Blink, and you’ll miss it! Options to prevent HIV and STIs are ever evolving. Condoms work for many people, but for those of us who don't use condoms all the time, there are other ways to have safer sex too! Current HIV prevention methods include, but aren’t limited to, getting tested regularly, being on PrEP, staying on medication, and being aware of our partners’ status. Some of us might do these things instead of using condoms, and some of us might do these things in combination with condoms. So whatever our HIV status or viral load, staying current with methods of prevention can be one way to #resiststigma.
