HIV Prevention and Testing > How Can I Prevent HIV?



I had protected sex with a guy however there was blood on the condom when we got finished. He asked me a question that i didn’t know the answer too. The question is if your viral load is undetectable could you still transmit the virus from anal bleeding if no protection was used?

Jim Allen:

Welcome to the forum.

As this is a prevention question I've moved this thread to the prevention section. Here some of the more senior forum members answer posts and, you can ask any prevention questions you have within this thread.

So UD for 2 years and you have missed 3 doses, it's not an issue. You are overthinking this and dreaming up non-existent issues, relax.

Best, Jim


Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if comdonless intercourse occurs, use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. to reduce your risks.
