This is a good way of reducing your chances of getting HIV by choosing only one sex partner. However, you must be sure that both you and your partner are not infected.

Get tested and Find out about Your Partner

By knowing your own and your partner’s HIV status will help you and your partner a lot, as it is important for both of your health. It can get difficult to talk about it, but it’s important for the sake of your life! Get tested now.

You must also make sure to use condoms correctly, in order to keep them from slipping off or breaking.

Safer Sex Activities

Certain sexual activities do not carry any risk of HIV transmission, such as non-sexual message, casual or dry kissing, masturbation while making sure to avoid your partner’s body fluids, and frottage, also known as dry humping or body to body rub.
