How can me and my child be negative?

May 27, 2012

My partner and I were together for about a year and was having unprotected sex the whole time. After the relationship ended I found out I was pregnant and he was HIV positive. I have been tested 3 times and my daughter was only tested when she was released from the hospital after birth (I think). How can we be negative for HIV given he is positive?

Response from Mr. Vergel

He may have had low or no HIV viral load in his semen due to effective antiretroviral therapy.
