how long does it take hpv to leave your body

If you have hpv and have gotten leep surgery I wanna know if hpv ever leaves your body? I have started working out 4 days a week have added boat and ensure plus any nutrition. Drink I can find to help build my immuse system. Am also on antidepressant. Pills but I feel once my weight gets back to normal and I keep working out and eating right. Maybe my immsue system will get stronger

Yup. Pretty much you're on the right track. Take vitamins too. Multivitamins and be as happy as you can. Sleep well and don't stress over the hpv. Theyvsay it takes up to two years I believe for your body to rid of the hpv but doesn't mean it definitely will. But if you are working for it I am sure it will work. Good luck and God bless :)

Ask your doctor about vaginal prolapse and physical exertion. I am only 33 and it is happening to me. They may tell you some racist crap about how it doesn't happen to women of African decent and happens to White and Asian women. What you don't know could leave you incontinent.

I don't think it ever leaves,it stays dormant until your body's immune system is down.what a person who has it can do is,eat right and exercise,to keep the body strong

I've had it for two years now and my dr gave the option of waiting 6 months or do the leep, I thought I figured out what I was going to do and now I'm not sure.

I agree with Christine47. That's what my docs said and what I have read, too. Since it is a virus, it is always there. When not detected, the viral counts r low and it is basically inactive. When u test positive, it is more worrisome we the viral count is higher.

My pap showed ascus and the colposcopy showed viral changes. I scheduled an appt with gynecolgist oncologist for the 31st. I will make my decision after that. I'm very confused, didn't like that my dr gave me the two choices like that
