If my partner and I are both HIV positive do I still have to use protection?

Always use protection—if you don’t, you put yourself or your partner at risk for STIs. Also, you and your partner may have different strains of the HIV virus and could re-infect each other with these strains. This is a problem because you or your partner may have a strain that is resistant to certain HIV drugs. So, for example, if your partner passes on a new strain to you, it will impact your treatment options and possibly your health.

Remember: Infection can happen whenever blood, cum or vaginal juices/fluids of an HIV-positive person come into contact with the inside lining of someone's butt hole, vagina, mouth or urethra, or get under someone's skin through a cut or an injection with a needle. You can’t always see cuts.
