The H.I.V. treatment and choice of medicines is determined on the basis of the individual requirements of a person. Some of the most common factors taken into account by sexologist include other disease and health conditions that an individual suffering from HIV may have, probable side effects of HIV medicines, possible interactions between different HIV medicines as well as HIV and other medicines that the affected individual may be taking, the outcomes of drug resistance and HIV test. This drug resistance test helps in understanding which type of medicines would be more effective in treating HIV and which ones would not be. A sexologist would also consider the convenience of the HIV treatment which means that instead of having 2 pills with separate combinations, it becomes easier to have them combined into 1 pill. Then the costs of various HIV medications and any issues that may make it difficult to follow the standard HIV AIDS treatment are also considered by the doctor. When a person first visits a doctor for HIV checkup, the sexologist normally asks questions related to medical history, then conduct a HIV test and physical exam and advice to go through different kinds of medical tests including total blood count, kidney as well as liver function tests, tests about sexually transmitted disease and tests to check hepatitis and toxoplasmosis. The duration of this treatment varies from person to person and may take longer for individuals affected with HIV for over 6 months and can result in managing the condition.
