Hello, I was recently diagnosed a month ago with HPV, the cervical type. I have heard and read countless places that eventually the body can clear itself of the HPV virus. My question is, what is it about the HPV virus that allows the body to rid it unlike the herpes virus. I realize they are different viruses with different symptoms, but I guess I am asking how the HPV virus can be cleared.

Thanks

Often, the immune system itself clears the virus.
