Question: Can genital warts be gone forever?

 E1274 - Sun Jan 06, 2008 11:24 am

Or is this something that will always be in my system? I was diagonosed with them about 10 years ago, had symptoms of them for about 2 years and have had nothing since. Want to know if my body will fix it or is it still there, just dormant.

User avatar Yes, genital warts can come and go on their own, similar to how other warts on your body can do. As a virus, your body can keep them in check with potential for another outbreak or you may never have them again. The fact you have gone so long without a recurrence is very encouraging.

Best wishes.

Are they not a form of HPV or is that something differant?
