February 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #72: Getting Tested

Tip of the Week

Gay men and lesbians who are sexually active and in a non-committed relationship should be tested for HIV on a regular basis. How often? Generally, seeing your doctor or going to a clinic such as Planned Parenthood for HIV screening once a year is a good rule to follow. Testing as well as receiving test results is completely anonymous, so there's no fear of being "outed" or feeling that your medical concerns will be come public knowledge. Also, keep in mind that in order to get a true test result, you'll have to wait three months after possible HIV exposure before you get tested.
