Question: How can a positive partner stay HIV negative?

Is it possible to be HIV negative when your partner is positive?

A: It is quite common for one partner to test positive and the other negative, even if they have been having sex without condoms. Mostly this is explained by luck and the role of other risk factors. Over time, most people will catch HIV if they continue to be at risk.

How do you not pass HIV to your partner?

Preventing Getting HIVChoose less risky sexual behaviors. Use condoms. Talk to your doctor about PrEP. Take PEP within 72 hours after a possible HIV exposure. Encourage your HIV-positive partner to get and stay on HIV treatment. Get tested and treated for other STDs and encourage your partners to do the same.More items •9 Apr 2021
