Question: how to protect themselves?
A: it is necessary to explain the risk of HIV transmission, contraceptive methods, and safer sexual behaviors among all infected people and their sexual partners, especially pregnant women. If feasible, these people should receive condoms and adhere to the correct use of this contraceptive tool.
Women who have unprotected sex and who suspect they may be infected with the virus should be offered emergency contraception and counseling if they do not wish to become pregnant.
