Evarish’s (22) question: I have a question regarding the transmission of HIV, doctor. Me and my partner are negative regarding HIV. So my question is would there be a chance to become HIV positive?

Dr Dick’s response: I assume that you mean both you and your partner are HIV negative. As long as both of you remain HIV negative, and you both remain monogamous (neither one of you cheats and has sex with anyone else, except with each other), you cannot become HIV positive. However, the safest option will be for both of you to get tested every three to six months, as we do not have any guarantees that our partners will always be faithful.
