Following diagnosis some people go off sex for a while, but living with HIV should not get in the way of a healthy and enjoyable sex life.

Condoms, when used correctly, prevent the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. We now know that people living with HIV who are on treatment and have an undetectable viral load cannot pass HIV to someone else. This is what is meant by U=U (Undetectable equals Untransmittable).  

With the correct clinical management HIV positive women can give birth to HIV negative babies.
