|Could he really still be negative!?
Sep 8, 2004
I am a HIV+ woman since 1999. My husband and I were having unprotected sex all during this 5 years. He is still testing negative is this possible? I have since insisted that we use condom.
Response from Dr. Lee
Yes. 1)The male is always at a lower risk than the female. 2)You may have had a low viral level for these years which also reduces the transmission risk. 3) He's lucky.
