HIV Transmission

Mar 4, 2012

Hi, I am growing confused on some recent studies, where it is stated that if you had an undetectable VR for at least 6 months, Therapy adherence ongoing and no other STD, there is no risk of transmitting HIV to a partner through unprotected sex. Is this correct, or just wishfull thinking, in reality jeopardizing HIV prevention. Thanks

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, No need to be confused. This is correct. There are now more than just one study confirming this. This is very great news for not only folks already living with HIV but for those who are not. It is a great prevention message to know your status and your partners and to get into care and on treatment if you are living with HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
