    I have a question concerning HPV. I have read on here that a person can pass HPV in 2 years, maybe sooner. Does that mean that the possibility of developing genital warts due to the HPV virus can pass as well?

    I read somewhere that it said you can never get ride of HPV (or maybe it was HSV now that I think about it???).

    It is not unusual that the immune system will clear HPV. Without this virus, one will not develop genital warts since it's the virus that causes these.

    The same cannot be said of HSV; however, many people experience few outbreaks from this.
