Can a women with HIV infect another women

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Though it does carry the lowest risk it is possible. Of course one of the women have to have HIV in order for that to happen. So ensuring that both partners are HIV negative is important. Then if one or both have HIV then the usual precautions need to happen. Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. If toys are being used they need to be cleaned between exchanges between partners.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
