Survey weighting is starting to confuse the hell out of me, and unnecessarily I think!

I have merged the HIV Test Results Recode and Couples Recode for the 2014 Lesotho Data. Before I start to do any descriptive or regression analyses, I know that I need to use survey weights. How exactly is it that I do this on Stata?

I have looked through previous forums and tried to use the DHS user manuals and can't seem to work out the answer. I have uploaded my method for merging as written in the do.file if this is of help.

Many thanks,
