Doctor how do you tell your partner that you are HIV Positive when he/she is not?⚕️🎗
It is a difficult conversation to have. However, it is something that must be discussed.
Firstly, it is the right thing to do. Your partner should know about your HIV positive status. For that matter you should inform your partner about any other sexually transmitted infection (STI) that you might have. They have a right to know and you must tell them.
Knowledge about HIV or other STI status will help both of you to practice safe sex. This can minimise the chances of transmitting the infection to your partner.
Further, in many countries it is a legal requirement to inform your partner about HIV positivity or any other STI that you may be carrying.
You could consult a HIV counselor in your country who can help you in this. They are trained to handle situations like this and they can guide both of you on how to proceed with your relationship.
