By practicing sex with condoms, its possible to have a healthy and complete romantic relationship with someone living with HIV. Taking a preventive medication such as PrEP or PEP can reduce the chances of exposure to HIV. If someone with HIV has an undetectable viral load, they cant transmit HIV to others.
Can a HIV-positive person date a HIV negative person?
A seroconcordant relationship is where both people in the relationship are HIV-positive. A serodiscordant relationship, where one partner is positive and the other is negative, can be just as successful, as with two HIV-negative people.
Do I have to tell someone IM undetectable?
Having an undetectable viral load and continuing to stay on medication means you are not putting your partner(s) at risk. There is no moral imperative to disclose when you are not putting your partner at risk.
How do you know if youre undetectable?
The only way to know if your viral load is undetectable is through an HIV viral load or HIV RNA test that your doctor or health care provider can do. You will need to have your blood drawn for this test, and the test will determine the level of virus in your blood that day.
