There's a lot of misinformation out there, even among doctors. Skaterdave seems to have a pretty logical understanding of what we've all come to understand of HPV. Just remember, some doctors also confuse the traits of HPV with HSV. DON'T let them confuse or worry you. Do your own research. In summary, here's what I've learned in my case. I have HPV 53. Meaning potentially cancer causing if the body has trouble clearing it. Mine is oral and doesn't produce warts which means it's higher risk. Many sites consider this high risk, but 53 is unusual in that it seems to coincide with HIV positive subjects, which I've tested negative for years now. My wife tested negative for 53 vaginally, yet didn't take the oral "Orarisk" test to see if it existed orally. The synopsis is this. You can do what's necessary to protect your partner from it during sex, but even if they get it, their body will eventually clear it too. Because this is HPV, and not HSV. Once your body clears it you can never get that same number again and you will no longer be contagious to others. I've heard others here say that's incorrect. But reality is you're contagious when the body still has the virus it hasn't beat yet. It's not suppressing it like with HSV. Your body is attacking the HPV. There's a lot of debate as to if the body is suppressing it eventually or clearing it completely. A healthy immune system ABSOLUTELY WILL CLEAR IT. The question is, how long will your body take? Most research says 2 years on average to clear most variants. At which point you can request a retest. I hope this gives better peace of mind. Feel free to message me directly if you have further questions.
Can you elaborate on what you mean by 6? And did your mean low risk hpv?
