Dating someone who is hiv positive
Let’s say you know that the other person in question has HIV in their system.
Just because they have it doesn’t mean you will get it.
Knowing how this virus is transmitted is what you need to protect yourself against it (if you’re HIV negative) or protect others from becoming infected (if you’re HIV positive).
You can’t tell if someone has HIV just by looking at them.
What this really means is that in order for you to be exposed to HIV, the other person who could be exposing you to it needs to have it.I love him so much, I don’t even care right now that he cheated on me and got this lifelong disease. A: First of all, I want to recognize that that’s an intense situation to be confronted with.I don’t want to leave him, but I don’t know how to help him or protect myself. We all should go in for regular sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, and it can be nerve-wracking for many of us, but most people going in for a routine test don’t think they’re going to come away with a positive test result.It’s also important to take into account the amount of virus in the other person’s blood.When someone first gets infected, the virus goes all spring break on your body while your immune system scrambles to retaliate.
The fluids through which HIV can be transmitted are blood, semen, precum (also called pre-seminal fluid), vaginal fluid, breast milk (only for mother-to-child transmission), and rectal fluids, also called anal mucous.
