Thanks for posting your query.

According to American college of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), 20-30 percent of genital warts go away on their own without any treatment in a span of three months. Some may take months or even years to go away. Some don't go away spontaneously on their own. It is still not clear why some warts disappear spontaneously and others do not.

It is not the friction during sex that causes the warts to reappear. They reppear when there is a moist environment like during sex or there is any immune deficiency or fungal infection of the genital area. If your male partner has HPV genital warts, then they can be transmitted during sex and even reappear after sex.

For a proper homeopathic treatment of genital warts, it is best to consult competitive homeopathic doctor.

Other than the homeopathic treatment, there are many topical treatments available for genital warts and these include podophylliym resin, podofilox, 5-Fluorouracil and Imiquimod (Aldara) cream. You may discuss with your primary care provider about these medications and use them if you have not tried them. Electrical cautery, surgical excision, desiccation are other forms of treatment available to treat warts.

However no treatment is 100% effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back. It also is not possible to eliminate the primary infection (human papillomavirus) once it has occurred.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
