Can I date if I have HIV?
HIV passes from one person to another during sex through body fluids like semen, vaginal fluid, and anal mucus. But with the right precautions, you can have sex with almost no risk of passing the virus to your partner. One way to be safe is to take antiretroviral treatment (ART).
Do people with HIV know when they have it?
You can have HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, and not know it. You also can have been exposed to HIV but not necessarily be infected. About 1 in 7 people who are HIV-positive are unaware of it. The only way to know if you are infected is to get an HIV test.
