Is HPV contagious throughout your entire life or can it actually go away? I am male?

My girlfriend has hpv and i have slept with her. Neither one of us knew. Now I need to know if I can get rid of it, and not be contagious eventually?
HPV DOES NOT go away. It's a virus that stays with you for life. It goes through 2 phases lytic and lysogenic. The virus stays in the lysogenic stage most of the time there are usually no symptoms in this phase. For unknown reasons something triggers the HPV to switch from the lysogenic cycle to the lytic cycle, it is this cycle that causes symptoms
no i dont think so ive never heard of that
You definitely need to see your doctor but I think it can be cured if detected early enough. Check out Some types can go away on their own without any treatment.
Possibly, but you may just be a carrier for cervical cancer. Go to, to see more.
The new thinking on HPV is that if you can go long enough without an outbreak, your body sheds the disease. The last time I checked, 10 years was considered the time period. If you stick to your treatment and don't have an outbreak for 10 years, you have shed the disease (all infected cells have been replaced by healthy cells via attrition) and you won't ever have another breakout.
