B-Wise Expert Expert 21 July 2020 17:59


STIs are caused when you have unprotected sex with someone who has the infection. It then passes onto you.

There are many symptoms for different STIs such as bad smelling discharge, discharge changing colour, sores on vagina or penis

Can I give my child breast milk and formula after 6mnts if I'm HIV positive?

B-Wise Expert Expert 2 July 2020 09:48


It is safe to breastfeed the baby for up to two years, as long as your viral load is undetectable and its safe to do so.

ou may continue to breastfeed while the baby eats food because now the stomach gut of your baby is well formed and strong enough to withstand the virus.

Also important to note that you should continue to take your treatment always and avoid breastfeeding if you have sores in your breast

B-Wise User Nobukhosindebele98@gmail.com 1 July 2020 13:45

Hie Doc my viral load is undectable and my baby is 6mnts old now I still want to breastfeed him and giving solid food is it safe for my child?

B-Wise Expert Expert 1 July 2020 17:02

Hi there,

It is best to take the baby to the clinic to make sure he/she can handle both breastmilk and solid foods. The doctor will be able to then give you advice based on the baby's and your health

Your partner needs to get tested. It's very important. In the meantime, please use condoms when having sex.

Giving birth is a traumatic event to the body, continue drinking your medication check your viral load after 3 months, if you are still worried, consult your doctor, you may need to switch to another drug.

What do you do if you get raped??

B-Wise Expert Expert 27 May 2020 16:04

Hi There, 

  • You need to get medical help as soon as you can. If possible, you should go to the hospital, medico-legal clinic or Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) within 72 hours (3 days) of the rape.
  • You will be provided with medication if necessary, to help to prevent you from being infected with HIV. This medication is called PEP, which stands for 'post-exposure prophylaxis'. You will have to take these pills every day for 28 days.
  • You will be given medication to prevent you from falling pregnant. Both of these medicines are free in public hospitals and clinics.
  • The doctor or nurse will also ask you questions about what happened. Try to be as honest as you can. It's okay if you don't remember. They will do some tests to get evidence for the police find your rapist but this does not mean you have to open a case at the police station.
  • Do not shower or wash after the rape and take any clothes you were wearing so they can find evidence they need.

Remember, you do not need to open a case to get medical care after a rape.

B-Wise Expert Expert 30 March 2020 12:19

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?

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 March 2020 12:04


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 

B-Wise User Anonymous 14 March 2020 21:22

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

B-Wise Expert Expert 7 April 2020 13:11

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.
