Can HPV still go away in 2 yrs if both partners have it?

I got HPV from an ex who it turns out is bisexual, I found out after we broke up (he had ads on craigslist while dating me!)
Now that I have it my concern is this; I dont want to give it to anyone else, But I have heard that it dont always cure in 2 yrs or less. So never having sex again is doubtful... So If I DO end up with someone and give it to them on accident, will that stop mine from curing itself in 2 yrs or less if it was going to? I read you cant pass it back and forth... So does that mean if mine was going to cure within 2 yrs it still would, even if my partner still had it? I hope that Q makes sense. Also Im guessing I can give it to a guy possibly orally anally or vaginally not just vaginally right? Ive read up alot via google but having a hard time finding definitive answers.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
You can pass on the infection to your new partner. Consider taking the vaccination to prevent chances of progress to cancer cervix. Men are asymptomatic even if they have the infection, so even if your partner has had it you will not know and if he is already infected, the transmission will not make much difference (unless it is a different strain of virus). Consider getting started on definite treatment for the cure and reduction of viral load. Go ahead with regular PAP tests and gynecologist monitoring.
Take care.
