Before hopping into bed with a new sex partner,
- Have an open and honest conversation about your sexual histories, risks, and the last time you were tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
- Knowing someone's test results isn't enough. "Even if your partner tested negative for HIV last week, it doesn't mean he or she isn't HIV positive
- Most HIV tests can only detect the virus starting three to six months after infection—so you should ask about your partner's sexual history for the past six months."
- What you need to find out. Of course, you probably won't get too far down the list if you just roll out the interrogation; but these are the questions you really do need answers to, one way or another.
Start by sharing your own history, and see what you get back.
1-Are you HIV positive?
2-Have you ever tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease? If so, were you treated?
3-How many sex partners have you had since your last STD and HIV tests?
4-Have you had any STDs in the past six months?
5-If you have been diagnosed with herpes or genital warts, are you having outbreaks? Are you being treated?
6-Have you been at risk for HIV in the past six months?
7-Do you have any objection to using a condom?
8-Are you allergic to latex?
9-Are you on any form of birth control?
10-Which sexual activities do you want to engage in?
