Need information of HIV/Aids
I am gay with my partner, we tested and we only have sex together. The time we tested we thought we had already re-infected ourselves and continued to have unprotected sex, is this okey.

What it help to stop now, 3 years later or what, what are the risks

A belated hi to you Konnie and welcome to the forum.

Your post in confusing, in that you don't state whether you both (or possibly one of you) tested HIV positive. Re-infection only occurs in people who are already HIV positive.

After 3 years of having unprotected sex (only with each other, not with anyone else) I think that whatever infection (or re-infection) could have taken place has already taken place. So - as long as you're only having unprotected sex with each other - you can continue.

If, however, either one of you is HIV negative of if either of you have sex with other people, the story changes completely. Please post again if this doesn't make sense to you.
