Just to let you know, the person who answered you, has been corrected about her facts on hiv. I have it and have had it for years. Hpv can go away on its own but you will need to do follow ups with your doctor and boost your immune system. Genital herpes can be laser removed by a doctor. If the hpv persists after a while it can lead to cervical cancer. But as long as you go to the doctor, they wont let that happen. You can get the abnormal cells removed, but you will still need follow ups to make sure they don't come back. You can get pamphlets on hiv at your local health department. It could take years for the hiv to go away. So just be patient and let your body and doctor do their work. It sounds scary but about 80% of women in the world have it. When you find out the facts, you wont be so scared. Take it from a girl that actually has it and not a woman that wants to blurb for points. It on this because a friend just found out she has it and went on here to ask and got some weird responses, like from rayoflight and I got on here to tell the truth. I hope I helped you. If you need anymore facts just ask me.
I have HAD HPV and it DOES go away on its own. I found out I had HPV while I was pregnant with my first pregnancy, and no, it does not pass on to the infant. There are many different strands of HPV some more severe than others. Some strands, like the one I was diagnosed with show NO symptoms but can lead you to have abnormal cells in the cervix which can lead to cervical cancer. When picked up by a doctor through a pap-smear they can treat it. Other strands show symptoms such as genital warts. Men show no symptoms. HPV can go away with out treatment, your bodies immune system fights it off for you. I know because I HAD it and this is specifically what my GYNECOLOGIST told me. Yes HPV is an STD but it does go away on its own. Not all STD's are incurable, just like Syphilis and Chlamydia can be treated and cured. People do some research before answering and go get informed by a doctor before giving advice.
Most researchers say that it takes up to 2 years for HPV to go away but that depends on the person some take longer while others can build up immunity against it faster.. It all depends on your lifestyle and immunity. My advice would be to each right, exercise, take all your vitamins, and try to boost your immune system up as much as possible and it will go away sooner than later.
It takes about 2 years, it does go away
Will hpv go away on it's own?
Jessi4ever, before you try to answer an important questions maybe you should know the difference between hpv and hiv. You said you have hiv and that you can get pamphlets about hiv at your local health department.
Yeah it doesn't go away it may become dormant and you wont see any symptoms for a while but it will always be in your body and you will always be contagious.
HPV is an STD and does not go away, it becomes dormant. Research more and talk w/your physician.
