Don't listen to the idiot who responded earlier. He is a part of a group of people who deny that AIDS actually exists.

As to your question, I don't have any figures, but if an HIV- man has repeated sex with an HIV+ female WITH CONDOMS, the risk is EXTREMELY low. I read a study once that followed sero-discordant (1 HIV neg & 1 HIV poz) couples who used condoms regularly. I believe that after 18 months, ZERO of the neg. partners had tested positive. I need to check up on if this is still going on, but that it what I can recall. It is VERY hard for a man to get it from a woman, but it IS possible. For example- If a man preforms oral sex on a woman a day or two before her menstrual cycle, there may be traces of blood near the cervix. This is very rare, but again, possible. Also, there is HIV in the vaginal fluids, but it is usually a very small amount, and saliva generally kills it before it can get to his bloodstream. Basically, the negative man needs to stay away from the positive woman's blood. That's the safest rule to follow.

Hope this helps.
