QUESTION & ANSWER
How long does it take for HPV to show symptoms?
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection symptoms can develop weeks, months or even years after sexual contact with an infected person. Some types of HPV cause warts, which can appear on the genitals, anus, and nearby parts of the body. Other types can cause cervical and other cancers, which often take years, even decades, to develop after a person gets HPV.
