Q and A


What are the chances of reinfection when you’re on ART?

Both partners on ART one undetectable however other partner have not reached that stage, can they get re-infected if they are not using condoms?


Thanks for getting in touch.

It’s good that your viral load is undetectable, this means that your HIV is under control. If your partner is on medication, once their viral load is undetectable, this will also be the case.

With regards to reinfection, please see here: https://i-base.info/ttfa/section-2/7-reinfection-with-hiv/ As long as your partner doesn’t have drug resistance then the chances of reinfection are minimal. This is reduced even further if you’ve got the same strain.
