Can I bareback my pos bf?

Mar 29, 2005

My bf is HIV pos X 10 years and on meds with some hiv dementia..i have been pos for 4 mths on no I at risk barebacking him as a top in catching another strain of hiv...would a resistance test be warranted on his part to rule out that he is not resistance to any meds..i had a reistance test and have wild type virus with no resistance. Thanks very much

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, you would be placing yourself and your partner at risk for superinfection. Resistance testing will not decrease these risks. Read through the archives related to superinfection (reinfection) for additional information. Condoms remain essential, even when both partners are positive.
