Anyone who has had an hiv test..?

A: its just a blood test....but its not common to get it from a guy so dont freak until you know if you do or not.... For the record I have been knowingly hiv positive since July ‘05. Q:”What do they do, and how long does it take for the results to come in?” A: Go to a cdc (center for disease control) found in a health department for free anonymous testing.

hiv question*My bf is getting a hiv test(non-virgin)I am a virgin* and if he comes out positive is there any?

A: Yes. If, and that''s a big "if", your boyfriend has hiv, unprotected sex, vaginal ,oral or anal, exposes you to hiv. You''d need 12 condoms...lol. Why would children not be involved? There might be adoption as an option. I think it might be restricted to hiv+ children if it''s allowed at all. Condoms do a good job of protecting against hiv, and even if the condom breaks you have something like a 1% chance of getting hiv from an infected person each time you have unprotected sex. So if you''re careful, always use a condom (but never more than one) and are willing to take chances you can still have sex. him being hiv+ deff. doesnt...

Hope this helps - best wishes Ian...
