The reality is that there are new ways to have fun, worry-free sex with the person you want, while maintaining full control over your sexual health – whether you’re living with HIV, or not.
Preventing HIV is now easier with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) if you are HIV-negative. And antiretroviral treatment can reduce the level of virus if you’re living with HIV to such a low level that it’s undetectable and untransmittable (this is the ‘undetectable = untransmittable’, or U=U, message). As well as this, there’s new ways to self-test for HIV without even leaving the house.
The world is changing out there, so you would be forgiven for being confused.
So whether this is all rather new to you – or you’re clued-up but looking for some extra information to share with your friends – check out the pages above.
