he says he used protection every time he had sex but......
Many thanks

I agree with Austin...get tested ASAP and have your husband tested also. In addition, if you are going to continue in your relationship, insist that he use a condom when having sex with you.

I would also like to add that y'all may want to seek the services of a marriage counselor. (((hug))) best wishes for you.

To add to this. You will have a conclusive HIV test after 3 months from your last unprotected intercourse with your husband.

I disagree with Marcus...if the husband keeps having sex with a prostitute, condom or no the OP will never be 100% safe having sex with him. Using a condom HELPS but it isn't 100% protection from STDs (think of it this way, condoms fail to prevent pregnancy about 16% of the time...if sperm can get through, HIV and other STds can too). A condom is better than nothing but only abstinence is 100% effective.

If the husband stops (and how is the OP ever really going to know?) THEN she can get a conclusive HIV test...but as long as the husband engages in such high risk behavior, they are both at risk, even with the use of condoms.
