Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Sebastian from Cologne, Germany,

If you had protected sex and the latex condom did not fail, no further testing is required and you can WOO-HOO with confidence. However, if you had unprotected sex with an HIV-positive person, you'll need an additional test at the six-month mark to confirm definitively your HIV-negative status.

Good luck! Remember to always use latex condoms for penetrative sex to avoid worries like this in the future, OK?

Dr. Bob
