Hello everybody! I'd really like to have an answer to this. It's been about 6 months since I had found out that I had genital warts, and it actually took them 6 months to really clear up, I have to precise that I did not have a new outbreak within these 6 months I didn't notice no new warts an also those that were there weren't itchy and I wasn't having discharge. I only felt itchy the first week that I discovered I had them and had some discharge too. But after this first week they stopped itching complety, they were completly harmless, my only problem was them being there. I had been using aldara cream and they have cleared up just recently. Will they come back again? I recently met this awesome guy and I'm scared to pass the virus to him, do you think after fighting these warts for 6 months and now they are gone, I can still pass the virus to my new boyfriend if we don't use protection? And also, I have read that, if I catch a new strain they might reappear, so can I get vaccinated to avoid new strains, or the vaccine won't work because I already have HPV? I'm a young lady turning 24 soon.
