HIV can be transmitted through sex without a condom or other barrier method. The chance of transmission is higher during anal sex without a condom or other barrier method, compared with vaginal sex without a condom or other barrier method. This is because the skin around the anus is thinner than the skin around the vagina, so small tears are more likely to occur during anal sex. Someone without HIV is more likely to contract the virus during anal sex if they are the “receptive” partner (that is, the partner whose anus is being penetrated by the penis). Condoms and other barrier methods provide protection against HIV, as well as other sexually transmitted infections. The chance of transmission is high during anal sex without a condom or other barrier method. The chance of transmission is low during oral sex or activities that don’t involve contact with bodily fluids.The chance of HIV transmission increases with the number of sexual partners that a person has.Those who have sex with multiple partners or partners of unknown HIV status should get tested more frequently, every 3 to 6 months. People who test positive for HIV should follow their doctor’s recommended treatment plan. Taking antiretroviral medication will lower the risk of complications and help prevent transmission. It also helps to ask your sexual partners about their testing history and If you don’t have HIV, ask your doctor whether you should take PrEP to lower your chance of contracting the virus. If you have sex without a condom or other barrier method with someone who has HIV or someone who might have HIV, ask your doctor about PEP. You must take PEP within 72 hours of a possible exposure and continue taking it for 28 days. People who have HIV should encourage their partners to speak with their doctor about PrEP and PEP. New HIV infections occur each year, with a large number affecting men. Reduce your chances of contracting or transmitting the virus by using a condom or other barrier method during sex. Get regularly tested for HIV, and talk with sexual partners about their HIV status. Antiretroviral medications are available to treat HIV. They help prevent transmission and lower the risk of complications from HIV. Medications are also available to reduce the chances that someone without HIV will contract the virus after exposure.Some men don’t seek out testing or treatment due to homophobic stigma or fear of discrimination. I had seen many gay or bisexual men who didn’t go to test as they feel fear and think about negative impacts if somone finds out what he is doing or what’s rests results come out. After all, it’s same old Indian society, that love to laugh on pain of others. I had suffered in past but yeah one can learn how to deal with it. In future, if you plan up to have a sex date, make sure you keep these pijnts in mind and enjoy life at its best.
