Risky Activity for spouses
Mar 10, 2002

My daughter has been HIV positive for 8 years. She married a year ago and just told her hustband when she had cervical cancer and had to have a hysterectomy 4 months after they married. Her CD4 count was down as low as 75. it is improving again with new medicine. She tells her husband that her viral load is not detectable which makes her risk of infecting him low. Is this true?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It is true that the lower a person's viral load, the less likely they are to transmit HIV to someone else, but the risk is NEVER zero, just small.
