HIV Testing Reminders

Sexually active gay and bisexual men should regularly get an HIV test at least once a year.  Testing should be as frequent as every three months if you have multiple sex partners and don’t routinely have safe sex.

Remember, you can have HIV and not have any symptoms.   So getting into the habit of regular testing makes sense for most sexually-active gay men. Free, anonymous, and painless HIV testing is available at AIDS Project Rhode Island.

NOTE: If you have ever shared needles for any reason (i.e., drugs, steroids, hormones) and never had a HIV test, you should get tested for HIV now. You should also talk to your doctor about your current needle-sharing practices to learn how frequently you should get tested going forward. AIDS Care Ocean State operates a needle exchange program in Rhode and provides information on safe needle injection practices.
