Since anti-HIV treatments are so good it is not as important to practice safe sex anymore.
Myth. Anti-HIV treatment is excellent and can often be given as one pill per day with minimum side effects and allow for those infected to live long and healthy lives. Nevertheless, having HIV does affect one’'s life in many ways, both emotionally and physically. Living with HIV often requires changing one's approach to relationships, requires taking medications on a daily basis, and establishing a regular relationship with a health-care providerprofessional. Moreover, not everyone tolerates medications as well as others, and some people may experience an increased risk of developing other medical problems such as heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke. The good news is that if a person has HIV there is every reason to be optimistic, but it is still a chronic medical condition that is best avoided if at all possible.
