Q and A


My viral load is undetectable, can I transmit HIV to my partner?

I have been on ARVs for more than two years now and my viral load is undetectable, with a CD4 count of 900. Can I transmit HIV to my partner should I have unprotected sex?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Because your viral load is undetectable you cannot transmit HIV to sexual partners when having sex without a condom. So yes, if you wish to have sex without a condom then you being positive won’t be an issue. Please see here for more info: http://i-base.info/u-equals-u/

    Hi Sadiq,

    If your viral load is undetectable then you cannot transmit HIV to her. This means that your wife doesn’t need to use PrEP. Please see here: http://i-base.info/u-equals-u/

    Issues with weight loss when your HIV is under control need to be discussed with a doctor.

    I have been using Tribuss for 6 months now. I have lost weight from 61kg to 53.7kg. I recently done my test, my viral load is less than 20. The doctor says everything is fine, but I’m worried about my weight loss! Do I have anything to worry About? I’m eating okay.
