Is HIV transmission probable if I have unprotected anal sex with an HIV negative partner and my viral load has been undetectable for over 10 years and my CD4>600?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi There are many studies out now that state that someone living with HIV on medication with an undetectable viral load the chances of HIV transmission reduce by 96%. The study is HPTN 052, you can look it up and read it. But it is definitely a good sign for prevention and protection of our partners. It is possible but the chances are so very small.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
