See the tweets of a lady who posted about her boy friend hiding his HIV status from her for a long time
The time when HIV used to be a killer disease is long gone and many people would tell you its now just like having hypertension.
I create a new account to post this.. I find out that my bf is taking ARVs and he never told me anything about him being sick and I sometimes sleep with him without condom now am scared to go for test. I don't think I can handle this.. Please help. Am dying here https://t.co/LoCwCPa9Eu— Angel.. Mash (@AngelMash8) June 21, 2019
However, many people have the disease without knowing they have it, or they know, but due to fear of discrimination, they desist from sharing their status even with their loved ones
ARD is Anti-Retroviral Drug that's used by people living with HIV to prevent the HIV viral DNA from replication within the host, as HIV is known to use the host's own replicating mechanism to factor out its own replication.
Upon multiplication to a certain percentage if control measure is not put in place (not using ARD regularly) or failure to go for regular check up, the viral load overwhelms the immune system and the an immune cell called the Cd4 begins to decline, giving room for other diseases to set in. Yoruba would always say "ti iya nla ba gbeni sanle, kekere a ma gun ori eni" , that's what HIV does to you. People are hereby advised to go for regular HIV tests.
