My cheating wife is living with HIV and has kept it a secret – am I at risk?

DEAR DEIDRE: A DEVASTATING letter I discovered from my wife’s doctor made it clear she is living with HIV.

But she had kept this a secret from me. We have been married for five years and have a three-year-old son.

She was taking medication and I didn’t know what it was for.

But then I found her doctor’s letter when I was looking through old paperwork.

I’m pretty sure she has always cheated on me with different men.

But she has never admitted being unfaithful until I found this letter.

She has finally conceded she had a one-night stand.

I feel so low. Does this mean I could have HIV? What about our son?

Some friends have even told me my son may not be mine. We are both 37.

DEIDRE SAYS: Get urgent help to see if you or your son are carrying HIV.

It is treatable and The Terrence Higgins Trust (tht.org.uk, 0808 802 1221) can tell you more about this virus.

Try to focus on sorting out your marriage.

You need to talk to your wife to start working out if there is a future for you.

She will have destroyed your trust on so many levels.

My support pack on cheating shows where you can find a good couples’ counsellor.

Keep in mind that a father is someone who loves and cares for a child.

Whether your son is biologically yours or not, he will still need you.
