I was recently diagnosed with HPV, genital warts (gw). I used the aldara cream, and they went away, and I haven’t had a trace of them since, for the last couple of months.
I have a couple of questions:
1.) I heard recently that within 2 years, in 90% of HPV cases (including gw), the strain of HPV is diminished by the immune system. Is this true? Meaning, barring any kind of immune system compromise (I am very healthy.. ridiculously strong immune system), I should expect to be tested negative for gw hpv in the future?
2.) I know I still have the virus… but it is dormant. I have no signs what so ever of them. Could I spread the virus to others?
I’m 24/f, and very healthy like I said. I got the HPV vaccine about a week after becoming infected (not knowing I was infected).
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
