Long term partners

Disclosing your HIV status to your long-term partner can be very emotional for both of you. Your partner may not react in the way you expect and there may be concern about the risk of HIV being passed on. Your partner might need to have an HIV test and could have to wait until a window period has passed to do so, which can be stressful.

Another idea is to take you partner to one of your clinic appointments so that they can meet your doctor and ask questions.
