Just a quick comment to the person who wondered if she could be resistant to HIV because she was unknowingly with a positive partner for 14 years and was not positive herself...You should err on the side of caution and assume that you are NOT resistant to the virus and chalk it up to LUCK. I am in the same boat she is in, married 14 years, we learned he was positive 2 years ago when Dx with PCP. I am neg too. I am interested in the studies on people who seem to have some resistance, and would like more info if you have it. In the meantime, I make no assumptions and latex has become a bigger part of my life than I ever thought it would be. Be careful, please. It could just be luck that has kept you HIV-free for all these years.
