A Nigerian doctor has taken to social media to reveal that there is a higher chance of a man getting HIV from his girlfriend than from a prostitute.
According to the young man identified on Twitter as Dr. Penking, an NGO carried out HIV tests on all the prostitutes in a brothel but didn’t record any positive case.
He stated that it’s because the call girls are careful having realized that their job is risky, so they hardly allow their clients to sleep with them without protection.
Dr. Penking said a girlfriend on the other hand usually has unprotected s*x with her man and also does the same with other men, which leaves her boyfriend vulnerable to get the deadly virus.
His post reads; “An NGO did HIV test in a brothel yesterday. They didn’t get even one positive. Quite surprisingly, it is more likely for your girlfriend to be HIV positive than it is for a prost!tute. This is because your girlfriend will allow you and two others hit raw. Use condom always.
Name of NGO is .@GileadHope and they are committed to providing free healthcare to the most vulnerable groups of people in Nigeria and Africa”
For the purpose of education, HIV causes AIDS and interferes with the body’s ability to fight infections.
The virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen or vaginal fluids. Within a few weeks of HIV infection, flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat and fatigue can occur.
Then the disease is usually asymptomatic until it progresses to AIDS. AIDS symptoms include weight loss, fever or night sweats, fatigue and recurrent infections.
No cure exists for AIDS, but strict adherence to antiretroviral regimens (ARVs) can dramatically slow the disease’s progress as well as prevent secondary infections and complications.
