Yes but not for very long! it all depends on how much virus you are producing and passing on to your partner - the more you make the faster will be the infection rate. remember also that it takes on ave 6 weeks or so for the normal HIV test to show positive - and can be as long as 6 months (that's LAB test - the finger prick tests are grossly inaccurate)
