I’ve been positive since birth, I’m on treatment, can I transmit?
If someone that has been HIV positive since birth and been on antiviral medications, what are the possibilities that they will transmit HIV?
Thanks for getting in touch.
As long a person is on treatment and their viral load is undetectable they cannot transmit HIV when having sex without a condom. Please see here:
This however does not apply if a woman were to breastfeed as there is a risk, albeit small of transmission.
