Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in. Using a condom is the best way to protect yourself against HIV and most STD's. It sounds like you did a great job of protecting yourself in this situation.

I do not think you need to test for HIV in this particular situation. However, now that you are sexually active you should be testing for all STD's including HIV at LEAST once a year, and preferably every six months.

Keep up the condom use and you'll be good to go.

In health,

Richard
