Is HPV always contagious?

In most people, it is difficult to predict when HPV is no longer contagious or even present. Experts disagree on whether the body eliminates the virus or whether it is reduced to undetectable levels. Most people “cure” themselves—usually without ever knowing that they were infected.

Can you become reinfected with HPV?

In theory if you and your partner have been infected with HPV you should be immune to that type and so reinfection should not occur. However, studies have shown that natural immunity to HPV is poor and women can be reinfected with the same virus type[1][2].
