Dating someone who is hiv Lesdian sex
Dear Alice, I recently began dating a guy who is HIV positive.
I know how it is transmitted and the risks involved, but I was wondering if there are any statistics out about being infected in my similar situation.
Therefore, taking an HIV test is not a way to find out if your partner is infected.
Ask your partner if he or she has been tested for HIV and about his or her risk behaviors, both now and in the past.
As for his bratty friends and snob of a mother, you’ll just have to roll the dice.
But a man who is up front with his status should put you at ease. Be wary—he may just be the guy who convinces himself he is negative just because he doesn’t know whether he is positive.
Truth is, if he has had even one sexual encounter since his last test, he is a question mark.
It’s not the bet I thought I was making, but life is far from over.
Now I approach every pair of pretty eyes with my truth, because the gamble of transmitting this stigma is far worse than any pill the doctor may prescribe.
In fact, the positive man must protect himself even more, to safeguard his health from pesky ancillary viruses.
