About 2 months ago I discovered that I had genital warts. I went to the gynocologist and he performed a routine Pap smear. My results from the Pap smear came back normal. I have been receiving TCA treatments for my gential warts, and everything seems to be clearing up. My question is, since my Pap smear was normal does that mean I have the HPV virus? I read online and talked with my doctor, and he reassured me that with time the virus will go away on its own. How long does the virus stay in the body until is goes away? I'm very nervous and scared about this all.
