HPV and Hysterectomy

I am a sexually active 53 yr old woman. I do have different sex partners. I had a vaginal hysterectomy 15 yrs ago but have still gotten regular pap smears. I just had my most recent with blood work taken for any STD/AIDS. The results from pap smear came back normal, no lesion, warts and no STD's except showing positive for HPV. The nurse going through the test results said that at my age and having no cervix I should not worry, that it is very common. I do not want to spread this to any partners, what should I do to prevent that? She also said that it cures itself in time, so how long will I need to wait before testing again? Or should I get a second opinion from another doctor.  Do I need to disclose this info to any new sexual partners or will condoms help?
Thanks for your help....
