How to live with an infected or sick person

Infection can only occur if one of the people involved is infected with HIV. Some people think that certain behaviors (such as anal sex) can cause AIDS even if HIV is not present. This is not true.

It is not enough to come into contact with infected fluid to become infected. Healthy, unbroken skin does not allow HIV to enter the body: it is an excellent barrier to HIV. HIV can only enter through an open cut or wound, or by coming into contact with the mucous membranes of the anus or rectum, genitals, vagina, mouth and eyes.

Other fluids do not contain enough HIV to infect another person. This is regardless of how they enter the bloodstream. There have been no documented cases of HIV transmission from these fluids. See below for more information.

The mucous membranes of the anus and vagina of the receptive (passive) partner are an efficient route into the bloodstream. HIV can also enter through the tiny lesions that occur during sexual intercourse (which are usually not noticeable).

How is HIV passed from one person to another? Most people who get HIV get it through anal or vaginal sex, or by sharing needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment (e.g., cookers). But there are powerful tools that can help prevent HIV transmission. Can I get HIV through anal intercourse?

You are at high risk of getting HIV if you share needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment (e.g., warmers) with someone who has HIV. Never share needles or other equipment for injecting drugs, hormones, steroids, or silicone.

Contagion+hiv+single contact

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system. The immune system is weakened, making it difficult for the body to fight infections and some cancers.

Without treatment, an HIV infection can lead to a severely weakened immune system and eventually progress to AIDS. The diseases that can occur with AIDS are called “AIDS-defining illnesses”.

HIV destroys CD4 cells (also called “T-cells”). These cells are part of the immune system. They fight germs that enter the body and help prevent some types of cancers.

Health care professionals may prescribe a combination of several different types of drugs for their HIV-infected or AIDS patients. These patients must take exactly what they have been prescribed in order for the medication to work properly. These medications:

If the CD4 cell count in an HIV-positive person were to drop very low, doctors would prescribe daily antibiotics. This is to prevent pneumocystic pneumonia, which occurs in people with very weakened immune systems.

Hiv is transmitted by saliva

All sexually active people who do not protect themselves by using condoms are at risk of transmitting an STD, especially those who have multiple sexual partners. A single sexual contact with someone who is infected is enough to become infected.

If you are sexually active, there is only one method that will help protect you from STDs during sex: using a condom during every sexual encounter. Using a condom is simple and quick and allows you to enjoy a much safer sexuality. If you don’t know where to start, then we invite you to consult our article on How to put on a condom step by step.

Yes, whenever you have unprotected sex you are exposed to getting infected with an STD, regardless of whether it is your first time or not. It may be your first sexual partner for you, but maybe the other person has already had previous experiences and has not used a condom, so you could have an STD without either of you knowing it. Don’t forget how STDs are transmitted: one unprotected time is enough to infect you.
