Have HPV...when am i not contagious?

Yesterday I was diagnosed with HPV (human papillomavirus), the one that causes genital wart. Lucky me. I'm not a slut, or unsafe, so please keep any rude comments to yourself (for those of you who are more superior then I). I've scoured the internet for info, that my Dr, didn't give me....An so I'm wondering...After the removal of said wart, am I still contagious?
Answers:    Lily is 100% right with her answer...I have a similar case to you and hold been researching for the same answer for months now.....I enjoy talked to 6 different doctors and gotten alot of different answer but after a lot of research on the web and chitchat with some important doctors at UCLA i have cram... that Hpv (warts too) is usually (91% of the time) cleared within 2 years to a person with a condition immune system..No they are not 100% percent sure you are not contagious anymore but the whole UCLA medical team that i spoke with said they be 99.9% sure that if the levels drop so low they can be detected your no longer contagious... SO try to wait 2 years to be safe... pious luck and i hope you clear the virus...eat healthy and try in build your immune system to confrontation the virus
You will always be a owner, and therefor may be able to transmit HPV even when not having an outbreak or not aware of an outbreak. You also can possibly have recurrences whenever you immune system is lowered (stress, bug, etc.), and so have small areas of warts without knowing it. Additionally, even if you use a condom, you can still transmit it to areas that are not covered by the condom, which can afterwards spread.
he less negative side, the majority of sexually active adults own it. Men can have it and still test negative unless they are have an outbreak.
You'll never know for sure. There are over 100 different kind of HPV and when people have an out break, the warts are highly tiny and can be on the underside of your penis or inside of the woman's vagina. Wish I could give you a more peaceful answer. Source(s): Retired nurse epidemiologist
Yes your still contagious and may be forever although some studies sugest that with a good imune system you can fight sour the disease for good. Which is good news.

It's earth-shattering to remember that over 80% of people will end up with this disesea within their lifetime so it's not really that big of a deal. You do have a low risk strain when it comes to cancer but remember that you can still contract a high risk one at any time so newly make sure to get regular check ups and play safe.

yes, you are! virus will stay in your body forever! you can not get rid of it!

if you really want to acquire rid of genital warts forever then you should know that you can remove genital warts by surgery, freezing, laser, sharp or cream but genital warts can reappear again and again because genital warts appears when your immune system is weak!

HPV is the virus that cause genital warts. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop genital warts. These wart can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It largely depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system system your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of genital warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more stout food, more vitamins and more sport activities! (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food refuse, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables.
Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juice & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute wander - then - do the same thing again contained by the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast day by day. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast feast. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to hand over you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea)

in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that get rid of genital warts comparatively fast and makes you consistency more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! It works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts + it help to prevent cervical, penile, anal and etc cancer because HPV virus in 70% cases cause cancer!

and of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).
orked immensely fast and still works for me because I do not have genital wart outbreaks anymore and my papsmear is still normal!

I do not know if any pharmacies take Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

The advantage of Wartrol over other pure treatments for genital warts is that, since it is taken orally, it also acts on invisible and internal genital wart that CAN NOT BE treated by other creams and natural remedies.

Removing the manifestation of the wart does not remove the virus.

Perhaps we are not contagious after a year, two or three...however research has shown that the virus can reoccur years after the initial infection.

The American Social Health Association recommends disclosure of all STI beside a new sex partner. You cannot guarantee that you will not share your present HPV infection with a new sex partner….
citizens do carry HPV…it is also inportant to remember that you can acquire new HPV types with a hot sex partner.

If in all the virus always leaves the body after a year or two…why do we entail a preventive vaccine…why do we need a therapeutic vaccine...to help treat HPV …why are billions of dollars spent treating HPV?

HPV can be contracted from one partner, remain dormant, and later later be unknowingly transmitted to another sexual partner.

The virus can remain in the body for weeks, years, or even a lifetime, giving no sign of its presence. Or a genital HPV infection may produce warts, lesion, or cervical abnormalities after a latent period of months or even years
is simply no way to find out how long a particular infection has be in place, or to trace it back to a particular partner.
. Myth: Treatment of wart means they are no longer contagious.
Unfortunately, medical opinion is not settled on this point. The closest to a consensus might be phrased as, "Don't be too sure."
Transmission of HPV poses a major confront to researchers, not only because it involves sexual behavior, which people may or may not feel free to speech about, but also because HPV's long and variable period of latency make it virtually impossible to trace back to a specific partner.
considering the infectiousness of treated or untreated warts, therefore, researchers must nose-dive back on indirect observations and on reasoning from what they do know about this virus. Some specialists think that removing genital wart may lower the risk of transmission, since it "de-bulks" the areas of tissue that contain infectious particles. But since the area surrounding any marked warts is also likely to contain infectious HPV particles, removing the wart cannot eliminate the risk.
A person may have flawless reasons for wanting his or her genital warts removed--they may be uncomfortable physically or psychologically. But removing wart cannot guarantee that the risk of transmission is removed.

American Social Heath Association website
tment for genital warts can reduce HPV infection, but whether the treatment results within a reduction in risk for transmission of HPV to sex partner is unclear. The duration of infectivity after wart treatment is unknown

Once cells are invaded by HPV, a latency (quiet) period of months to years may take place.
y cases, genital warts fail to respond to treatment or come back even after an initial perfect response.
oReappearance of abnormal cells on the cervix of women is not altered by treatment of their sexual partners.
oRecurrence rates of genital wart are greater than 50% after one year and have been attributed to the following factors:
Recurrent infection from a sexual partner
sistence of the virus surrounded by the surrounding skin, in the hair follicle, or in sites that are missed by the treatment used
Deep lesion or lesions that cannot be detected
With proper treatment, genital wart outbreaks of usually can be controlled. However, the warts frequently reappear after treatment. Even after you have be treated for HPV, you may still infect others.
HPV can be passed from person to person even when there are no distinct warts or other symptoms

Most people get HPV just more or less as soon as they start having sex. Having HPV makes you normal, not a slut or unsafe. By the agency, condoms do not prevent you from getting HPV.

You are probably going to get a bunch of answers from people who say HPV is "forever" and you will never stop anyone contagious. Really? So I'm still contagious for that wart I had on my hand when I was a child? All wart are caused by HPV you know. SOME people, a small minority, remain HPV positive forever.

Once you get the warts removed and a few months be in motion by without recurrence, consider yourself cured.
