help my friend
Apr 22, 2004

My friends'girlfriend has AIDS. She's pressuring him to do "it" . He's in 8th. She's a senior in high school!! Every time my friends and I try to help him the more he seems to want to do "it" .Please help me to help him!!quick!!

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

It's important for your friend to understand that not only does he stand the chance of becoming infected but that his girfriend may pass the virus to the baby if she becomes pregnant. Condoms are sometihing that he could use to lessen the risk that he may become infected or that his girlfriend could become pregnant. Learning about safe sex would also be helpful; there's a lot of information about "safe sex" on this web site and a Forum on Safe Sex, where you can ask experts questions. I would urge you and your friends to check them out.

Both positive, want a child
do I need to check or not
