Question

If a HIV negative man comes inside a HIV positive woman what are the risks to the man?

What is the risk if a negative man having sex with a positive woman uses a condom but then when the man is about to come he takes off the condom and he comes inside of the woman? Will the man be infected?

Answer

Thank you for your question.

There will always be a risk with any form of unprotected sex even if it the time that the sex is unprotected is short. However, the level of risk will vary depending on several factors such as whether the positive person is on treatment, their viral load, whether either person has any STIs or cuts etc.

I am assuming you are asking this question with regards to having a baby. If this is the case then there are several things that can be done to protect both partners and still conceive naturally. For more information please follow this link.

    Hi Baby,

    I really do not know what the symptoms that your husband is having are. If you know he’s been sleeping around and you are worried, you will need to test. Please see question one here:
