HIV Testing after high risk exposure
Jul 1, 2011
On January 30,2011 I had anal sex with a guy where i was the giver to make long story short protection broke. found out he is HIV positive. I took a three month test it was negative now waiting for six months. Please help me should i test exactly six months or after to be clear. If that's negative do i repeat testing for this situation ???

The CDC recommends HIV-antibody tests at both the three- and six-month marks for significant HIV exposures. Broken-condom anal sex with a partner confirmed to be positively charged would qualify as a significant HIV exposure. You can test at six months or anytime after that for your conclusive result.
