Hi there ...

If someone is tested positive for HIV than it would be ideal for dr to beak this news to patient as early as possible because of the reason to decide about treatment , and to avoid delay in anti- viral treatment .

So better to tell right away .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
