It reminds me of the current season with Autumn leaving and Winter quickly approaching. Thanksgiving is gone but like an unwelcomed guest HIV has decided to stick around a little longer...)

Learn my 5 B's of HIV to avoid transmitting and acquiring this virus that just won't let us alone!

"Dr. Jeri's 5 B's of HIV/AIDS transmission:"

  1. Blood: contaminated blood products

  2. Body Fluids: vaginal secretions and semen

  3. Breast milk: breast milk of an HIV infected mother is another way to transmit the virus to infants

  4. Birthing: an HIV infected mother can transmit the virus to her baby at any time during the birthing process, especially if she is not taking medications to prevent the baby from acquiring the virus

  5. 'Banging': sex of any kind, especially unprotected sex will place you at risk for acquiring HIV
