Hope you're having a fine day!
This is in response to married 12 years just diagnosed, terrifed.
I just thought it might be a good idea to stress to all the hiv-'s out there, in case they are feeling fearless, how extremely rare it is to be "immune" to hiv. In all likely hood this woman was not immune but rather very lucky.
Have a great day!

Possibly, but we can't deny the ever increasing evidence that the immune system and genetics plays in preventing and controlling HIV infection. MH
