The question?: If your boyfriend has HIV , you need to take the proper precaution. He will also need to be under the care of someone who takes care of HIV and you need to be tested for STDs as well. Don't delay.

Vimovo is not HIV medicine. It is anti inflammatory / pain killer. Please confirm before you take any drastic actions or split up. He might have HIV , but just bcz he was prescribed vimovo , does not mean he has HIV
