As HIV becomes a growing threat around the world, people want access to information that can help them to avoid this potentially deadly disease.
Medical experts have indicated that condoms can be a good way to prevent an HIV infection, but there are other steps you can take to reduce your chances of contracting HIV.
The most effective way to not contract HIV is to not have s.ex with anyone until you are prepared to get married. When the time comes, you and your significant partner can get the tests done to determine your HIV status, and then make the informed decision that will affect the rest of your lives.
2. Be selective on your s.exual partners
When you find someone who you have strong feelings for, it is important to have an open discussion about HIV prior to having s*x. If you are extremely selective about the partners you choose, then you can significantly reduce your chances of contracting HIV.
3. Consider monogamy
One of the surest ways to prevent HIV if you want to remain s*xually active is to be monogamous with someone who is not HIV positive.
4. Use only sterile medical equipment
Whether you are giving yourself a shot of medication at home or getting an injection from a medical facility, always insist on making sure that the needle is sterile. Avoid previously used needles when you are injecting medication, or when you are getting medical treatment.
