Growing evidence suggests that as HIV medicines become more efficacious, HIV-positive individuals taking antiretroviral medications are significantly less likely to transmit the virus to a sexual partner than someone not taking medication.
In fact, in a study of almost 3,000 monogamous serodiscordant couples, it was found that with the use of antiretroviral therapy, only 3.4 percent of sexually active couples would transmit HIV from the infected to uninfected partner over a period of 100 years.
You don't have to start the first talk, no awkward moment when you dating someone with the same virus.
One area where the experts say there needs to be more awareness is among heterosexual women age 50 and older.
However, there are many ways to reduce risk of transmission, even for an uninfected person in a sexually active relationship with someone who is HIV-positive.
Many studies have been conducted on serodiscordant couples, meaning that one partner is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative.
