Why Get Tested

The only way to know your status and avoid the possible spread of HIV is to get tested.   If you think you may have been exposed – get tested.

People can become exposed to HIV if:

  • they or their partners have ever had unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex
  • they are the sex partner of a man who has sex with men
  • they are the sex partner of an intravenous (I.V.) drug user
  • they have sex for drugs, money or other gifts
  • they have shared unclean needles

Even if you don’t have symptoms, you can transmit the virus to others.  Protect yourself and prevent the spread of HIV to others, especially loved ones.  Get tested.
