Safe Sex When You’re HIV-Positive, What To Do If You Have Sex With Someone Who Is Positive? Opinion

You are not restricted from having sexual encounters, even if you have been diagnosed with HIV. You might occasionally engage in unprotected sexual activity without placing your partner or partners in a significant risk of developing HIV, but this does not mean that you should do so. 

There are a few criteria that will determine the strategies that you want to utilize to safeguard both yourself and your companion. Whether or not you are currently being treated for your HIV infection with antiretroviral therapy is one of these factors. It is also important to consider whether either you or your partner have recently engaged in unprotected sexual activity with a person who may be HIV positive. Find a way to have sex that is not only secure but also pleasurable for both of you. That involves looking out for both yourself and the people you're with. 

Antiretroviral therapy, sometimes known as ART, is a kind of medication that prevents HIV from making a person's immune system more susceptible to illness. Taking medications as directed will lower the quantity of HIV that is present in your body. A full year may pass before the antiretroviral therapy (ART) begins to show any positive effects. 

Sometimes antiretroviral therapy (ART) works so successfully that blood tests are unable to identify any trace of HIV in the patient's system. According to the opinions of the specialists, this constitutes an undetectable viral burden. This indicates that HIV cannot be transmitted through sexual contact with another person. It may take antiretroviral therapy (ART) up to a year to reduce your viral load to the point when it is safe to engage in sexual activity without protection. 


If you meet someone who is positive and make love to them, you owe it to both of you to take them to the hospital and have them tested for HIV and AIDS as soon as possible. If you have been told that you do not have HIV, you should ask them to provide you ARV and instruct you to drink it until you are given the news that you do have HIV. In the event that you have been infected, this will ensure that you are able to eradicate the infection before it becomes too powerful for your body to handle. HIV can be cured if treatment begins within the first 72 hours after infection. Therefore, if you find yourself in a situation similar to this one and you do not trust her, you should go ahead and check her out and begin taking pills for a period of 15 days.
