Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You had unprotected sex, hence you put yourself at risk. You need to receive testing, the guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you. Since you are well beyond the 3 month period and if there have been no other exposures getting a test now will let you know for sure if you are HIV positive or not.

Be well and get tested! Shannon

worried sick!!!
Just one last thing I'd like to ask
