Possibility Of HIV Transmission?
Good afternoon, what happens if a husband and wife are HIV positive still ml without a condom? I’ve read on the internet. HIV + husband and wife who ml routinely without a condom do not feel any negative effects as long as they take ARV regularly and do not mutually change partners and ml is done when the viral load is undetectable. Is it really like that?
HIV transmission itself can indeed be through several ways, such as sexual intercourse, through sharing needles, through contaminated blood products, or from mothers to children during pregnancy, childbirth or while breastfeeding.
If a husband and wife are both HIV sufferers, if they want to have sex without a condom, it can still be a decision that needs to be discussed because it is not impossible that reinfection or infection with the HIV virus can occur with other strains that have the possibility of being resistant to ARV drugs, but this still requires research. and further study. In addition, the use of condoms can also prevent other infections such as sexually transmitted infections or hepatitis.
A husband and wife who have taken ARV regularly and the viral load has reached undetectable levels can reduce the possibility of transmitting the virus which is also possible if they will have offspring in order to reduce the possibility of transmitting the virus. Consult a hiv consultant doctor if you want to get pregnant or have a baby so that later efforts will be made so that as much as possible the child can be born without being infected with HIV.
