What's My Risk of Contracting HIV?
Have you had sex without using a condom?
If you don’t use a condom correctly, every time, you may be at risk and should get an HIV test.
Have you shared drug injection equipment with anyone? (Needles, syringes, cotton, cooker, water)
HIV lives in the blood. Sharing works is high-risk.
Does your partner have sex or share needles with anyone else?
What you don’t know can hurt you.
Have you had any other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or have any symptoms you are worried about?
You get HIV in the same way as other STDs.
If you have one STD, you could be at risk for others. If you do not know for sure the HIV status of your sex or needle-sharing partners, or do not know your own status, you could be at risk for giving or getting HIV. People who know their status can get life-saving medical care. And they can protect the people they care about.
You can get tested for HIV at any of the Comprehensive Care Clinics. To make a confidential appointment, call-toll free: 1-800-358-1144 ext. 4594.
