Wink positive to negative

ok just wondering. If I was high risk in 2007 now in 2009 came back negative does that mean it totally cleared? It could show positive again? Does it hide? I should just be relieved but I am curious =) thanks...

Hi Tiggy!
Well it sounds like this question should be ask by your doctor. I am actually curious if it does go back. i think it will come back if you're expose again (like having another safe/unsafe sex). Remember there is no sure safe sex, no matter how you and your boy wrap it up with some gloves, there's still risk that you'll get it. I would assume it wont come back but it will if you are expose to it. When you find out the answer please share it to us.

thank you,
Jake

Re: positive to negative

HPV will be in your system for life, however if it cleared, it most likely will never cause you any harm, but my doc told me to make sure to use condoms so re infection does not occur.

Actually . . . I think the idea that you have this for life is falling out of favor with most HPV researchers. HPV can live in you body forever and can go domant and then reappear. But I think that is the exception rather than the rule. Also, I can't link it, but I reading this thing by a doctor discussing this issue. He basically described why whether or not you still have HPV is actually a very complicated question. What if you have a segment of HPV DNA only and not the whole thing?

I guess the "forever" part is that you can't ever really know when if if you are cured, so it is probably a good idea to at least act like you will have it forever.
