My boyfriend won’t test and I am worried he might be positive?
In 2015 I was diagnosed HIV positive. I am on ARV treatment but unfortunately my boyfriend doesn’t believe in testing. We have a child now who is one year old but negative, but I am worried about my boyfriend. He has been complaining about loss of appetite and his stomach always not in a good condition could that he be coming sick?
The only way to know if your boyfriend is HIV positive is for him to take a test.
No matter how much he wants to deny this – or is afraid of the result – the test is essential. Too many people delay testing until it is too late.
This is especially important as you will now be doing well on treatment and you have a child to look after for the future. Are there are people who he will listen to?
I hope that he changes his mind and take a test. Perhaps show him the answer to this question.
He is lucky to have someone looking out for him, and the result might even be negative :)
