Dating someone with hiv
Picture this: You’re on your fourth, maybe fifth, date with someone you think is phenomenal.
Couples also had "to be having sex without condoms at least some of the time."The study concluded that in an estimated 16,400 occasions of sex in gay men, not a single HIV transmission was reported.
After a bunch of statistical calculations about odds and things I don’t really understand, it was established the maximum likely chance of transmission from someone on fully suppressive HIV therapy was 2.5 percent for receptive anal sex.
It was also noted the actual figure could be closer to zero. I realized my apprehension didn’t stem from his HIV status; it stemmed from the way HIV was —and still is — misrepresented.
How high are my chances of contracting it if we are careful?
Dear Reader, There is no way for a sexually active person to be 100 percent certain that s/he is protected from HIV infection or any other sexually transmitted infection (STI).
