Protection from HIV: HIV-1 infection is most efficiently acquired from blood contact from a patient who is not 'virologically controlled'. So I think you need to talk to your partner, seriously, about this: 1) is he HIV positive? 2) if yes, what are his 'numbers'? A physician can help orchestrate this in the office - so hopefully you can make an apt. An ID doc would be best since they know the disease. Be safe!
