So I've been dating (and having sex with) the same guy for seven/eight months now. The sex, though, is unprotected, so I may or may not be at risk for HIV. I plan to get tested for it, though, and I did ask him if he got tested. He said he did and that he tested negative. So, should I even worry? He's been having sex longer than I have been, so the symptoms would have shown up by now. Also, I had blood work done in November of last year, we have been sexually active since May/June. If anything suspect was there, then my doctor would have said something. To be safe though, I got tested this afternoon, and also did a urine test for chlamydia/gonorrhea, and a blood test for Hepatitis C and B. I should have the results of those tests back within two to three days. On a side note, my third HPV shot is due in May. I am glad I got tested today, but then again I'm pretty nervous about what the results are going to be.
I agree, I will get tested for that and maybe have my boyfriend come get tested with me as well. I am not sure that he would be willing to, though. Right now I'm just stressing out over the HIV test, as I have no idea what the results are going to be. I do feel bad that I might have screwed up, I am going to admit.View Thread
I did not have the HSV 1 and 2 test, I was not even informed that there was such a thing. Though, had I been told previously, I would have taken that as well. I should also note that I took hepatitis tests back in November, the same time I had the pap done. The results of those tests came back negative, so I am hoping that I will test negative this time around for the same tests.View Thread
He says he's tested several times in the past, including the beginning of this year...but I don't really know what to believe so I figured I should get tested. Also, I had a pap done late last year and nothing abnormal was detected.View Thread
