Please tell me is there any risk for her. And when should you advice to do check up for confirm report. Is 2 minutes are enough to transmit the virus. Please help.

Response from Dr. Henry

Odds for transmission of HIV from one vaginal sexual encounter from HIV+ male to HIV- female when make is doing well on HIV treatment is very low (likely << 1% risk). KH

do HIV meds adversely affect vein health or access? (HIV + hemophilia)
cd4 and viral loud going up.
