The Possibility Of Getting HIV If You Change Partners?
Good morning, how is HIV transmitted to a man who has two or more wives? Every time they have sex, they don’t use condoms. Thank you HealthReplies.com
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The HIV virus (human immunodeficiency virus) can be transmitted through the transmission of body fluids to other people. This is possible for example through the following activities:
Having sex, whether vaginal, anal, or oral with an unknown person with no known sexual history. high risk of needle sticks from HIV sufferers. However, it should be emphasized here, that transmission is ONLY possible if you have sex with someone with HIV. So, answering your question, are men who have more than 1 wife more at risk of contracting HIV? The answer is, yes, maybe no. If his wives have been tested for HIV and tested negative for HIV, then of course there will be no transmission. Because, the HIV virus will not appear by itself without anyone transmitting it. However, if the man's wives are not aware of their HIV status and have never been tested for HIV, then transmission may occur.
Therefore, the key to knowing whether HIV transmission is possible or not is to check the health status of each, both husband and wife. Examination to detect the presence of the HIV virus can be done through a blood test. Doctors usually recommend that you take VCT (voluntary counseling and testing), which is a series of procedures starting from interviews, education, and also blood tests to detect the possibility that someone has HIV.
Hope this helps ..
