      #270969 - 03/05/13 12:52 PM

Hi, i have been with my boyfriend for 5years...we have had unprotected sex allllll this time....ive had 3 misscarriages due to my thyroid...ive tested for hiv with a rna test a eliza and a viral load level i am negative...he has always had a undetectable viral load..always under 90... But today his doc called and said he needs to go back to get checked because his viral load measured 367 and his cd4 level is 768 she said it wasnt bad but hust wantes to know why it went up...because of me not being able to have a baby we have decided we are not gonna keep trying...if ur asking urself....why is she having unprotected sez with this man?.....just a year ago i found out of his status...i left him i was very mad but now i see why he wouldnt tell me...and why he would ask us to use condoms and taking care of myself...i never thought of that since i would get checked every 6 months...as of today i still dont understand howww im stil negative altough we are now using protection and nkt trying to get pregnant...im worried about his viral load? Is 367 very high? Is his cd4 levels okay?

It's not high but it's not undetectable either. Though your tests always came back neg. I would continue to " Knock on Wood" and thank God that your man was considerate to use condoms even though he probably knew eventually you'd want to know why . Just keep loving that man and enjoy life. And if you can't get pregnate perhaps you may consider adopting some day

Well as far as what I have learned the CD4 count is not bad but the concern is why it went up if he is taking his medication. When I found out that my husband was positive, his viral load was over 100 thousand and by the grace of god I did not contract the disease. A person that is heathly will have a CD4 count of 1000 or higher. Once the CD4 count drops to 200 or below that is full blown aids. My husbands CD4 count was 297 when i found out now he is undetectable and the count went up to in the 400 range. You should never have unprotected sex, not even to have a baby. Just because you have not trasmitted the disease before does not make you immune to it. If you were to get pregnant and be infected you could pass it to your baby. You really need to go see a specialist about this disease so that you can keep your self safe. This disease is hard to live with and people die from it every day. It is a very scary disease. You can have his sperm washed and did IVF to have a baby. Don't risk your life.
