Q and A


Missed meds and risk to sexual partner….

I forgot to take my arvs and had sex the following day and i wasn’t aware that he wasn’t using a condom. Is there any risk?


Thanks for getting in touch.

If you’re taking ARVs and your viral load is undetectable, there’s no risk.

Please see here: https://i-base.info/u-equals-u/

If your viral load is not yet undetectable, then yes there’s a risk if you have sex without a condom. But you should also talk to your doctor to see whether you need to use a different treatment.

Missing a day of medication won’t have an impact on your viral load.
