Response from Ms. Southall

Hi 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. You need to practice safe sex and ensure that the condom is being used correctly. HIV transmission increases when you have multiple partners. Not just HIV but all of the other sexually transmitted infections. I recommend that you see your health care provider for a complete STI screening which should include an HIV test.

Be well and get tested! Shannon
