Dating hiv people positive
The sooner you start meds and take them diligently (meaning every day), the sooner you will become undetectable.People with an undetectable viral load — I’ll explain what that means in the next question — are unable to transmit the virus.Let me say that again: Undetectable HIV-positive people pose no risk of transmitting HIV to their partners — regardless of condom use.You can stay undetectable as long as you keep taking your daily medication. No, there is no cure for HIV, at least not right now. As long as they are aware of your HIV status and unafraid of it, you can date anyone you want to date — assuming they want to date you, too.That said, some people, both HIV positive and HIV negative, choose to serosort. If your doctor diagnosed you with AIDS, you may have seen some changes in your body already. If HIV is left untreated, in time it will progress to AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.Thankfully, we have medications that reduce the level of HIV in your blood to the point that you can live an extremely healthy life (undetectability).If you’re on medication and taking it diligently, you will never have AIDS.
A sexually responsible, socially cognizant adult should do that self-education on their own time, particularly if they are part of a community that is at high-risk for HIV (men who have sex with men, particularly men of color, and transgender women).How do I tell people I want to have sex with that I am HIV positive?The standard practice in the United States is to get HIV positive people on medication as soon as possible.Life isn’t always easy, but I can say confidently that HIV has not stopped me from meeting and dating and fucking sexy people.I use it as a litmus test to weed out unwanted partners: If you’re not cool with my status, you don’t get the rest of me.
