CAN TWO PEOPLE WITH HIV infected each other

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi YES they can. Re infection, if one person has resistance to medication and the other doesn't the re infection can cause a change in how the medications are working against the virus and may make them not work anymore and they would have to change medications. Two people with HIV can still have sex with one another they just definitely have to take precautions. Wearing condoms for sure!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
