In brief: Depends on…

Whether conization eliminated all of virus.
Was follow-up done to check for presence of more virus? If no virus present, u can't pass what doesn't exist. If any virus still present, then it can be passed. Virus can also exist in mouth, throat, anus—areas that also need to be checked.
