Do most people with HIV have other stds

Dec 20, 2011

Just curious cause I had unprotected vaginal sex with a girl that I know for a year. I used to use protection with her for long time but not anymore. I have been tested for stds after having sex with her and they were all negative. Does that mean there's a good chance that she is HIV negative? I will get an HIV test to make sure. I'm scared but I trust her and then again I don't trust her. She isn't my girlfriend but a friend with benefits.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Having an STD can make an HIV infection more likely for the person with the STD. The only way to tell is to take an HIV test at the 90 day window.

In health, Richard
