Dear Dr. Bob,
You are amazing! My question is this. I had an exposure. The guy i was dating had "put it in" for a few seconds without a condom. I had gotten tested 5 months later and came back positive for an std that was cureable. My hiv came back negative. My question is do i have to get tested again since it wasnt six months it was only five?
Thank you for your help dr bob!!!!

I would consider your five-month test to be definitive and conclusive. Your story demonstrates the fact that many STDs are much more easily contracted than HIV (thankfully!).
Stay safe and you'll stay well.
