Husband And Wife Relationship About AIDS?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) virus can be transmitted from person to person through contact with body fluids, such as blood, anal fluid, vaginal fluids, penile fluids, and breast milk. This mode of transmission can occur, for example, if you have sexual relations with people with no clear sexual history, use syringes alternately, tattoo your body with non-sterile equipment, and so on.
As long as sexual intercourse is carried out safely and responsibly, frequent sexual intercourse does not necessarily increase the risk of HIV occurrence. Because, the HIV virus can only be transmitted from HIV sufferers. If it can be ascertained that neither the husband nor the wife has HIV, then it is clear that HIV transmission is unlikely.
However, what often becomes a problem is that people with HIV often do not realize that they are infected with HIV. Therefore, early detection steps are very important, especially for people who feel they have engaged in HIV risk behavior (as mentioned above). The steps to detect HIV can be done through the VCT (voluntary counseling and testing) procedure - HIV. In this procedure, the doctor will first conduct an interview regarding a history of HIV risk behavior that may have been done before, then ask your willingness to undergo a blood test. Furthermore, the doctor will explain the results of the blood test while providing counseling on the next steps that need to be taken, including if you need to get ARV (anti-retroviral) therapy if you test positive for HIV.
