How Is The Transmission Of HIV Disease?
I want to ask, actually HIV is contagious only if we have sexual relations with HIV sufferers?
hello .. thanks for the question ..
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a type of virus that attacks the immune system causing several symptoms such as fever, skin rashes, joint and muscle pain, easy head and stomach pain, frequent thrush, and weakness. HIV can be contagious and can be fatal if not treated properly and routinely. ways of transmission of this virus infection must have originated or sourced from someone who has been infected with HIV before, several risk factors and ways of transmission, namely:
sexual intercourse. using syringes used / shared with others. blood transfusion and organ or tissue transplantation. during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. through these factors / modes of transmission are very likely to cause a person infected with HIV. the most common is during sexual intercourse, a person will be infected with HIV if having sex with someone who has been infected with HIV before. if the partner has been examined and proven to not have or is infected with HIV it will certainly be safe, but it should be loyal to one partner or not changing partners because it does not guarantee other sexual partners are not infected with the virus which can be a source or cause transmission of HIV infection to you and other sexual partners. things that can be done to minimize the likelihood or prevent the spread of the infection are to use a safety / condom during sexual intercourse, healthy sexual intercourse (anal sex has a higher risk), avoid the use of needles with others, be loyal and open / honest with each other couples, and maintain the cleanliness of sex organs / genitals. if you have a risky lifestyle and experience symptoms or complaints that lead to HIV, consult a doctor immediately. the doctor will carry out further tests and provide the necessary treatment such as preventive medicine (PEP / post exposure prophylaxis) for those who have high risk.
that's all and please also read the HIV / AIDS article
hopefully can help..
