Unprotected vaginal sex with hiv positive woman

Is it possible for man to not get infected after having unprotected vaginal sex with an hiv positive woman, 3 times? She says the Dr said her viral load is undetectable after her positive results, could she have known all known about hiv status and been taking treatment?

In your previous thread, everyone already advised you that obviously this is a risk and obviously you need to test.  BUT, also from your other thread:  "Having said that, vaginal sex is pretty low risk, but not zero risk.  If she had an undetectable viral load, you would really have been at no risk. "  This means that it is unlikely that you've gotten HIV from your episodes. At that time, it was only 2 times of unprotected vaginal sex.  I would just say that if you are continuing to have intercourse with this person, you should use a condom.  If it is going to be a long term relationship, you can take Prep  

Remember, you can take a 4th generation DUO test at 4 weeks post last exposure or a RNA test.  That gives results sooner than 90 days.  

And as to your question, YES.  Someone can have sex with an HIV positive person and not get HIV.  In fact, that is MOST often the case.  

Take your test, get your answer.  
Thank you for your response, by the way in my previous thread, I was talking about all three occasions of the exposure which in 2 separate days.
Not sure what this last post is about, but as GR said, "Take your test, get your answer."
