Risk Factors for HIV
The risk factors for Human Immunodeficiency Virus include intravenous drug use and co infection with syphilis. Reports also suggest that unprotected sexual activity is a very big risk factor for HIV. Likewise, having a regular sexual partner who is also a drug user can be another major risk factor for HIV. There are other theoretical risks associated with HIV like sharing of tooth brushes or shaving razors. In fact these items can actually cause bleeding which may contain the HIV virus in high quantities. Ensure that there is no sexual contact or direct exposure to blood if you want to avoid the risk of HIV.
