I don't necessarily agree with that. I think you could still be contagious.

You haven't proven to have cleared the infection

You need more time and an HPV test

is this helpful?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
