Hiv and dating and not
As a result, the following statement was produced: «A HIV person with no other STD and following a successful retroviral treatment with undetectable viral load does not transmit the virus via sexual contact».(translated from the French)Being undetectable is less risky than having a high viral load, by definition.I’m currently dating this woman who has HIV and hepatitis B. This is a very safe way to protect you from catching HIV. There are a number of options available to couples like you.I know how it is transmitted and the risks involved, but I was wondering if there are any statistics out about being infected in my similar situation.How high are my chances of contracting it if we are careful?
Growing evidence suggests that as HIV medicines become more efficacious, HIV-positive individuals taking antiretroviral medications are significantly less likely to transmit the virus to a sexual partner than someone not taking medication.
But it’s not the holy grail that all are in a position to attain. Provided you don’t re-enact Twilight or Saw, you’re most likely than not to be fine.
If the links above don’t convince you, I’ll just throw in my own story.
” Back in the days, when the first cases of HIV and AIDS occurred, not all transmission factors were known. Health officials were shouting and screaming for people to change their ways. And if you had HIV, you were bound to have AIDS, right? If Bella had been HIV , Edward may not be so happy these days (mind, what does he care, he’s dead anyway. I didn’t watch past the first one.)If I were to pour my blood into your veins, yeah you should be scared.
But, practically speaking, even though it sounds like a hell of an evening, when do relationships/sex EVER involve smearing blood?
