I never even knew i had HPV until i was pregnant with my daughter back in 2013. As i was pregnant i had broke out with warts, the doctor said it was because my antibodies were fighting for the baby and not for me and they would go away after i had my daughter. After I had my daughter they went away on their own, it only took about a month or so for them to clear up . It has now been 4 years and i have had no other symptoms nor have i had any more warts pop up at all . I have read that your body can fight the virus and it is gone after 2 years, i have read that you have it for life . I have just read so many different things about it and i am confused . Could it be gone ? If i get pregnant again will it show back up ? I plan on having another child , i am with someone else now, I just would like to know if anyone has any personal stories or professional opinion on the matter.
See your doctor for advice. It's true that your body can fight off HPV itself, but how to know whether the virus is still here or not. HPV can remain in your body for months or even years without causing symptoms. If you're planning to get pregnant, you should have a Pap test to be sure you're not infected with the virus. No link has been found between HPV and miscarriage, premature delivery, or other pregnancy complications. And, the chance of transmitting the virus to the baby is considered very low. But, you should discuss with your doctor for official advice.
