As is the case with external (vulvar) warts, vaginal warts may be treated with cryotherapy (freezing) or TCA.
Couples who share HPV are not thought to be likely to ping-pong the virus back and forth in a cycle of reinfection - we're not aware of any data that indicate couples who share HPV and continue to have sex are more likely to have recurrences. Some studies suggest that condom use might help clear both the virus and associated lesions a bit more quickly, so this is an option to consider if you're sexually active whle warts are present. Ask your doctor what to do, and see if he or she is comfortable with you having sex with warts present.

. No one approach is best for every case, and it's not uncommon for TCA to be repeated. Here too, ask your doctor what is indicated if you have more warts. Treatment is based on factors such as size, location, number, and distribution of warts.
Warts do recur in some cases, and this is not uncommon. When they do recur, they show varying degrees of persistence. Some people may experience only one episode, while others may experience several. However, most people's immune systems, with time, seem to gain control over HPV, making recurrences less frequent and usually eliminating them eventually.
I'm sorry this has been so difficult for you. We understand that the emotional impact of HPV can be greater than the physical discomfort the virus may cause. Experiencing feelings of fear and confusion are natural; however, these feelings can be managed and overcome. You have taken an important step by educating yourself. Please keep in mind that we speak to couples each day for whom HPV has become nothing more than a minor inconvenience in their relationship.
I hope this helps, and that you'll post again soon.
All the best,
