HPV still contagious?

Help me understand this specific HPV situation regarding an intimate female friend. (I'm a guy.)

My friend says that she has abnormal pap smears--but that she has cleared the HPV virus. How can she know that she's cleared the virus, and is this likely?
Right now, we're not having sex, we're limiting genital contact, and I'm not performing oral sex on her. But I'd like to--without wondering whether or not I've caught it or cleared it or I'm contagious for next three to twelve months to infinity.
What are the questions I should ask her about procedures, tests, etc., so I can sanity check what she's told me and better understand her HPV status and whether I can still catch it from her?
