Q: How do people get HIV?

Senga 4 mins ago

A person gets HIV when an infected person's body fluids (blood, semen, fluids from the vagina, or breast milk) enter his or her bloodstream. The virus can enter the blood through linings in the mouth, anus, or sex organs (the penis and vagina), or through broken skin.

Both men and women can spread HIV. A person with HIV can feel okay and still transmit the virus to others. Pregnant women with HIV also can pass the virus to their babies.

Common ways people get HIV include; sharing a needle to take drugs, having unprotected sex with an infected person

You cannot get HIV from touching or hugging someone who has HIV/AIDS, public bathrooms or swimming pools, sharing cups, utensils, or telephones with someone who has HIV/AIDS and bug bites

    Aids is caused when an infected person with HIV contacts with a negative person and he or she has a wound because its spread through blood not kissing.You can kiss an infected person without a wound in their mouth and you remain negative same applies to having sexual intercourse.
