High Risk Behaviors Infected HIV

AIDS or Acquired Immunodeficiency called Syndrome is a collection of symptoms or illness caused by the decreased immunity due to infection by HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Know that the HIV virus is very weak in the outside air, but can live in the human body through a medium such as liquid vagina, sperm / semen, blood and breast milk of the mother. Therefore, it needs to be clear understanding and knowledge about the transmission of AIDS so that we can avoid and prevent the progression of AIDS.

AIDS caused by the HIV virus to date cannot be cured. Therefore, prevention of the HIV virus is a major effort in the prevention of AIDS. The risk of transmission of HIV is increased by doing risky behavior. Let's see the actual behavior that can increase the risk of transmission of HIV - AIDS in our daily lives.

Free Sex

Free sex is identical with behavior changing sexual partners. Free sex is very risky when you have intercourse without knowing your partner's HIV status. Even if you already use a condom during intercourse you still have a risk of contracting HIV, because the condom cannot 100% protect you from HIV. In this case, the more pairs you have in the free sex, the higher the risk you have to be infected with the HIV virus. Avoid free sex and start a monogamous relationship with your spouse is a powerful way to prevent contracting the HIV virus

Men who are not circumcised

Uncircumcised men can experience a buildup of smegma (yellow mucus buildup) behind the head of the penis. Smegma can be a source of infection for both men and facilitate the entry of the HIV virus.
