Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Wearing protection is your way of preventing HIV transmission. But however, remember that other sexually transmitted infections can/or may occur with protection. My recommendation for you is that you get a screening with a health care provider for sexually transmitted infections to ensure that both you and your potential partner will be fine.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
