Sex with other HIV-positive people
Many people with HIV have unprotected sex with their HIV-positive partners. Positive reasons for this include intimacy and pleasure.However, If you are HIV-positive and having sex with another person who is also HIV-positive, there are some important considerations that many HIV doctors and HIV prevention workers believe you should be aware of so you can make an informed decision about sex.
These issues include:
There is a risk of pregnancy as a consequence of unprotected vaginal sex between men and women. There is a risk of transmission to the baby, when an HIV positive man has unprotected sex with an HIV negative woman who is pregnant or breast-feeding. However, with the right treatment and care, it's possible for an HIV-positive woman to have an HIV-negative baby.
Unprotected sex puts you at risk of other sexually transmitted infections. This applies to both men and women.
MEET FOR PEP TREATMENT
PEP is the abbreviation for Post-exposure prophylaxis. It is the course of HIV medication that is prescribed to the person infected with this deadly virus. The medications are given soon after the person gets the infection. PEP medicines prevent the virus from damaging the immune system.
The treatment must be started within 72 hours of exposure to HIV infection. If given late, the medicines do not provide desired effects.HAVE AQUESTION ? HAVE AQUESTION ?
