How do I disclose my HIV status to a potential partner?

Disclosure of your HIV status is often very difficult and can be one of the largest hurdles to entering a relationship. There is no right or wrong time to do this. Legally, here in Victoria, you are not obligated to disclose your HIV status as long as you are using a condom with your partner.

Some people choose to be up front and disclose straight away. Others prefer to wait a while to see which way their relationship heads before they choose to disclose.

Ultimately, there is no real easy way to do this.
