Since your partner is undetectable, the likelihood of transmission is definitely lowered. Also, because you are the insertive partner, that further reduces your risk. However, I must advise you that by engaging in unprotected penetrative sex, you are putting yourself at risk. Using a condom for each and every act of penetrative sex is one of the best ways to protect yourself. Whether or not you decide barebacking is worth the risk is up to you.
