My boyfriend has hiv Does that make me a carrier

Patient: My boyfriend has hiv. Does that make me a carrier and what are my chances of getting it

 

 

Doctor: Thanks for your question.There is nothing like a ‘carrier’ state in HIV. Either you are positive or negative. If you don’t engage in unprotected sex, don’t share needles, then there is no worry about getting HIV from your partner. Though I would recommend avoiding intercourse all together as a condom tear can lead to problems.Hope this helps.
