Talk Testing Together

Original Article by the CDC and selected for feature by Saszy DelaCruz.


Talk to your partners and friends about knowing your status and getting tested. Knowing your HIV status helps you choose options to stay healthy. HIV testing is free, fast, and confidential. The only way to know for sure whether you have HIV is to get tested.

CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. A general rule for those with risk factors is to get tested annually. Sexually active gay and bisexual men may benefit from more frequent testing (for example, every 3 to 6 months).

Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help you take steps to keep you and your partner healthy.

There are more HIV prevention options than ever before. Start talking about the options that work for you.
