Hello Melky, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com

HIV testing can be done by various methods. The methods currently available are very accurate for checking the presence of HIV infection, but have differences in when they can detect HIV. The most recent examination can detect HIV approximately 3 weeks after risk behavior. But even the old method can detect HIV in 99.9% of people at 12 weeks after risk behavior. Therefore, examination conducted 1 year after risk behavior can be said to be very accurate. If the results are nonreactive, then you really don't have HIV. Examinations available at the puskesmas are also quite effective and the results can be trusted.

Henceforth, you should avoid doing risky behavior. Avoid having sexual relations between partners and not using condoms. Also make sure you do not use illegal drugs (especially injectable drugs) and use syringes together.
