Hi Hlengiwe, 

It s possible that your partner has not been infected with the virus, continues having sex with condoms and also your partner needs to take prep to prevent getting infected. Learn more about Prep on www.myprep.co.za

My mam takes ARVS but she does not want to take them every day what can I do?

Your mum needs to take her pills everyday, You can set reminders for her so she doesn't forget, for example you can put them next to her toothbrush so everytime she brushes her teeth she takes them, or set a time when you know you are home to remind her, good luck

Hi I have been on ART for 3 years, a year ago my viral load increased and it hasn't been suppressed since but its increasing slowly even though I take my treatment religiously on time. To cut matters short the cause of this was found and now I'm about to change my first line regimen to the second one. My question is will I change to this new TLD treatment or the one that was there before? Is this pill also taken once a day at the same time everyday? Thanks

Hi there,

In SA now TLD is our first regimen not second regimen.


You will need to be properly assessed and the healthcare worker will choose a personalized regimen choice for you, it is not general. The regimen depends on which drugs were you exposed to and your clinical picture.

So your health care worker will explain the times for the treatment with you.
