Who should be tested?

All adults and adolescents (ages 13 – 64) should be tested for HIV at least once in their life. How often someone should be tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) depends on risk factors including the number of partners, type of sexual activity or drug use. To determine if you are at risk for HIV/STDs, a counselor may ask questions regarding sex, lifestyle and drug use during your visit.
Generally, most people benefit from an STD screening at least once a year. It is important to know that not all doctors provide regular testing for HIV/STDs, so check with your doctor or medical provider after each visit.

If you or a partner have tested positive for an STD, every partner should be tested and treated to avoid re-infection.

How often should I be tested?

Every 3-6 months:
Anyone who has multiple or anonymous partners
Anyone who shares injection drug needles or equipment
All sexually active men who have sex with men and transgender individuals

Every year:
All sexually active persons over the age of 13
