has my mother a natural resistance?

Sep 6, 2009

Hello. My father died 20 years ago victim of HIV. Nobody knew that he was infected, we realized about it, a few weeks before his disease. My mother and him had an active sexual life, and even tried to have another kid. My mother claim that they had sex, 3 moths before he died, and no protection. My mother, my sister and me are not infected, and after 20 years, I still dont know if has my my mother natural resistance...have I?
