Healthy, Disease-Free and Immunized
I am healthy. I have a natural interest in medicine and the body, and as such have chosen to educate myself on issues such as sex, body contact, and diseases. I have one of the best, most highly respected doctors in the United States, and in addition to my frequent visits for STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) testing, he has become quite used to my phone calls seeking advice.
I am disease-free. I am HIV-negative, and get tested for all STIs, including HIV, every 4 months. I know a lot about health and safety; it is very important to me as I have no intention of complicating or jeopardizing my own life – or yours.
I am immunized for Hepatitis A and B, Meningitis, the HPV virus, and have had many vaccines recommended for international travel (i.e., Typhoid, Rabies, and Yellow Fever). Moreover, every winter I get a flu shot.
I take a daily dose of PReP. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a way for people who do not have HIV to prevent HIV infection – as long as it’s taken consistently, which I do.
