How to disclose your status and when should you disclose to your partner if you guys are not physically sexual active and you're undectable. Is that something you tell everyone you encounter yourself even if they're just friend's?


It really is a personal

It really is a personal choice, and should be made within your personal comfort zone. My biggest pice of advice is to always know where you are and how YOU feel about where you are in your status. Not only will other folks will vibe off that a lot and treat you accordingly, but knowing your truth can help take some of the sting out of ignorance. Be well!

Hiiiiiii Brittany! 

This is always such an interesting conversation. We actually just did an A Girl Like Me LIVE episode on Dating and Disclosure. It was such a good chat! Here is the link: https://www.thewellproject.org/hiv-information/dating-and-hiv

Me, personally, I tell people very quickly. Yet, others choose to wait. There is no right way. Maybe even this Dating and HIV fact sheet can help! https://www.thewellproject.org/hiv-information/dating-and-hiv

Best wishes!
