Anytime you have unprotected sex you could be exposed to HIV. Even if it is only occasional, you should know your status if you have ever had sex without a condom.
Anytime you engage in unprotected sex can lead to exposure to HIV. An undiagnosed partner can transmit the virus even if you both are holding true to your monogamous relationship.
The rates of heterosexual transmission in our community are rising. Self-care goes deeper than the skin. Get tested if you or your partner have previously had sex without the protection of a condom.
You can enjoy healthy sexual relationships and live a full life if you, or your partner is HIV positive. Treatment is available and when taken, can help to maintain an undetectable level of the virus, which cannot be passed on. Take control of your sexual health and know your status.
