Hiv+ woman and negitive partner

Oct 9, 2011

I am A positive hetero female. Doing very well on the meds since 1998 when I had PCP.My T's are 640 and very low VL 2000.Can I still infect a -man should a condom break or have an accident .. I heard no..

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I don't think you want to prove the negative here and go without condoms. A detectable viral load in the blood can translate to detectable viral load in the genital tract.

CD 3,8 and 45
Recently Infected/UD VL/Low CD4 part 2
