I have not herad about it and i'm not sure that it really works. i dont think that there can be some useful method that will prevent HIV. it's impossible and not right. i think that the best way to prevent yourself from hiv is condom, yes it is very simple and not so expensive but it will definitely help you . and what i want to advice more is to take care more discretion in choosing your sex partner. if will do it then there no reasons to worry.
I have some information about it. Truvada is a type of medicine called a nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor that is used to treat HIV-1 infection in adults and teenagers (12 and older). Truvada is a combination therapy because it has 2 medicines in 1 pill– emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. Truvada is always used with other anti-HIV medicines to treat HIV-1 infection because Truvada alone is not a complete treatment.
Hello. I have not heard anything about such a medicine. Honestly, I have never encountered in my time people who are sick with this terrible HIV disease. I hope and never will collide. Of course, who probably suffers this disease himself or he has such acquaintances, knows more about possible treatments or some drugs. I'm not strong in this area. It's terrible that there are such diseases that are included in the group of the incurable. Although sometimes there are cases of recovery, but this is very rare, and is considered a miracle.
