Faithful wife positive but husband negative

Nov 14, 2009

I would like to know how as a wife I could have become positive and my husband negative when I have been faithful to him all the time. We both tested negative six years ago and were using the condom even before that as a birth control mechanisim. He has tested more than three times since December 2008 and all the time his results show that he is negative. I stated my meds (Truvada & Stoctrin) one year ago because my count was 190 but thankfully it is now at more than 500. He has been very supportive but I am scared of having sex with him in case the condom breaks and he gets infected. We are baffled!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Sorry, can't answer the why or how questions.

Is this a "blip"?
