Any risky sex: would be a good reason to be checked for HIV. You may need to specifically request an STD workup. Take care.

Possible: If you had unprotected sex , get it checked by blood test and take precautions in future .

What is the question: If you want to know if you have hiv, get the blood test. I recommend it. This test is not done unless specifically requested. Can you catch hiv by getting a blood test? NO.
