Please see Dr.: You need to get checked for all STD's, not just HIV. In the future, to avoid the stress you're now facing, 100% condom use is important.

Get checked: A HIV blood test can be done by your MD and can be repeated 3 months after the initial test which will include a possible incubation period.
