Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, if both of these tests are negative then so are you, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again.

There are those that have had sex with a positive partner and never became infected. If you go through the above testing time and the tests come back negative then so are you. What you need to do, like my husband who is HIV negative and I'm positive, is have protected sex and he is tested every 6 months. What you need to decide is if you can put the stress aside to continue in the relationship, if not it is not fair to you or your partner to continue if you are always going to be worrying about becoming positive.

We know that if your partner is on medication for HIV and their viral load is undetectable than the risk of transmission is reduced by up to 96% and when you add protection to the picture the risk reduces even more.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
