Many people with HIV can expect to have a near-normal lifespan. It may be reassuring to know that you can have a long-term relationship and a fulfilling sex life with your partner, and stay HIV negative. Its completely safe to kiss and hug your partner.
Can you be HIV-positive and your partner is negative?
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.
Can I date someone who is HIV-positive?
HIV passes from one person to another during sex through body fluids like semen, vaginal fluid, and anal mucus. But with the right precautions, you can have sex with almost no risk of passing the virus to your partner. One way to be safe is to take antiretroviral treatment (ART).
