How To Prevent AIDS Disease The disease of HIV is indeed a dreadful one disease ever known. It falls in the same category as cancer or any other life-threatening health issue. Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS is a life-threatening disease because it is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) which severely damages the immune system. As a result, you easily fall prey to any kind of health disorder as your guard of the immune system is totally down. HIV generally occurs through sexually transmitted infection (STI). It can also spread from one person to another through infected blood, used syringe, from mother to child during pregnancy, at the time of childbirth or due to breastfeeding. Technically there is no cure for the problem of HIV or AIDS disease. There are some medications available that slow down the advancement of the disease. These drugs can curtail the number of deaths occurring due to AIDS disease. There are some symptoms of HIV or AIDS disease that tells you that you are gripped by this horrendous health problem. Initially, it shows flu-like illness within a span of one or two months after the virus enters the body. The most common signs of the disease are: • Headache • Fever • Rashes • Muscle aches and joint pains • Sore throat and painful mouth sores • Swollen lymph glands, particularly on the neck These are initial signs that you have to look out for in case you or anyone around you gets infected with HIV virus. There are some ways through which you can prevent this dreadful disease from griping you in its clutch. Precaution and safety are the golden rules that you have to remember if you want to stay away from the disease of AIDS or HIV. Practice safe sex The key thing in protecting yourself from the disease of HIV or AIDS is practicing safe sex. Always use a condom while having sex with the partner to cut down the risk of getting affected by the disease of HIV. This is one of the thumb rules that you have to follow whenever you have sex. Also, know how to wear the condom properly so that it does not tear away while having sex and you become exposed to the HIV virus. Avoid sharing needles Under no circumstances, you should share a used needle. In many cases, the HIV virus gets spread from the usage of shared needles which were earlier used by any HIV patient. So next time you are going to take a shot, insist on fresh needles and do not get injected by any used needles. Know your partner’s status If you are going to get married or in a long-term relationship, it is better to get yourself tested for HIV before you jump into the sack with each other. This will not only reveal the medical condition of the man or the woman but will also define a lot about their sexual habits. Avoid having sex Getting tempted by sex is no unusual thing, and most of the people think about hitting the bed to explore the region of sex. But without knowing the creditability of the partner or his or her past medical background about HIV, it is better to control your urge of having sex. Avoid blood transmission Do not take or transmit blood until and unless all test is negative of HIV. On many instances, blood transfusion becomes the reason for spreading of disease. Stay faithful The best thing to avoid the disease from affecting you is staying faithful with one sexual partner instead of sleeping around with every other girl or guy that comes across you. This will reduce the chances of HIV infection drastically.
