My viral load is 20, can I transmit?

My viral load is 20. When I was having sex with my boyfriend the condom burst. Is he at risk?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Because your viral load is undetectable, you cannot transmit HIV through sexual intercourse. Please see here for more info:

    Hi Precious,

    If your husband is negative this would indicate that you were positive before you entered into a sexual relationship with him.

    Hi Berrium, i-Base doesn’t answer questions about HIV testing and transmission. That’s because all questions have already been answered here.
