Does the HPV stay in your system for life?

I read that sometime the virus could leave your body in about 4-5 years, is that so?

no its pretty much like a bad flu. the more you are able to make yourself puke after you get it, the faster it will clear out of your system

Nope.. Try using Immune Glory. Hear it works really good for HPV

It stays in your body forever, but unless you’ve got one of the bad ones that leads to cervical cancer, it doesn’t crop up again. That said, Gardisal is great and you should look into it.

HPV is yours for life. It will probably lie dormant in your system but there is always the chance of recurrence.

Yes, once you are infected the virus will stay in your body forever. Kinda like the flu…..once you catch the virus you are immune to that flu bug forever because it stays with you. If you get sick again, it is a different strain of the flu that has infected you.
People say the virus leaves in 4-5 years, but actually your immune system suppresses the virus after 4-5 years which means you probably will never show symptoms of it again and it is less likely that you will pass the virus on. But it is still there and could possibly cause symptoms again years down the road. Not likely, but it could.
This is why you can’t catch the same strain of HPV twice. It never leaves, so you can’t catch it again.
