Do my family need to be tested for HIV if i am HIV positive?
I was just wondering,

If i found out that i was HIV positive, would my family members (the people who live under the same roof as me) need to be tested for HIV as well? Is there any treatment? And would my relatives need to be tested as well?

Thanks.

Yes, I think you should. There's a very strong posibility that they can be or are infected with it. Don't wait. I just recently took a science test and I learned that it severly damages your immune system, which means it can lower the white blood cells produced to fight bacteria and virues. Long story short---don't wait. But also do what you feel is right.

yes. just incase they have it.

It wouldn't hurt to get your family tested, just to be on the safe side.

Nope. Unless you practice incest or share needles.

Personally, I think it's both wise and fair that you tell your family the truth.

I recommend you speak to a HIV trained advisor re this as they will be able to question you on your living arrangements and advise accordingly. In my opinion your question falls outside the scope of Yahoo answers as I do not have enough info about you to answer it.

Probably not, unless there is a possibility of bodily fluids exchanging.

Except for a spouse, partner/partners, or someone you shared a needle with, no one else should need tested for HIV were you to have it.

For HIV to be passed on, the body fluids of someone who is already infected have to get into an uninfected person's body and then into their bloodstream.

But not all bodily fluids will carry enough of the virus to infect others.

For example contact with blood from the infected person can infect another, but saliva won't.

There is no cure for HIV. However, there are drugs that can help stop HIV reproducing and can drive down the amount of the virus in your body to very low levels. This is known as combination therapy.

If you would like more details about HIV and a list of which bodily fluids carry the infection to others and which are unlikely to, you will find lots of information on the following site:
