i tested neg. 6 months ago in the meantime i had sex with 2 men i used protection with one and the other one was a alcoholic should i be worried

Response from Dr. Aberg

I assume you didn't use protection with the alcoholic. The fact that he is an alcoholic has nothing to do with risk of transmission. Do you know these men? Have they been tested for HIV? If you have had unprotected sex with someone you do not know their HIV status (and other sexually transmitted diseases), you should get screening for both HIV and STD's such as gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis.
