hi, would it be possible for someone to transmit visible warts to you, when they have none present themselves. ..also once the visible warts have been treated can you pass these to a new partner.

thanks jipsy

Hi Jipsy,

http://www.ashastd.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=394 will take you to a link that discusses HPV transmission over the long term.

It is possible to transmit HPV even without visible symptoms. Removing warts may lower the risk of transmission, but doesn't eliminate it.

Most HPV infections do clear naturally and while it cannot be proven, many experts believe that the risk of transmission decreases in one who has gone several months, or a year or more, with no additional warts, and at that point might even be considered unlikely. Again, proving this definitively remains elusive.

I hope this helps. Post anytime you have questions.

Best,
Fredo
