Are there reported cases?

Sep 12, 2012

Thanks for your answer. Are there reported cases of hiv transmission via breastmilk to adults?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The risk of HIV transmission via breast milk to an adult remains a theoretical risk. Learn more from this previous answer given by our former Forum Expert, Dr. Bob: transmission to adults via breast milk.

In health,


Could my SO be infected 10 years after? Should she get tested?
can i get STD or HIV?
