Its safe for you and your wife to have unprotected sex as long as you are std free for all other stds other than HIV and in an exclusively monogamous relationship . Some stds can be a bugger to get rid of when you are HIV positive and they tax your immune system and are to be avoided ... as if I have to tell you that LOL . 

If your wife was the one that exposed you to HIV you both share the same virus and you do not need to worry over it now . 

I moved your thread into just the I tested poz forum , the AM I Infected forum is for risk assessments only for new exposures and not for us already living with HIV .

Welcome to the forum , glad you found us .
