Should I disclose my HIV status
Jun 1, 2009

I have been casually dating someone for about 1 month( no sexual contact) should I disclose my status to him?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Exactly when to disclose and how to disclose one's positive HIV status are different questions. In general I suggest disclosing sooner rather than later. Take a read through the archives of the Safer Sex and HIV Prevention forum. There you will find an entire chapter devoted to issues surrounding HIV disclosure.

Good luck.
