    RE: Get The Facts on HIV Transmission

    My partner and I are not using protection and we are both positive - my cd4 is below 40ml copies and has been undetectable for the past 3 years - his, is going up and down but it seems we are ignoring that fact, what can happen to us please educate me, can my cd4 suddenly change from being undetectable? can he contract a more serious disease if we keep on not using protection, sometimes as people we tend to ignore serious warnings around us, please I need serious intervention so that I can be educated and also educate my partner. Recently ive seen in certain blogs of positive partners also not using protection but only sometimes, why do we do that? why do people ignore things like this, is it being ignorance or being in denial?

        First question....do you mean your viral load is undetectable versus your cd4 level?
