Why are you having unprotected sex with your husband?! Are you trying to catch HIV??

You need to test 3 months after your last unprotected sex to rule out HIV. So you if you have been having protected sex consistently for the last 6 months you can test now for a conclusive result.

HIV is not efficiently transmitted, so sometimes a person can go without catching HIV after months or years of unprotected sex with an infected partner.

Please use condoms consistently for now on.
