will atripla be ineffective for me?
Oct 19, 2010
My partner and I are both poz. he has started ATRIPLA, we have unprotected sex. will I develop an immunity to ATRIPLA? Is there a chance of ATRIPLA residue in his semen? I had my first Increse in Tcell and reduction in Vload, the only thing different is he is on meds now!
Response from Dr. Henry
If he achieves and maintains undetectable HIV levels on Atripla then unlikely that you would become infected with Atripla resistant virus. Safe sex is recommended to minimize superinfection or acquisition of other germs such as hep B/C/HPV/KS associated virus, GC, and syphilis. KH
