If you have engaged in high-risk sexual activity, it is important to be re-tested every three months.

A positive HIV test result indicates that antibodies to HIV or HIV antigens were detected.

Even if you look and feel healthy, you could still be infected.

You may be at risk if you have had unprotected sex or if the condom broke during sex, if you have multiple partners or have discovered your partner was not monogamous, if you have shared needles, if you recently tested positive for another sexually transmitted infection, or if you were sexually assaulted.

It does not mean that you have AIDS or that you will get sick right away.

And although there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, currently available drugs are highly effective at keeping the virus in check.

And in 2013, only 33% of adults aged 18–24 had ever received a test.

As a result, an estimated 51% of those under 25 living with HIV are unaware of their infection.

In addition, many states offer anonymous HIV testing.
