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.Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help you take steps to keep you and your partner healthy.
Regular testing helps to monitor potential infections and their status even though they may not exhibit symptoms currently.
The recommended tests are: • Urine testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea if you get sucked.
The more stressed our body is, the more susceptible we will be to infections.
Tina creates a context that stresses our immune systems. The demands on our immune system increase the more partners we have sex with.
The most common symptoms of STIs include itching, burning, or discharge from the dick and/or ass.
We can get some STIs, such as gonorrhea, in our throats if we give head.
Rimming and barebacking can expose you to fecal matter and put you at risk for HCA transmission.
The Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is easily transmitted through barebacking.
HCA and HCB vaccines are recommend for anyone who is HIV and for all guys who play with multiple partners.
The Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is transmitted primarily through sex and contact with infected blood especially sharing needles. TIP: If you bareback please check out our ‘Risk reduction tips for barebackers’ article here.
After you get tested, it’s important for you to find out the result of your test so that you can talk to your health care provider about treatment options if you’re HIV-positive.
