I had unprotected sex with a partner who later found out he was positive, and called to inform me. I was the top, he stated his viral load was undetectable but he was positive. How much is the risk different because I was the top? What does it mean that his viral load is undetectable?
Undetectable viral load in serum is not the same as undetectable semen viral load. You were at risk of contracting HIV. If you were exposed less than 72 hours ago you can go get nPEP you should discussed it with your doctor or infectious disease doctor as early as possible. .
