No HPV outbreaks for years. Am I still contagious?

Resolved Question:

Hi, I got diagnosed with HPV (causes GW) 6 years ago. I had a baby 2 1/2 years ago and lost both if my grandparents and had absolutely No outbreak. Am I still contagious or has my immune system fought it off? I did get it treated when I found out I had it. All Pap smears also come back normal. Thanks so much! :)

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
Normally most patients do get a recurrence once every year or once in 6 months or so. In some patients, after the active phase, the disease never really shows up again.
Since you had a disease-free period for the last 2 1/2 years, it is highly unlikely you will get any recurrences in the future. It definitely seems like the infection has cleared up.
Hope this was helpful,
Feel free to discuss further.

Patient replied :

So with being 6 years wih absolutely nothing, I probably won't pass it on to anyone?? Because like I said, I only had that one out break 6 years ago, nothing since. :)

Yes, if he did not have warts in the last 6 years, there is 99 % chance you won't transmit the infection to anyone.
There is always that 1-2 % risk with viral infection, that it may show up later.
