There are different ways to transmit HIV, and one of the most common modes of transmission is through the exchange of bodily fluids during unprotected sexual intercourse.

Transmitting HIV

Other ways to transmit and spread HIV are by sharing used needles and syringes to inject drugs into the body, from an HIV-positive mother to her child during delivery and childbirth, exposure to contaminated blood through blood transfusion or organ transplant, and breastfeeding.

So, to avoid HIV, always observe the proper precaution.

Always use protection when having sex, most especially if you have multiple sex partners.

Stop injecting drugs into your body as this puts you at greater risk for HIV, as well as the negative side effects of drugs.

Be informed and have the accurate information on HIV and AIDS in mind. These infections are not transmitted through saliva, sweat, urine, tears, or vomit. Do not simply believe what other people are saying. Talk to a medical professional about it if you really want to know the right things.

Of course, it is necessary to undergo HIV testing routinely so that you will know what the current status of your sexual health is.

You can use a rapid HIV test kit by STD Rapid Test Kits to test for HIV accurately, safely, and conveniently.
