Testing is Safe, Easy and Confidential!

Getting tested is the only way to find out if you have HIV. HIV tests are quick, painless, and results can be ready in 20 minutes. On Thursday, June 27, you can get the test done for free.

Testing is a good idea if you’ve had unprotected sex or if your partner tests positive for HIV. You should also get tested if you’ve shared needles with anybody. If you’re pregnant, it’s important to get tested for HIV to minimize the risk of passing HIV to your baby with early detection and treatment.

Finding out you have HIV can be upsetting.

You might feel mad, embarrassed, scared, or ashamed at first. But with treatment and support, people with HIV can live long, healthy, fulfilling lives.

There are medicines you can take to help you stay healthy, and lots of ways to avoid giving HIV to anyone you have sex with. The reality is, people with HIV can be in relationships, have sex, and live normal lives by taking a few precautions. 


Many people who have HIV are in long-term relationships with people who don’t have HIV. Planned Parenthood can help you and your partner work through the best ways to protect yourself – starting with taking an antiretroviral medication called PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis.) It can lessen the risk of spreading the virus through sex by up to 99%.

If you’ve had sex with a partner who has HIV within the last 72 hours (about three days), you can start a treatment called PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis.) The sooner you start it, the better: PEP is only for emergencies and should not be used in place of a condom and PrEP. 


In addition to taking PrEP, using condoms REALLY lowers your risk of getting HIV. If you’re going to have sex, using condoms every single time is the best way to protect yourself from HIV.

Some sexual activities are also safer than others when it comes to getting HIV. For the full list of which activities are “no risk” or “lower risk,” click the button below.
