaccinated. Might as well. There are multiple strains both high and low risk covered by it so it's still a good idea from my point of view.
The incubation period is a rarer week or so to 3 to 8 weeks but could be a little longer. You are not at higher risk of catching other STDs.
What test did you take at home? I would like to taje the same test.
After testing positive for 6 months, my last two STD/STI tests have come out negative for any type of HPV (either low risk or high risk). It appears I seroconverted. Yay!
