Question Asked:

"Hi, I just found out that the girl I just started dating about a month ago is HIV+. she kept it away from me. I became suspicious when I caught taking a tablet of (lamivudine, zidovudine and nevirapine). I had to goggle what the drug was used for and I was shocked to discover the truth. I’m yet to confront her that I know her status cos I’m still shocked and I don’t even know what to do. Now my question is, does this mean I’m now HIV+? We have had unprotected sex about four times now. I’m so scared. "

    Hello sir, I can only imagine how you may be feeling as trust is paramount in any relationship. There is indeed a risk of exposure to the virus as you had unprotected sex. However, it may be good she is on drugs as this may help reduce the risk. You will need to go for voluntary counselling before you decide to take the test. Do take care.
