The sooner you start meds and take them diligently (meaning every day), the sooner you will become undetectable.
People with an undetectable viral load — I’ll explain what that means in the next question — are unable to transmit the virus.
That said, some people, both HIV positive and HIV negative, choose to serosort. If your doctor diagnosed you with AIDS, you may have seen some changes in your body already. If HIV is left untreated, in time it will progress to AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
Thankfully, we have medications that reduce the level of HIV in your blood to the point that you can live an extremely healthy life (undetectability).
I assumed everyone else would be equally afraid of it. Today, my sex life is better than it ever was before my diagnosis.

Some people wait until they’re undetectable before having sex again. As long as your sex partners know your HIV status and consent to have sex with you, you can have sex. Safer sex practices include condoms and Pr EP, the once daily pill that prevents HIV transmission.
Serosorting is the practice of only dating people with the same HIV status as you, whether that’s positive or negative, for health reasons.
Today, there are more and better ways to treat and prevent HIV than there were even twenty years ago, so serosorting is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.
Life isn’t always easy, but I can say confidently that HIV has not stopped me from meeting and dating and fucking sexy people.
I use it as a litmus test to weed out unwanted partners: If you’re not cool with my status, you don’t get the rest of me.
