Some people will call and say I’m worried about being HIV positive.
You’ve probably heard a lot about how the virus is transmitted but the truth is that there are only a few ways you can get HIV.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths about how HIV is transmitted, which can get in the way of the facts and confuse people.
Instead of worrying about HIV, learn how it’s transmitted and what you can do to protect yourself.
It’s normal to worry about testing for HIV and what your result will be, but testing is the only way to know for sure if you have the virus. If you think you’ve put yourself at risk, or you’re at risk because of your situation, then get tested. It’s never a bad idea to test, even if it’s just to stop you from worrying.
People often don’t test for HIV or put off testing because they’re worried about what it means to be positive, what the test involves, or what other people will think. So remember being HIV Positive is not the end of life. Get tested today.
