Aimee recently wrote in to ask me this question about genital warts:
You said it has been 4 years since you’ve seen any sign of warts.
I’ve done research, and it seems that even if the warts are not visible (they seem to be gone), they are still in your blood stream? I could have read wrong but if so, having sex may bring them back if unprotected?
I’m just thinking in future terms for when I have a husband…
Have you had unprotected sex and still no sign of them?
You think the blood stream thing is wrong?
Your research is obviously a lot deeper than mine was before I stumbled onto your website.
And here’s roughly the same question from Nathan:
I understand that your report has helped thousands of people get rid of genital warts which is great! But i still don’t understand just because the warts are gone for good that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are hpv free, does it? I mean just because the lesions are gone that doesn’t mean that the person is not contagious anymore, right? The only thing that is really changing is that there are no more symptoms of the virus. Does your report go beyond just clearing up the warts and possibly making the person noncontagious?
I’ve gotten this question a LOT over the years, so I wanted to post an official answer here on the blog.
If I discover new information about this topic, I’ll update you but to the best of my current knowledge, it works like this:
Once you get rid of the genital warts using my report, the HPV virus is still in your system. For some people it stays there indefinitely and for others it will leave them after awhile.
So what’s the difference between these 2 types of people?
In my opinion, it seems to be the strength of their immune system. So that is one reason I have the 2 anti-viral immune boosting techniques in the second half of my report. One was sent to me by an OB-GYN a couple years back and the other I got from a respected panel of doctors doing anti-viral research.
After you get rid of the warts, the next best thing you can do is help your immune system – because even though there is no treatment that directly attacks the HPV virus, the power of your immune system can make the virus go dormant.
But the problem is, even if it leaves you there’s no real way of knowing WHEN it does. Based on statistics from people keeping in touch with me, the best time frame I’ve been able to come up with is 3 months – if you get rid of all the genital warts and wart roots and do the immune boosting regimen and don’t have anything try to come back for 3 months, then it should be gone.
For me, from the time I got rid of any visible signs to the time I had sex with anyone other than the original girl, was around 8 months. So that’s a lot longer than 3. And that girl as well as anyone since has never had any problems with pap tests or any warts or any visible signs at all. So I think during that 8 month period is when it happened for me. Exactly when is impossible to tell.
The main way they spread is direct skin to skin contact so having no visible genital warts for a long time cuts the risk down a LOT. But if you had an opening in your skin somewhere it could still be spread during that “limbo time” before your body gets rid of it. As for spreading it through other fluids like semen, I’m still not sure if HPV can be spread that way. Others can, but I’m not sure if HPV behaves that way or not. As soon as I have reliable information on this from a trusted source, I will report here and let you know. As of right now, most of the evidence suggests HPV lives in the skin.
In the meantime, my personal opinion is to always err on the side of caution and always use a condom, especially with someone new.
