Analysis of data Of the participants who completed the survey, the responses of participants were included in our analysis.
In addition, an estimated million curable sexually transmitted infections STIs occur each year.
Previously, we assessed unsafe sexual behaviours of Nepalese HIV-positive men and their knowledge about the consequences of unsafe sex A condom may break, particularly if it has not been stored properly or the right lubricant has not been used.
Then, the interviewers conducted face-to-face interviews in a private place. The high level included scores above the median and the low level included scores below or at the median score.
If you think you might be at risk, it's important that you get tested, even if you don't have any symptoms.
We averaged across the items of each scale to form composite measures; the median score of each scale was 2. We selected the participants using a snowball sampling method as the detailed database of HIV-positive people was not available to select them randomly.
Such behaviour on the part of HIV-positive people might be considered a rational response as it does not spread HIV infection to negative partners. Significant resources are also being devoted to strengthening behavioural and epidemiological surveillance systems at country level and mapping and monitoring health sector action, in order to ensure that programs and resources are deployed where they are most needed and will yield the most benefit.
Each participant reported intention to practise safer sex with seroconcordant partners, know-ledge about the consequences of having unprotected sex with seroconcordant partners, perceived partner-related barriers to condom-use, belief that condoms interfere with sex, and condom-use self-efficacy.
However, unprotected sexual intercourse among HIV-positive seroconcordant partners can pose serious health risks for themselves. However, condoms do offer the best available protection when used correctly.
The only way to find out for sure is to do a pregnancy test.
