HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

different strains?


Hi folks

Just a question about strains- I know a bit about HIV 1 AND 2- Do most places in Britain test for both of these and the subtypes- Is there a chance some people test negative but have a different strain- There is way too much info out there!

The reason I ask is mainly because an ex boyfriend lived in Africa for a year- and I think he was having unprotected sex- He was one of the ones I broke a condom with. Im pretty sure I am not infected but when I read about different strains in the news I wondered a bit

thank you in advance
