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.

Be well.

HIV+ positive & becoming pregnant
TO TEST OR NOT TO TEST, appt. next Monday
