Can a compliant prep user pass on HIV while remaining HIV neg?
« on: September 09, 2019, 08:46:13 am »
I take prep every day, am hiv neg, and get tested every 3 months. If I have unprotected sex with a handful of regular partners, some of whom are not on prep, can I realistically pass on hiv to one of them that is not on prep while I remain hiv neg?

Hiya,

Okay so PrEP everyday and presumed negative HIV status based on last test results.

Why the question? Is this just interest of has something happened?

Anyhow you can't pass on something you don't have. As for your HIV status PrEP is not a guarantee although if you are correctly adherent the risk of acquiring HIV is extremely minute. 

Now if one of your partners was posting as a "Am I infected" section for a risk assessment I would be telling them to test ... in action I would be telling them to seriously consider condoms & PrEP for the future to reduce their own risks.
