Similarly, if a person is going to accept you and your diagnosis, timing of disclosure may not matter (as long as you tell before having sex). Although you may be tempted to wait to disclose your status until after a sexual encounter for fear of rejection or embarrassment, there are several important reasons NOT to do this: Some women living with HIV find it hard to think about dating because they feel less desirable or less appealing than HIV-negative women.
There are two main approaches to when to tell: Tell before the first kiss, often before the first date. It is important to remember that there is much more to you than your HIV.
If you are looking for a positive partner, consider going to places (online and in person) where you will meet other people living with HIV.
Educate yourself about these STDs before you become intimate with the person. Social and economic conditions, such as high rates of poverty, income equality, unemployment, low educational attainment and geographic isolation can make it more difficult for individuals to protect their sexual health. Abstinence is the most effective way to prevent contracting the disease between partners.
