|HIV- in a relationship with HIV+
Oct 15, 2011
I'm curious whether or not there is a high transmission risk among unprotected oral sex if I, a female, am HIV- and my partner, a male is positive. He has an undetectable viral load, so I'm curious -- what is the risk without a condom and further more, what is the risk when swallowing?

Although of low probability, infection is still possible.
