HIV And AIDS Prevention

Until this time, no vaccine was able to prevent HIV infection. However, infection is prevented by more than one of the following:

 Use a new condom every sex related, whether sex is through the vagina or through the anus. When deciding on a lubricant condom, make sure the lubricant is made of basic water. Avoid condoms with lubricants made from basic oil, because it is able to cause condoms leaked. For oral sex, take advantage of unlubricated condoms.
Avoid having sex with more coming from one partner. Tell your spouse if you are positive in HIV, so that your spouse has HIV test. Discuss with the doctor if you are diagnosed with HIV positive in pregnancy, regarding subsequent treatment and plan of childbirth, to prevent transmission from mother to fetus.
For men, it is recommended circumcision to reduce the risk of HIV infection.
Immediately to the doctor if it is suspected to have been infected with HIV, if it is related to sex with HIV sufferers. The Doctor is able to prescribe post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) medication, to be consumed for 28 days. PEP drug is a combination of 3 antiretroviral drugs, which are able to prevent the growth of HIV infection. Nevertheless, the therapy with PEP must begin a maximum of 3 days after a viral infection occurs.
