Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.

Well, one of the highest risks is with anal sex, so if one partner is HIV positive and you continue to have anal sex the chances of getting HIV is pretty high.

If you only have vaginal sex then the chances are very low.

So I would say the chances are not 0% like you mention.

Have you been both tested?

Why do you think you have HIV?

Please let me know.

She had been tested 2 times in the last 6 years, las time 5 month ago. I was tested some time the I was like 19.- Now I am 37. I have been out of risk for the last 15 years at less, but it just came to my mind. There is no anal sex in the game. Both are perfectly ok in terms of health, we do not have any kind of opportunistic diseases or stuff like that. I think that after more than 10 years something should be wrong with me.

NO risk of HIV.

I would not worry whatsoever.

I will rate your answer, but could you explain better why?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

Because you were tested negative and she was tested negative and both of you have been honest with each other.

If you too do not have HIV then there is absolutely no risk whatsoever.

but I was tested when I was 19, then I had some couples until I got 22. I never got tested between 19 to 22 years old (I am 37 now). Thats why I am asking if after 15 years that could be posible when having marriage for 6 years, and she got tested 5 month ago. Do that makes my question more clear? I think is 0% but I really do not know.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

It is not possible because if you had HIV, in 15 years without treatment you would have been in the heavens.

So I would not worry at all.
