A serodiscordant relationship is a type of intimate relationship and partnership in which one person in the relationship is HIV positive while the other partner is HIV negative.

So for example if you as the boyfriend is HIV positive and your girlfriend is HIV negative then that would mean you're in a serodiscordant relationship.

A serodiscordant relationship, also known as mixed-status, is one where one partner is infected by HIV and the other is not.

This contrasts with seroconcordant relationships, in which both partners are of the same HIV status.

A serodiscordant couple is a couple who have different blood markers or blood test results for a particular disease.

Uninfected partners of people who have sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), especially those that aren't curable, are at high risk of becoming infected.

It is quite common for one partner to test positive and the other negative, even if they have been having sex without condoms.

Mostly this is explained by luck and the role of other risk factors.

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the body's immune system.

If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).

There is currently no effective cure.

Once people get HIV, they have it for life.

Without treatment, the immune system will become severely damaged, and life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and severe infections can occur.

If you're planning on getting pregnant, it's important to talk to a GP.

Although rare, it's possible to transmit HIV to your baby.

The symptoms of HIV are.

    Night sweats.
    Muscle aches.
    Sore throat.
    Swollen lymph nodes.

The only way you can know for sure if you have HIV is to get tested.

Although the virus can cause symptoms, they're not a reliable way to tell if you're infected.

In fact, some people won't have any symptoms at all.
