HIV
I have been divorced for 11 years from a Gay man whom I did not know was Gay when I was married. He has just been diagnosed with HIV.His partner of 3 years just passed away from Aids. My question is  :Do I need to be tested ? Should I be concerned about possibly having HIV ? Is 11 years long enough to have no worry about this ? He claims 6 months ago he was tested and it showed negative , he was hospitalized a week ago and diagnosed with HIV . I have not been tested since our divorce .
I have just recently met someone I would like to have a relationship with .
Thank you,
Sadi

You definitely need to be tested.  Eleven years is not long enough to have no worry.

Hi Sadi here and I am happy to say I am HIV negative !!!  Thank you all for shocking me into getting tested . Guess I didnt want to believe I might be infected so I kept telling myself 11 years was long enough. I thank God almighty that I am not infected and I pray daily for those who are to have strength and courage and faith in God .
Thank you,
Sadi
