You have a moral obligation to tell anyone you sleep with, even if it is dormant. That is a very personal decision that you should not make for someone else. He needs to be able to decide for himself if he wants to risk getting HPV from you. You can not make that choice for him. Talking to your doctor sounds like a great idea.
