Diabetic dating and singles
If you aren’t going to be in a situation where HIV could be transmitted, there’s no need to tell your date, but sooner or later, in any relationship, “it will be important to talk about your HIV status.The longer you wait, the more difficult it gets,” they note.
If it happens it probably happens in the first couple of years of infection, and after that it’s rare.”That’s one reason that if your viral load is undetectable in each of you, some doctors now say that you do not need to use condoms, because an undetectable viral load means you cannot pass along HIV—whether your sex partner is positive or not.
Everyone in the dating world is afraid of rejection, whether it’s because we have baggage (kids, exes, trauma), we don’t fit social expectations (of age, size, appearance, cultural background), we’re awkward at socializing (nerdy, shy, introverted), or have one of the myriad of other characteristics that make us unique.
Women get judged for what they look like from the moment they’re aware of the world, so insecurity can often be our fallback position, with or without a chronic medical condition.
But do not douche or use an enema; both set the stage for infection.
If you’re both HIV-positive, you should both see your doctors and talk to them about possible reinfection.
