whom gave it whom

Aug 27, 2007

My partner and i were both recently(a month ago) diagnosed with HIV. we are not sure who gave it to who. my last test was two years prior to the one that i came out positive on. his was about a year ago. i had an unsafe experience the night before i started dating my current partner with a different man. he got tested once i told him i was Positive, and he came back negative. we had sex about 9 months prior to me and my lover's diagnosis of being positive. i also have recently developed thrush, and had an outbreak of anal warts. my CD4 count was 380, and my viral load was 500,000. my lover, has had no apparent symptoms since ive met him other than diareaha quite often. his CD4 count was 560, and viral load 57,000. i know it is not about blame, but for peace of mind i want to know who gave it to who. based on all this informatin, what is your opinion? Thanks,

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I couldn't say and wouldn't want to speculate.
