Hi,
Thanks for the query. Yours is a hypothetical question.
There is no pharmacokinetic interaction between Anticancer drugs and anti HIV medicines. Minute amount of anticancer drugs can appear in the semen. But this will not come in the way of HIV or its window period.
Better way is to practice safe sex. Prevention is THE answer.
Thanks
