|Transmission by gums
Mar 1, 2006
I have found out that my partner has got hiv from me because of his gums. We only had unpro oral. Apparently there are anti bodies showing but not viral yet, what does this mean. does it mean that he was just unlucky and there was only a minute amout of viral that has infected him?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
If he's already HIV antibody positive and doesn't have a dectable viral load, this probably means he's one of the fortunate (but unlucky) persons who has a very low level of virus in his blood. A follow up HIV viral load should confirm this.
Good luck, BY
Dr. Young, What do you make of this?
