HIV boyfriend

I want to know if just wearing a condom will prevent me from HIV if my boyfriend is Positive?

I hope so coz I love him, but we have not had sex yet.

Hi there,

Yes condoms, when used correctly and consistently and where there is no breakage or leakage, provide effective protection against sexually transmitted infections and HIV.

Then again, if you bf is HIV positive, you should both attend counseling from medical professional.
