How fast can i start transmitting HIV
Jun 7, 2011

Can i transmit HIV to my partner after one day of possible infection

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thanks for your question, It takes a few days for the virus to enter the cells, spread to the lymph nodes and then spill into the blood and genital secretions. So after 1 day no you would not be able to transmit virus to another person.
