Sexual Activity

It is important to notify your partner of your condition and use protection.

Recovery Time

HPV cannot be treated or cured. Recent studies show that some very healthy people may be able to beat the disease. However, there is no definite timeline for that process. For the remainder of patients, they will probably be carriers of HPV for life.
