    Daily AIDS pill helps gay men avoid infection - Health - Men's health - msnbc.com

    Scientists have an exciting breakthrough in the fight against AIDS. A pill already used to treat HIV infection turns out to be a powerful weapon in protecting healthy gay men from catching the virus, a global study found.

    Daily doses of Truvada cut the risk of infection by 44 percent when given with condoms, counseling and other prevention services. Men who took their pills most faithfully had even more protection, up to 73 percent.

    Hold on here just one damn moment!!

    That pill taken "faithfully" WITH a condom gives you a 27% chance of passing AIDS onto your partner.

    Just how bad are condoms alone at preventing it? B/c any lib I've talked to has told me they prevent it, as if it's 100%

    And people called Bush a moron for supporting abstinance.

    Not engaging in risky behavior is a good preventive measure.

    But then, that's not nearly as much fun, is it?

    Actions have consequences, folks.

    The only 100% HIV protection technique for homos is for them to just 'sit down and keep their mouth shut'. .. :eusa_angel:

    Russian Roulette might be just as much fun. I hear people actually get a bang out of it! And guess what else? Neither will produce a baby!
