I’m a 25-year-old woman

who is HIV positive. I’m afraid of

telling my new partner about my

status. I’m worried because he

doesn’t want to use a condom

when we make love. What should

I do?

Sis Naledi answers: 

It is irresponsible to have

unprotected sex if you are

living with HIV. You must

tell your partner about your

status so that he can make a

choice for himself. Unfortunately,

you cannot keep a person in a

relationship with lies.
