Es cuando se dice que una persona es seropositiva; es decir, que tiene el virus pero aun no ha desarrollado la enfermedad.

Todos los que no expongamos a cualqiera de las formas de transmision nos podemos contagiar del virus, sin importar nuestro sexo, edad, raza, orientacion sexual o condicion social.

Contacto sexual con una persona infectada, cuando existe intercambio con fluidos corporales: semen, liquido preeyeculatoriom fluidos vahinales y menstruales. 2. A traves de una transfusion de sangre infectada, depositada en aguas y jeringas, y trasplantes de organos contaminados. 3. A traves de una madre infectada, a su hijo por nacer, durante el embarazo, el parto o al amamantarlo. Como se puede evitar el contagio del SIDA? 1. No teniendo relaciones sexuales o teniendolas con una sola pareja que no este infectada y que sea fiel. 2. Evitando el intercambio de fluidos corporales mediante practicas de relaciones sexuales sin penetracion (Sexo Seguro). 3.

Translation: Risks of Contagion 9 out of 10 AIDS sufferers acquired HIV before the age of 25 AIDS HIV-AIDS is an infectious disease caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which attacks the human defense system and leaves it unprotected against any microorganism. The virus enters the body and reproduces without causing symptoms for a long time. This is when a person is said to be HIV positive; That is, they have the virus but they have not yet developed the disease. Little by little viruses attack the body's defenses and leave the body exposed to diseases and infections that can cause death. Anyone who exposes themselves to any of the forms of transmission can get the virus, regardless of our sex, age, race, sexual orientation or social condition. HIV-AIDS is transmitted through three mechanisms: 1. Sexual contact with an infected person, when there is exchange with body fluids: semen, pre-ejaculatory fluid, vaginal and menstrual fluids. 2. Through transfusion of infected blood, deposited in water and syringes, and transplants of contaminated organs. 3. An unborn child, through an infected mother, during pregnancy, childbirth or when breastfeeding. How can you prevent the spread of AIDS? 1. Not having sex or being with a single partner who is not infected and who is faithful. 2. Avoiding the exchange of body fluids through sexual intercourse without penetration (Safe Sex). 3. Use a barrier that prevents such an interchange, such as a condom (Protected Sex) 4. Only using blood for transfusions that have been previously analyzed and thus is virus-free (Safe Blood) 5. Always use disposable syringes and needles. Why is it important to use a condom? Because using condoms can save your life, since if used correctly and regularly, it will prevent infection. Sexual practice with condoms is known as Protected Sex. How is HIV / AIDS NOT transmitted? HIV-AIDS is not transmitted by: Greeting or embracing people living with the virus Sharing utensils with people who have the disease Sneezing Bathing in the same bathroom or pool By mosquito bites or other insects. www.gentejoven.org.mx 55 73 00 / 55 73 73 48 gente joven Mexfam Health for your family
