Hi Trimax,

Activities that are at risk of causing transmission of the HIV virus are such as unprotected sex with HIV positive patients, sharing needles, injection drug users, transmission from mother to baby during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding or through contaminated blood products, for example during transfusion. .

To ensure infection or not after carrying out risky activities, VCT or HIV counseling and testing can be carried out as early as 3 weeks after carrying out risky actions or can be carried out 3 months afterward. If the result is negative and the repetition remains negative, it can be said that there is no infection. If in doubt, it can be repeated for the next 3 months.

In addition, of course, the most important thing is not to re-do activities that can increase the risk of transmission. Avoid having free sex or having multiple sexual partners, using condoms during sexual intercourse, avoiding sharing needles, and doing more positive activities to avoid the possibility of transmitting either HIV or other sexually transmitted infections.

May be useful,
