Abstinence from sex until marriage and faithfulness after marriage is frequently promoted as a means of preventing HIV transmission, and if both partners are both abstinent and faithful, it will be effective. However, abstaining from sex until marriage is often the exception rather than the rule, and a partner who abstained can contract HIV from one who did not. Honest communication is critical. In many cultures, discussing sex is taboo, which contributes to HIV transmission. Changing cultures...

Phil Johnson, M.D. discusses why it's so important for HIV/AIDS patients to follow their antiretroviral (ARV) medication regimen as prescribed. During active infection, up to 10 billion HIV particles will be created each day. This provides ample chance for the virus to mutate in ways that provide resistance to the medication. By keeping the blood levels of the ARV medication high, that will keep the viral load low and reduce the opportunity for resistance mutations to flourish. When HIV...

Becky Kuhn, M.D., explains why it's so important for HIV positive people who are on antiretroviral medications (ARVs) to take their medications at the prescribed dosages on the prescribed schedules. This will reduce the risk of developing a strain of HIV that is resistant to the ARV medication.

Cass Mann, an HIV-positive gay man and the founder of UKâs only gay menâs HIV/AIDS charity Positively Healthy (http://www.posh-uk.org.uk/), talks about the dangers of playing away. If you're in a relationship with someone and you don't know what they're doing when you're apart, or you suspect they're having sex with other partners, or they have admitted having sex with other partners, end the relationship. If your partner loves you, they won't be playing away. Cut your losses. It's not worth...

In this unscripted interview, Dr. Becky Kuhn discusses the factors patients say contributed to their contracting HIV. Patients have cited rejection by their families, low self-esteem, longing for love, disconnection from their religious community, alienation from God, and boredom as factors contributing to contracting HIV. Recreational use of Viagra and crystal methamphetamine may contribute to further transmission after becoming HIV positive. She also discusses how physicians can more fully...

Becky Kuhn, M.D. discusses how the use of crystal methamphetamine (a.k.a. meth, tina, crank, speed, tweak, ice, glass, or crystal) is contributing to the spread of HIV. Meth initially increases the sex drive, enables the user to stay awake for long periods, and reduces inhibitions. A California study showed that 25% of occasional users and 40% of chronic users are HIV positive. Methamphetamine is highly addictive. Users develop infected sores on the skin and face, often causing scarring and the...

If a woman who is HIV positive becomes pregnant, there's a risk that her baby will contract HIV during pregnancy, childbirth, or breast feeding. Becky Kuhn, M.D. explains how the risk can be reduced through the use of antiretroviral medications for the mother and the infant and the use of formula instead of breast feeding. These guidelines are for women in developed countries with reliable access to ARVs, formula, and clean water. Visit http://www.AIDSvideos.org/ to learn more about HIV. Visit...

Phil Johnson, M.D. discusses issues in HIV prevention related to honest disclosure and communication. People who wish to have sex with a new partner may lie about their status, saying it's negative when it's positive or unknown. People may also tell a partner they are being faithful in a monogamous relationship when in fact they are having sex outside the relationship as well. This means that if you have unprotected sex with a partner, you are betting your life on their being honest with you....

Are you pregnant or thinking about having a baby? Then this video is for you. If you are HIV positive, it is entirely possible to have an HIV negative baby. However, your child may become infected with HIV during pregnancy, childbirth or while breastfeeding. If you take NO steps to protect your child from HIV and breastfeed the baby, there is between one chance in five and almost one chance in two that your child will become HIV positive. If you take NO steps to protect your child and do not...

Danny West is a trainer, coach, and leadership consultant, has been living with HIV for the past 24 years, and remains healthy today. It's important to realize that combination therapy with antiretroviral medications is not a cure. It will help your immune system fight HIV, but the person with HIV can still transmit the virus to others through routes such as sexual contact and needle sharing. The stigma and prejudice associated with HIV is one of the major issues that people living with HIV are...

Disclosure seems like a minefield, but in reality it's really simple. If you are HIV positive and want to have sex with someone, you need to disclose your HIV status to them. Do you tell them and risk rejection, or do you not tell and have your way with them? Most gay men who don't disclose choose...

Danny West is a trainer, coach, and leadership consultant, has been living with HIV for the past 24 years, and remains healthy today. When he was diagnosed with HIV, he was given 18 months to live, so he decided to take long-term sickness leave and take stock of his situation. Since then, being HIV positive has been the springboard for leading the life of his dreams. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, the focus of HIV was on death and dying. He has seen many friends and family members die of...

Cass Mann, an HIV-positive gay man and the founder of UKâs only gay menâs HIV/AIDS charity Positively Healthy (http://www.posh-uk.org.uk/), notes that Eastern philosophers say that 99% of humanity is unconscious. If your world is your club, back room, dark room, adult videos, and Internet sex-on-demand, you're leading an unconscious lifestyle, and this unconsciousness will kill you. To the world at large, the "Gay" identity is AIDS identity--a hedonistic and narcissistic identity....

People ask what the risk is that they have already contracted HIV. Becky Kuhn, M.D. explains that there is no way to reliably estimate what the risk is that a particular individual already has or has not contracted HIV. There are too many variables that play a role and that are difficult or impossible to quantify. In reality, either you have already contracted HIV, or you have not. Speculating won't help you, your partners, or your loved ones. If you think you may have been exposed to HIV or...

Phil Johnson, M.D. explains why it's so important to use a condom EVERY TIME you have sex with a person who is HIV positive or whose HIV status you do not know. The risk of HIV transmission is greatest right after a person has been first infected, even if an antibody test wouldn't show them as HIV positive yet. In studies of married couples where one partner was HIV positive and the other was HIV negative, if they used condoms EVERY time they had sex, there was no HIV transmission, but if they...

Becky Kuhn, M.D., co-founder of Global Lifeworks, covers critical basic information about HIV and AIDS. HIV is a virus that causes the disease AIDS. There are treatments but no cure. HIV is spread by contact between an infected person's body fluids and another person's mucous membranes. It is spread by sexual contact, injection drugs users sharing needles, from mother to child during childbirth or nursing, and by receiving transfusions of infected blood. You can reduce your risk by abstaining...
