HIV and risk reduction strategies

Safe sex is having sexual contact while protecting yourself and your sexual partner against sexually transmissible infections (STIs) including HIV.

With much more safer sex strategies available, you can significantly reduce your chances of contracting or passing on to others.

Condoms

Condoms come in all different shapes and sizes, they can vary in colour, taste and offer different sensations….. You have your ribbed, sensitive and latex-free, we even have mango, pineapple and coconut to have yourself a good old cocktail…… So whether you’re a slimmer fit or super king guy, we have the condom for you.

They are the most effective way to protect yourself and your sexual partners from STIs.

No matter if you’re the top or bottom partner, or using whilst taking PrEP.

Condoms are mostly free and easy accessible from any of our m-test clinics, most gay bars, saunas, and most sexual health centres.

Undetectable = Unstransmittable (U=U)

You may have seen the term ‘undetectable viral load’ or UVL on profiles and social media? If not, the term undetectable viral load refers to  when a HIV positive person is on treatment, the amount of HIV is significantly reduced within the body (viral load) to an undetectable level, and therefore, HIV cannot be transmitted to their sexual partners, even when other strategies fail or are not used.
