when to test
Jan 4, 2012
I have only had mutual masturbation and (some) oral sex. I have never had anal or vaginal intercourse. I realize the two are considered low-risk activities, but I'm thinking of having a rapid HIV test. As such, do you recommend that I wait a full three months, or can I get one at anytime, and anticipate that results will be conclusive? Please advise.
Response from Mr. Cordova
You could get a test at anytime, and consider that as of three months prior to the test, the results are conclusive. I would also recommend that you get tested on a semi-annual basis, as part of routine health screenings.
