Hello Farel, thanks for your question
HIV is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a virus that is transmitted through blood and certain body fluids. Here are some transmission routes:
unprotected sexual intercourse with a person with no known sexual history, either orally (mouth), vaginal, or anal (rectally) using a syringe, alternately making tattoos or piercing with a needle whose sterility level cannot be ascertained due to contaminated blood or blood products HIV positive mother is HIV positive to her baby, either during pregnancy, childbirth, or during breastfeeding. Thus, everyone who has had sexual intercourse without a condom and has had multiple partners has the potential to contract this virus. The first step that can be done is to confirm the status of HIV infection through blood tests. This examination is carried out serially / continuously, especially if the results are negative. Here are the recommendations:
after 1 month of risky treatment - this is because antibodies in reaction to the virus begin to form after 1 month, the sensitivity level of this test is around 95% so there are still 5% of people who should be infected but are still undetectable after 3 months of risky action - antibodies continue formed up to 3 months. the sensitivity level is 99.7%, that is, there are 0.3% of people who should be infected but are still not detected. Thus, based on the information you have presented above, it is likely that you are currently not infected with HIV. However, it is advisable to keep avoiding the above risky behaviors in order to avoid HIV infection.
Hope this information is useful
