HPV symptom free for four years. Am I still infected?
Patient : Hi
I had HPV over 4 years ago. I had genital warts and cervical changes. The warts were removed and so were the precancerous cells. I have never had warts again and as of last year, my pap smear was normal. I've read that HP tends to go away on its own in a couple of years. Is it safe to assume that I no longer have HPV as I haven't had any symptoms in over 4 years?
