There is no "cure" for Human Pappilloma Virus infection, although in most women, the infection goes away on its own. As someone else has mentioned HPV is actually a number of different viruses, including both high-risk and low risk viruses. The treatments provided are directed to the changes in the skin or mucous membrane caused by HPV infection, such as warts and pre-cancerous changes in the cervix.

Yes, you can develop a new HPV infection after you have been treated.

According to the experts, at least 50 percent of sexually active men and women acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. By age 50, at least 80 percent of women will have acquired genital HPV infection. About 6.2 million Americans get a new genital HPV infection each year.

HPV human Pappiloma Virus or HSV Herpes Simplex Virus? The last "answerer" seemed to think it was the latter you were referring to. They are very different things. HPV is a number of different viruses, some of which cause genital warts (the only symptom I am aware of that your boyfriend is likely to notice) and some strains (but not all) also cause cervical cancer. HSV is the herpes virus that causes cold sores or genital sores. There are drugs to suppress HSV but no cure at this time.

HPV consists of many strains of virus, so yes, you can develop a new HPV infection after you have been treated, though your body will have developed antibodies for the exact strain you have already had. (Just like you can get a cold, even after you have contracted a cold/had a cold virus before.)
