HIV test: The test from 5 months ago told you that you had not gotten HIV infection prior to that test. What’s happened since then? Do you have a new partner? Have you and your partner been consistently using protection? Does your partner have any other partners? Are you planning a relationship with someone new? CDC recommends yearly screening testing. But if there is reason to be concerned, test now.
