2 women still very much in Love
Mar 13, 2003

What are the chances of a lesbian couple passing off HIV to each other.

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

The chances are very low. However, sexual transmission between women has been reported. For more information on how HIV can be transmitted, you should consult the Transmission section of the "AIDS Basics" section of this web site.

Tested Positive, partner tested Negative. Is that possible?
can my child be hiv possitive?
