Many people put off having an HIV test as they are worried about the consequences of testing positive. Early diagnosis is key to living a normal but positive life, so if you are sexually active, and want to be responsible for you and your partners’ health, you should get an STD test regularly.
Better2Know works with the Terrence Higgins Trust – the UK’s leading HIV and Sexual Health charity – where there are online forums and discussions to help you get the help and support you need. Practical advice from who to tell and when to tell them, overcoming stigma and discrimination and supporting other positive people. The website myhiv.org.uk is only accessible to the HIV positive community, and is a great resource to help you continue to live your life to the full.
