Hi pozman, welcome to the forums.

My partner and I are also both poz, both on meds etc, and no, we do not use condoms. There's no need.

The only time there would be a need is if either of you are having sex outside your relationship where there's a possibility of bringing an STI into the picture.

Condoms are a girl's best friend

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

  I could twist this into a great fantasy for you two to work out if you like.

Welcome to the forums.  You've had your question answered adequately so I just wanted to welcome you.

Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.

No need for condoms regarding HIV, but make sure things are clear with her regarding other STIs.

Also, it's probably too obvious to even mention it, but just in case, in your situation, there's also the scenario of a pregnancy. We don't know the details of your relationship (other birth control practices, age, desire of having kids, etc.) but that's one thing to think about hehe ;)
