Re: HPV diagnosis
It can lie dormant for months or years, most people's bodies can get rid of HPV but some people go on to show symptoms (ie: genital warts, dysplasia, abnormal pap). I don't know how long I had HPV but I had genital warts and then found out I had dysplasia (abnormal cells) on my vulva area. I found out last year and I am 38 years old, been married for over 17 years. I have never, ever had an abnormal pap.
