Will my partner get HPV when I don't have active infection? He uses a condom & I tested negative 2 months ago for lesions / inflection (CIN). Thanks

In brief: Condom helps

Unfortunately,there is no way to know when you are shedding HPV virus, especially for those with internal disease and no visible markers (warts).
There is possibility of transmission during shedding, and barriers like condoms reduce but do not eliminate the possibility of transfer.
