Can I still have sex?

This is a common question for many HIV positive people. The answer is simple - Yes you can.

Having HIV does not mean you can not have sex. It just means that when you do you need to use a condom for both vaginal and/or anal sex. Fortunately here in Victoria you do not need to disclose your HIV status to your sexual partner as long as you are using condoms. This can be a relief for many people living with HIV. If you live in another state of Australia you need to check your legal obligations re HIV, Sex and disclosure.
