Question

Can I have a relationship with a negative partner?

Can a HIV positive person marry an HIV negative person and live together without their partner getting infected ?I’m on medication.

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

The simple answer is YES. A positive personsĀ  status shouldn’t be a barrier to them having a relationship with someone who is negative. And if this means kids and marriage, then that’s great.

As long as the positive partner is on medication and their viral load is undetectable, there’s no risk of transmission. Please see here: https://i-base.info/u-equals-u/

    Hi T Boss,

    If you’re on medication and your viral load is undetectable, there’s no risk to your wife. Please see here: http://i-base.info/u-equals-u/ And yes U=U is reliable.
    With regards to where you access PrEP in Nigeria, you’ll need to ask your doctor about this as i-base are UK based.
