Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Any time you have unprotected sex you put yourself at risk for all of the sexually transmitted infections, which does include HIV. Getting tested is the best option to know your status. I would recommend that you follow up with your health care provider for a complete STI screening which would include asking for an HIV test. Guidelines for HIV testing are at 90 days post exposure and as long as there are no other exposures during this time the results are conclusive.

Be well, Shannon
