Tested for HIV 4th gen after3.4.5.6.7.8 months after unprotect sex with a poz gay who is not on med. I'm also negative for all std's, Need more tests?

New exposures may... That sounds like too much testing already! However, future exposures may lead to future testing. New sexual activities of a typical nature with a typical number of people who have a typical amount of risk can qualify one for getting screened for STD's once or twice a year, if having no symptoms.

I've grown impatient waiting for my STD/HIV test results to come in from my doctor's. Is it unhealthy to go get another test done that guarantees quick, same-appointment, results? I tested last Wed.

Be careful! "Unhelthy"? Maybe for your wallet; it could be expensive. Also, there are no accurate rapid tests for some STDs, and others may be less reliable than lab-based tests. You would be wise to just relax and wait for the results of the tests already in the works. Read more...

Had unprotective sex w ex-GF. In past year, she had unprotective sex w 2 other men. Says she's been tested for HIV/STD after each and is NEG. I got tested for STD and is OK. Should I be worried? Should I do PrEP? Last time I had sex w her on 1/24.

Low risk, no PrEP. The tests for STDs and HIV are very accurate, so you can be pretty sure your partner doesn't have any of the infections for which she was tested. And this sounds like a low risk situation for HIV, which remains less common ithan you might think among straight singles in the US. You don't need PrEP and most doctors wouldn't be willing to prescribe it in this situation. But get in the condom habit! Read more...
