MY VIRAL LOAD HAS BEEN UNDETECTABLE FOR 6 MONTHS

Should my sexual partner and I still use condoms?

There is zero risk of HIV transmission when the viral load is undetectable. ARV treatment will only treat HIV and does not provide protection against STI’s. If you are worried about STI’s or pregnancy, you should still use condoms.

Should my HIV-negative partner still use PrEP?

It is up to you and your partner to decide how to have a safe sex life. HIV-negative partners might still take PrEP if they have more than one sexual partner, or if they are unsure of a partner’s HIV status.
