How likely am I to infect someone if I am an elite controller?

So, what are my chances of infecting someone?

Jam, the short answer to your question is, "We don't know," and the longer answer is hopefully, "We don't know...yet."

If you are indeed a LTNP (an elite controller or viremic controller) your participation in clinical trials, as others have said, is of immense value. Please consider this avenue.

Personally, I have never infected anyone, to my knowledge, including my HIV-negative partner. This is a perfect opportunity for me to spread the message of safer sex and responsibility, but it's a personal choice. I've chosen and continue to choose not to expose my partner to the risks that can result in an infection. And in the heat of the moment, it's a continual challenge. I know what feels best but I settle for what feels good. No way I would want my partner to get this. He doesn't have the good fortune fo the genes I have. And the risk is too great, however minimal.

I thought the jam quoted that "I've been positive for a year now...."

Is he positive or not?

I wasn't talking to Jam, I was talking to "11 letters". That's why I quoted him. Please look at my post more carefully if you're still unsure. Thanks.
