Response from Dr. Feinberg

The indicators of HIV/AIDS are too numerous to recount here. However, you have had high-risk sexual activity over a long period of time and you (and your fiancee) should get tested ASAP. Don't put it off-- go tomorrow. If you're indeed HIV+, the sooner you know about it, the sooner you can do things to protect and improve your health (your fiancee, too). Do not have any more unprotected sex-- if you are lucky enough to be HIV-, that's the only way you can be sure of staying HIV-. Good luck!
