Looking for Discordant Hetero Couples for Questions

Hi All,

I'm a straight male in a new relationship with my galpal. We are sexual and have, after consulting with my doctor, and her doing research (she's a nurse), that we will opt for unprotected sex. I've been undetectable for years, CD4 count of 550 and 42%.

She/we would like to hear how other discordant couples are doing, any challenges, are you using protection, those sorts of things.

Would be grateful for your thoughts.

Hello Lovems,

Congratulations on starting a new r/ship, with some one who sounds committed and r/sponsible, yay, there's hope for me yet.

That's all I can add to this conversation as I'm yet to date with my status,

The recent research is saying it is safe and I would rely on what my consultant says and yours has said go ahead it is safe?

I can understand your caution, (?) the responsibility we carry is enormous and it would be scary just in case etc but i would feel reassured by my consultant and I trust mine implicitly and the research seems to be pretty solid.

The very best wishes to you both x


I'm in a serodiscordant relationship and also have ditched condoms, with the doctors blessings. Makes a massive difference to our love life but really does need both partners to agree and accept the (minuscule theoretical) risks that come with it.
