I’ve just resently started treatment, is my partner at risk?
18 December 2018. Related: All topics, HIV transmission.
I’ve been dating a guy for 4 year and I’m HIV positive. We’ve never used a condom and he’s circumcised. Is it possible that he could still have contracted HIV from me? I’ve just resently started medication, this was because I’m pregnant.
Thanks for getting in touch.
If you’ve been having sex without a condom when you weren’t on treatment there is a risk that your partner is HIV positive. Therefore, he is going to need to test. This is important for this own health.
If his test result is negative, this is great. However, until your viral load is undetectable you’re going to need to use condoms because there is a risk of transmission, this is even if your partner is circumcised.
