HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Do I need an HIV test?

(1/1)

DerakMustang:
I am a 25 year old guy. I slept in a same room but not a same bed with one of my male friends for several nights. From my observation, he is probably a gay or bisexual. I just assume that he's kinda likely to have HIV. But I didn't ask him.

He's a little bit weird during those days when I lived with him. Now, I am just worried about whether he did something to me when I was asleep, like injecting me with his blood. I am also very worried that he might use some anesthetics to numb my skin so I wouldn't feel the needle stick when he injected me. Is it possible?

Do I need an HIV test? Please help. Thank you.

You need to get some psychiatric help for you HIV phobias . Its beyond me why you would think somebody has HIV because of their sexual orientation , quite frankly its beyond offensive . I will spare you the lectures and get right to doing my job which is trying to prevent HIV infections . 

If you consistently and correctly use condoms for vaginal and anal sex you will avoid exposure to HIV . anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!
