Dear Doctor, I am a gay man with hiv and my doctor has said that my -ve CMV is unusual. Does this mean I am more at risk should I get this disease now or in the future? What can I do to avoid CMV
Response from Dr. Feinberg
IT is unusual to be gay, HIV+ and CMV-, because CMV can be transmitted by close physical contact. However, it does happen and you are one of the lucky ones. There is no foolproof way to avoid getting CMV, but if you rigorously follow safe sex practices, that's your best bet.
