HIV Transmission and Testing > Am I Infected?

Hemorrhoid Question

<< < (2/2)

Jeff G:
I would not recommend unprotected sex to any individual who is not in a mutually monogamous relationship period .

You didn't have a risk for HIV in the situation you describe but its ultimately up to you how comfortable you are with the risk of exposing your girlfriend to a host of other STD's . We deal with HIV assessments here so we only focus on that aspect but you asked and I provided my thoughts on the matter .

I will repeat this helpful information ... 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!
