A doctor who took to Twitter to stress the need for a medical test, disclosed that a Nigerian bride who came in for her test with her husband just found out she is HIV positive with just one week to their wedding. It was discovered that the bride-to-be was HIV positive. No doubt, discovering that a person is infected with the virus is not another way of saying his or her life has ended.
But in this particular situation, the bride-to-be’s ailing health condition was only discovered one week to her wedding with her sweetheart. Now, dealing with this news, and then, planning a wedding – that is if there is still a marriage ceremony to plan – can be very traumatic.
The doctor who revealed that the Nigerian bride just found out she is HIV positive with just one week to their wedding, added that the test left him in tears and he can’t stop crying. He wrote on Twitter;
”IDK who need to hear this, Please do your check up some months to your wedding and know your status and that of your partner not when it next week or next day to the wedding. Couples to be just came for it now, The bride is Hiv+! Just week to thier wedding. cant stop my tears”.
Knowing the shattering effect of this news, the doctor felt really sorry for them. Hence, while he took to sharing this story . He also advised couples to go for medical tests and check their results long before a wedding is even planned as knowing about any mishap just a week to a planning union is not very ideal
Many people have reacted to this post in quite expected ways. See some of the reactions below: “There is nothing to be sad about. If you allow love to concur.
HIV is no more the death sentence it use to be. With ARV the bride will have low viral load and won’t be able to even pass the virus to the husband and she won’t die not even in 50 years time. People need more education about HIV.” another user said,
nikky248: “Now the test of true love comes into play.
” ngwajanengweji: “Most people lack knowledge abt HIV if they could learn and stop living in 1980’s and open their minds to education.”
_.rubie__: “They can still get married tho.
” uzoukwucynthia: “They can go ahead with d wedding if they want to. Treatment is free and available.”
