When people get condyloma acuminata (HPV or warts) it is hard to know if it is a new infection or an old infection that has come back.
We know that about 90% of HPV will clear within 2 years. HPV can stay dormant in some cells and may never show up again, but it can also return.
Pregnancy and some illnesses may be a factor, but sometimes warts just start growing again with no clear cause.
