Ok,so my girlfriend got diagnosed with hpv which probably was contracted from me. She got her infection surgically removed and she says that it is gone for good. As I've seen on those HPV commercials, there is usually no re-occurance for women if not exposed to it again. What about men? I have gone to my doctor many times to have,what looked like a wart, either frozen off or burned off, as well as medication to apply to it. Other ones have appeared as well. But one tiny wart always comes back,about 1 mm in diameter.I've had one doctor a long time ago tell me it was a mole, and another tell me it was a wart. The one that told me it was a wart said that once it is gone,it is gone for good unless exposed again-a Kaiser doctor. If there can be re-occurences,what are the factors that could make it come back,other than re-exposure? I would like to be as safe as I can sexually,so I would like to know the information regarding this.
