What are the risks of unprotected sex if both HIV positive

Jul 10, 2001

My partner and I about 6 months ago engaged in a three way sexual experience. That was the only sexual expirence that both of us had outside our realtionship. We both contracted HIV from that three way. I was wondering do him and I need to start using condoms now, if we are only having sex with one another? What risks do we run if we were both infected by the same person?

Response from Mr. Kull

A response to a similar question was posted yesterday. See "Risk of unprotected sex between HIV+ persons" (

The fact that you were both infected by the same person may or may not be important in the issue of reinfection. A greater understanding of the risks involved in HIV+ persons having unprotected sex with one another needs to be reached to answer your question adequately.
