HIV used to really scary not so long ago. But these days with the development of medical technology, HIV is not only preventable but also really manageable. Considering where we are present, we should focus on prevention, even though the cure is not too far away.
- Firstly we suggest that you stick to few sexual partners. The more sexual partners you have, the more prone to STDs and HIVs you will be. If you are into one night stands and you have no idea about the person’s medical history or history of STDs, you can be in a spot of bother sooner rather than later. So in terms of having sex, we suggest that you know exactly what you are getting into or what is getting into you. Knowing your partner’s sexual and medical history is a must for those who are concerned with preventing HIV from manifesting in their body.
- The second easy way to prevent HIV from entering your body is to indulge in safe sex. And when we say safe, we mean both in terms of using protection and staying away from anal sex. As pleasurable as it can be, anal sex is one of the major reasons for HIV/AIDS. And when you do indulge in vaginal sex, make sure to use a condom. It is one thing to turn around and say that you don’t feel wholesome while using a condom, but it is a huge deal to turn around and realise that your small moment of pleasure has resulted in a life-long battle against HIV.
- Drugs are a big no no because they can be deadly and fatal for a number of reasons. It is also very likely that you overdose on drugs, due to your lack of knowledge of how your body functions in the presence of drugs in the system. But if you still want to indulge in the high those drugs give you, then we suggest that you utilise the use of sterile injection equipment. A lot of people in the early 2000s had fallen prey to HIV because of the use of infected needles. So as soon as you use the injection for whatever purpose, we suggest that you carefully dispose of the needles away in a medical waste bag. We condone the use of drugs, but we understand that not everyone is going to adhere to the rules
