can out side ejaculation cause hiv transmission?

Feb 21, 2010

im hiv positive and my vira load is undetecteble someone told me that i can i have sex with a woman without a condom but i should ejaculate outside then the chance of hiv transmission is zero is that true?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Nope! Not true! HIV can be transmitted via precum.

Having an undetectable HIV plasma viral load for a considerable period of time decreases the risk of HIV transmission, but does not eliminate it. You can read much more about this topic in the archives of the forum on HIV prevention and safer sex. Have a look!

Continue to cover your stump before you hump, OK?

Are these good CD4 / immune cell numbers?
