Most cases of genital warts go away on their own within 2 to 6 months depending on how severe the genital warts are.

In some rare cases genital warts can last as long as 1 year to 2 years without treatment.

If you leave the genital warts untreated they can spread and grow into large clusters so it's best to get the genital warts treated as soon as possible.

You can buy some over the counter genital wart remover or go to your doctor and get a prescription ointment to help get rid of the genital warts.

A doctor can also freeze or burn off the genital warts which is a good option in either case to get rid of the genital warts.

The genital warts can come back especially if you still have the genital warts virus.
