    HIV, once deadly, is now a disease that is manageable to a degree with the advancement in medication to deal with it, and albeit shorter than normal life span, many are expected to live rather a reasonable duration of life if on a proper treatment.

    However, it doesn't make it less scary by any means still, since it appears to not stop it eventually progressing into AIDS, and that seems to lead to eventually and ultimately, a life-threatening and grave disorders which would see one say good bye to his loved ones.

    Just a shout out to all the people who's living with it, and hopefully things work out for everyone and best luck!

    I'm just curious, what does one do if you know who you got HIV from? Do you confront him about it? OR, do you just go on your own way feeling like you just got deadly diseases from someone whom you met online who may have known it but have not told you?( or he didn't know but still screwed you big time forever)

    Thoughts?

    If I got HIV from someone and knew for certain it came from them, you bet your ass I'd tell them. If they choose to be douches and sleep around with other men even after knowing, then there's nothing you can do about that. However, I'd be willing to bet many more men would do the right thing, get tested for themselves to confirm, and then adapt their lives accordingly. You owe it not just to them, but to anyone they sleep with in the future...the trick is finding a way to tell them without being a dick about it. My two cents.

    It's a felony to not inform your sexual partner if you're HIV+ in many states.

    I'm not sure how you would know that one specific guy gave you HIV unless he was the only person you'd had ever had unprotected sex with.

    Getting infected with HIV in this day and time, is just as much the responsibility of the person who got infected as the one who did the infecting. Everyone knows the possibility of contracting HIV from unprotected sex or sharing hypodermic needles. It is not like you would be faultless. Men are no longer children who need their mothers there to hold their hands and protect them from all the evils in life. Everyone is responsible for their own actions. Of course this totally excludes anyone who may have been raped or was accidentally purposely infected by blood to blood contact.

    I do, however, believe that the CDC ( in the US) will still pay you visit and ask you if you know who infected you, and all of your sexual partners you have had sex with, but it has been a long time since I was providing HIV education, so I don't know if it is still a requirement that doctors report all new HIV infections to the CDC.

    Yeah, I would just confront them. I wouldn't know what to think about them anymore. I would say to myself, "I love him but he gived me AIDS? Did he even knew beforehand?"

    I remember as a 11-12 year old, they drilled into our heads about the danger from AIDS. I remember it as," Don't share needles or become bloodbuddies. AIDS is bad. Aids screws you for life. Get AIDS, you die!"icon_eek.gif

    What if it was protected sex within a relationship longer than 6 months? I think it's pretty reasonable to expect anyone with HIV to disclose their status before sex, if asked.

    I would have to agree .. but personally ... I would want proof of results before having unprotected sex ... and I would have be sure this was the guy for me and I was the guy for him ... otherwise .. it will only be safe sex only

    Jaggal saidYou should also be careful, you're not a kid. You choose to swallow (low, but existent HIV risk), you choose to bareback, then accept the consequences of your actions.

    This is why there are condoms to reduce the risk and having less sexual partners overall will help not getting HIV.
