yeah it's fine it's not a disease, you just need to be medicated 24/7 and you're good! Come back to reality please
@Greatcat That is the reality. Just because you aren’t aware of the options today doesn’t mean people out there live pretty normal lives if they are positive. It’s a pill regimen for months to keep it under control and reduce the viral load to zero to prevent passing it on.
yeah it's A FUCKING SHITTY REALITY it's called constant treatment, there is no cure, that is the definition of a terrible thing!!! Diabetes can be held at bay with insulin, doesn't mean it isn't COMPLETELY FUCKED!
Good treatment can bring the viral load to zero and they can have children without HIV., and not pass it on to their partner. PReP is the medication you mention, it can take almost a month to be fully effective and that is another layer that be used if at-risk or for conceiving.
Thanks for the information. I haven't read about it for a long time now, so it's good having someone explaining what I mean
Children can be born with it if the mother had it. I understand you don't want to deal with it, but I feel it's wrong to say all people with HIV made bad choices. Some people are raped and contract it, some people have partners who lie, do you ask every boy for a print out of an STD test?I'm not saying to go out and date people with HIV, just don't demonize them without knowing them.
I'm fully aware some don't have a choice in the matter when it comes to contracting it. I should have added I'd ask how they got it before seeing them in that way.

Problems like drug and alcohol?
@reventon4 financial problems, social issues, mental problems...
Other than the last one, a 35+ big-hearted financially stable man can help you overcome these problems if he truly loves you
@AlexEfron I literally facepalmed too. it's ok.
Lel guy, yea go play rullete and fuck someone with it. If you dont read up on it I will welcome you removing yourself from the genepool.
That’s not at all true anymore, there are tons of medications to prevent infection. People with HIV can even have children that are HIV negative nowadays
@Tiaroendu479 But, why take the risk?
I think the best answer is "attraction is not a choice". You may get far enough in a relationship where they can disclose it. You really think you are going to shut off your heart at a drop of a dime?Plus, the more you know about HIV, the more comfortable you are about the options.
What if they got it from being raped?
There is no cure.
I could have sworn there was.
There is PrEP where you can take a pill daily to prevent HIV though. Its almost 98% effective
I learned something today.
