Hi, I'm an infectious diseases Dr and I will try and assist you.

The risk of HIV transmission from an individual with an undetectable viral load is already very low.

Also the incidents you mention can't transmit HIV either.

So you don't have any risk through them.

Please let me know if you have any question on this?

is that mean undetectable cannot transmit ?

Yes it can't.

Here is reference material clearly stating this from the US Govt agency CDC:

https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics/livingwithhiv/protecting-others.html

And it can't be transmitted through intact skin or sharing glasses like you mentioned.

However sharing glasses is not a good idea, as you could potentially pick up other viruses, such as Herpes that way.

Please complete a positive rating for me, otherwise, I don't get paid for my work from the site, thanks.

No, It cannot.

Undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV.

Even if his blood get into my blood steam ?

How can his blood get into your bloodstream?

You also have to remember that if the viral load is undetectable, there is no circulating virus in practical terms.

If his blood got on your finger, it can't go into your blood stream.

What about we drank the same straw

You would not be infected that way.

Please rate my answer. I depend on positive ratings and it is bad for me when clients deny me a good rating.
