Any one out there ever had genital warts? or HPV? The Center for Disease control has made statements in '08 that it typically clears itself within up to 2 years. More people clear it in less than a year.. It also says that 80% sexually active people will have one or more strain in their lifetime. So with statistics like these and considering it's the most common STD, anyone out there willing to be open and honest? Also note, that some people will never show symptoms and others might, so based on a colscopy or visual inspection, anyone have or had it? I'll be the first and say I have, and I've only been with 3 people.
