Not having sex is the most effective way to avoid transmitting HIV to others. If you choose to have sex, use a latex condom to help protect your partner from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). If either you or your partner is allergic to latex, plastic (polyurethane) condoms for either the male or female can be used.
