Hi i was diagnosef with hpv over 5 yrs ago and while i go regularly to my gyno for annual checkups, she’s always told me that the virus goes away on its own. Im 53, will it take longer to go away because im older? Is there anything i can do nutritionally to help?
JA: How old is she? What symptoms is she having?
Customer: Im 53 and have no symptoms.
JA: When was her last pap test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?
Customer: 6 months ago and no irregularities

No ...i’ll stick to the txt.

Thank you for your patience.

Yes, HPV usually goes away in about 2 years. But a low nutritional level or poor health may cause the HPV to remain longer. It is not related to age but to the health status.

Please take a multivitamin supplement to improve your immunity. Regular exercises and meditation also help in boosting the immunity.

I hope this helps.
