hiv carrier

Sep 28, 2013

I just recently found out that my ex is a carrier of has been 3 going on 4 years since ive had unprotected sex with last hiv test 2 years ago tested negative but I didm contract another std from him that was found in my blood.I will be going to get tested again because the fear is so not a promiscuous women this was a relationship.its so sad how life isnt valued anymore.

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

It sounds like you've already been tested in the right window to know if you contracted HIV from your ex.

We say to get tested 3 months after your last possible exposure. If you last had unprotected sex with him about 3 years ago, then you should've gotten a test 2 years and 9 months ago. You got a test after that (2 year ago) so you should be VERy confident in the result!

Hope this helps,
