It’s great that your HPV has cleared up, that means that you are not having symptoms that accompany an outbreak.
The flip side: HPV may not be visible but it is still transmissible.
You should always use a latex barrier with sexual activity of any kind.
Barriers:
Latex condoms should be used for penetrative sex and male oral sex.
A latex condom cut lengthwise for female oral sex or dental dams if they are available.
A plastic wrap (popularly called Saran wrap) can also be used to prevent contact with oral mucosa.

Unprotected sex is never a good idea, whether or not there are STI’s involved. However, especially in your case do not have any type of unprotected sexual activity. HPV is most often transmitted when the carrier has no signs or symptoms of the virus. So even though you have no visible warts, the virus is still in your system and can be transmitted to your partner with or without sexual intercourse.
