U=U Benefits


When taken as prescribed, antiretrovirals (HIV medication) may reduce your anxiety about HIV and help you enjoy sex more or feel more comfortable creating sexual relationships. Many people have less sex or even stop having sex after their diagnosis, but knowing they can’t transmit helps them feel better.

Antiretrovirals also require that you complete routine HIV screenings and follow-up visits, so you will always know your viral load level and be connected to a health care provider. By being on antiretrovirals, you’re helping your community fight the HIV epidemic, and you could be a resource for someone else that may want to use antiretrovirals for U=U.
