do I need a HIV test?

Jan 1, 2007

Hello Dr. Wohl,

I want to make it fast. I am married since 5 years now and before I met my husband I had sex and my bf didn't use condom. I went to my doctor 2 weeks ago because I got very low blood pressure and he took some blood to check if everything is fine with me. I have also Gastritis since I was 15 ( I am 31) and last Friday my doctor told me that everything is okay with me. He saids I am very halthy and he also check everything with his ultrasonografie. Do I need a hiv test. Sorry about my bad english , i am from germany. Thank you for taking your time answering my question.

I will try to send the donation ASAP.

Thank you,


Response from Dr. Wohl

Dear Viska,

If you are in doubt about your HIV status then you should get tested. This is a general recommendation for all people who could have possibly been exposed to HIV. Knowing is better than the anxiety of uncertainty.

As far as any donations, I would encourage everyone to give to the AIDS organization of their choice.


Thanks, and fungal question
