Can I pass on HIV if I have been on treatment for 5 months?

Recently I had unprotected sex and I’m HIV positive. I’m durably undetectable and I’m scared that it may have passed on. I been on Biktarvy for 5 months. What’s the odds of passing it on when you just got undetectable?
Hi, how are you doing?
There is no risk of transmission. As you are durably undetectable and on treatment there is no risk of transmission.
This is called U=U. It means that when someone is on treatment with a viral load below 200/undetectable, there is no risk of transmission via sex.
