1) Unsafe sex does not mean that the virus is transmitted in every act.  Unsafe sex lets transmission be possible.  There are many many couples who have experienced the same thing as your couple.

2)  Maybe your partner has a very low viral load. 

3)  Lucky you!

Hi Waca, welcome to the forums.

I've moved your post from the I Just Tested Poz forum to the Someone I Care About Has hiv forum as this forum is the more appropriate place for you to post.

As Mecch mentioned, just because transmission is possible doesn't mean it's necessarily going to happen. In addition to the possibility that your partner has a low viral load, it is also possible that you are one of the rare people who has a gene that protects you against hiv infection.

HOWEVER - don't chance it. You two need to start using condoms. You've been lucky so far, but that doesn't mean your luck will hold out.

You also need to test at three months past the last incident of unprotected intercourse in order to confirm your negative results.

I hope your partner is seeing an hiv specialist - he will need regular monitoring.

Make sure you visit the Lessons section of this website so you both can learn more about living with hiv.

And please, invite him to also join here. He will need his own account if he wishes to post.

Good luck, and hang in there.

Ann

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
