Apologies for the late reply- scheduling problem on our side
there are 2 people involved in this - so wee need to look at both of you to find an answer
YOU:some people have a high resistance to HIV ( ie. high natural immunity) and can tollerate more exposure to the virus before infection occurs. So for some it takes many exposures and for others a few. You may be one of those
YOUR PARTNER: the partner is is only able to infect you through the transmission of virus - the more virus there is to transmit, the higher the possibility of passing it on. Your partner is on ARV'S and therefore has a low a viral load in the vaginal secretions - there might not be enough virus to pass on.
NB The risk still exists as you well know
Universal treatment has been advocated as a prevention technique on a global basis
dont worry about the snotty replies received - most people die of ignorance!
