Who is an HIV specialist?

How can I avoid getting HIV?
Ans: Ways in which you can avoid getting HIV:
Always properly use a condom when you have sex.
Have sex with one uninfected person.
Do not use alcohol or drugs. That way you can make wise decisions based on sound reasoning.
Activities such as hugging, kissing, and rubbing do not spread HIV as long as there are no open wounds.
You cannot give yourself HIV by masturbating.
Can I get HIV if an infected person sneezes on me?
Ans: The body fluids containing large amounts of HIV are blood, semen, vaginal fluids, breast milk, and other fluids containing blood.
You cannot get it just by contacting fluids like a cold or flu.
Touching hands or touching someone’s skin will not cause you to get the virus.
Sharing a person with a drinking glass no longer spreads the virus.
Open mouth kisses (French) have a very small risk of getting the infection unless there are sores in the mouth or there is blood.
Can HIV be inherited?
Ans: This is called perinatal transmission of mother-to-child transmission.
Mother-to-child transmission is the most common way children get HIV.
Recommendations for HIV testing of all pregnant women and starting HIV treatment immediately reduce the number of babies born with HIV.
If an HIV-positive woman takes HIV medication as prescribed during pregnancy and childbirth, and gives her baby HIV medication 4 to 6 weeks after birth, the risk of transmission may be less than 1%.
Measures to take when you have HIV?
Ans: Here are some steps you can take to prevent the spread of HIV:
Use condoms accurately every time you have sex.
Talk to your partner about taking PrEP.
If you inject drugs, do not share your needles, syringes, or other drug items with your partner.
Limit the number of your sexual partner.
Ques: How to react when you get exposed to HIV?
Ans: HIV drugs are also used for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) and to prevent the transmission of HIV before birth.
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
PEP means taking HIV medication 72 hours after exposure to HIV to prevent HIV infection. PEP should only be used in emergencies. They are not designed for regular use by people who may be at risk of getting HIV regularly. For more information, read the HIVinfo Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) fact sheet.
Preventing the transmission of HIV before childbirth. HIV-positive pregnant women take HIV treatment to live their lives and prevent HIV transmission during pregnancy. After birth, babies born to HIV-positive women receive an antiretroviral drug to protect themselves from any mother-to-child transmission of HIV during childbirth. For more information, read the HIVinfo Fact Sheet on Preventing HIV Maternity Transmission.
