My Partner is Posive I am negative.

Nov 24, 2011

I discovered my wife was positive from a previous relationship after two years of unprotected sex 16 Elissa tests and two Pcr Dna tests I am still negative. We now protect but can someone please explain this to me as my doctors are dodging the answere.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

HIV is not transmitted during every sexual episode and when it is, an infection does not necessarily take place . Furthermore, the risk is lower for the insertive partner. Those things combined are the reason that you (luckily) were not infected.

I hope this helps.

In health, Richard

p.s. We have an archived forum called Mixed-HIV-Status Couples that I think will be a great resource for you as well.

Rude answer and polite question
