    Using condoms can minimise the spread of HIV. If you know you have the virus, then always use condoms to minimise the transmission risk. The other key to minimising transmission is ensuring you have an undectable viral load, which means that when you have a blood test no HIV can be found. This means that nay medications you have been prescribed by your specialists must be taken daily and for life. In NSW you must disclose that your are HIV to someone you intend having sexual intercourse with whether they are male or female.
