Brief Answer:
One would show signs of HPV 2 weeks to several months after contracting the infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask a Doctor service,

I carefully read your query and understand your concern.
HPV is a viral infection that has an incubation period of 2 weeks to 8 months. The incubation period is the time from getting the infection to the time a patient shows symptoms of the infection.

So, after getting infected, a patient may show symptoms of HPV after 2 weeks to some months, with most of them developing symptoms in 2-3 months.
On the other hand, not all patients develop symptoms (warts).

I hope this answers your query and is helpful to you. Let me know if I may assist you further.

Kind regards,
Dr. Antoneta Zotaj
