|Should I test again ?
Apr 19, 2013
Dear Ms. Southall, Over the last several months I've had 4 partners with whom I've had protected vaginal sex (condoms remained intact) & unprotected oral . My last hiv test was in December. Does my behavior warrant additional testing at this time ? Or am I just feeling guilt from being "slut shamed" on campus Thank you !

Hi We know that condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. Your testing shows you are HIV free.
Do not label yourself or allow others to label you. You are protecting yourself which is so important.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
