What MMC Doesn't Do

Mmc Does Not Prevent Pregnancy

Circumcised men should still use a condom every time you have sex, keep to one, sexual partner and test for HIV to know your status so that you can make the best decision for your health.

Mmc Does Not Benefit The Partner Of An Hiv-Positive Man

If you are HIV-positive, you may also be circumcised, but this does not protect your partner from HIV. If you test positive for HIV, you should have your CD-4 cell count taken to determine the strength of your immune system, and you will be referred to care and support services. HIV-positive men who choose to be circumcised should continue to use condoms at all times to protect their partners from HIV and themselves and their partner from re-infection if both are HIV-positive.
