How to Reduce Chances of HIV through Sex
Don't have Sex
Sex that is anal, oral, or vaginal is the main way of getting affected by HIV. The simple fact is that if you are not having sexual contact then you are 100% protected from getting HIV in that way. Abstaining from sexual intercourse is the best that you can do to keep yourself safe.
Another way in which you can steer away from HIV is to practice monogamy which means that you are in a sexual relationship with only one person and that both of you are only having sex with each other. This is a good way of reducing your chances of getting HIV by choosing only one sex partner. However, you must be sure that both you and your partner are not infected.
Get tested and Find out about Your Partner
By knowing your own and your partner’s HIV status will help you and your partner a lot, as it is important for both of your health. It can get difficult to talk about it, but it’s important for the sake of your life! Get tested now.
Use Condoms the Right Way
In order to reduce your risk of getting HIV or other STDs, the most important thing to do is to use condoms while in that cat of sexual intercourse. You must be careful to see that the condom you are using is new, and of good quality, and never forget to use a new condom with every act of oral, or vaginal sex. You must also make sure to use condoms correctly, in order to keep them from slipping off or breaking.
Safer Sex Activities
Certain sexual activities do not carry any risk of HIV transmission, such as non-sexual message, casual or dry kissing, masturbation while making sure to avoid your partner’s body fluids, and frottage, also known as dry humping or body to body rub.
