Even though Twitter polls are not scientific, here's what I learned from you this week. 58% of you knew that, people living with #HIV on effective treatment CAN'T pass on HIV to their sexual partner. That's impressive. #UequalsU
I've learned that, 75% of you have felt that alcohol and other drugs can impair your judgement when comes to #SaferSex decisions. That's understandable.
I've learned that the majority of you don't use condoms for Oral sex. This is not surprising. Picking up a bacterial STI from oral sex is lower risk compared to condomless vaginal or anal sex, but it can still happen. So #GetTested regularly.
I've learned that some of you have not yet tested for STIs or #HIV. I can really identify with this. I was sexual active for nearly 15 years before my first test. I let ignorance and fear stop me from looking after my health. #KnowYourStatus
While most of you have said that you've never been turned away from taking a STI and #HIV test. Half responded that they have never been tested. #KnowYourStatus
The takeaway from these straw polls is that, we have good intentions when it comes to looking after our #SexualHealth. But things don't always go to plan. Making snap judgements about people because of a negative outcome from sex doesn't motivate them to test, it creates shame.
