Undetectable = Untransmittable
If your partner is HIV positive, and you are HIV negative, the best way to prevent them from passing HIV to you through sex is for them to take HIV medication (also called antiretroviral therapy or ART). If all the following conditions are met, there is no chance of passing on HIV through sex:
- Your HIV positive partner takes their HIV medication every day
- They have been taking HIV medication for at least 6 months and have an undetectable viral load.
- They continue to take their HIV medications without missing doses
