unprotected sex

Jan 14, 2010

can iget tested for hiv next day after having unprotected sex?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Sure, you can get tested for HIV the day after having unsafe sex. However, the results won't tell you anything, so why bother? HIV-antibody tests taken prior to the three-month mark are not considered definitive or conclusive. I suggest you get HIV tested at three months!
