Hello, I want to ask. A month ago I was doing risky activities with my girlfriend and that was my first experience, then last month she also took an HIV test because a year ago she was doing risky activities with other people and the results were negative / non-reactive. The question is whether the negative / non-reactive examination results are safe? Considering he did something risky a year ago and this is my first time doing the activity. I’m quite confused actually and somewhat parno because of this, thank you doctor

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

If it is true that your boyfriend last had sexual relations (before with you) a year ago and an HIV test was conducted a month ago (meaning it has been more than 3 months since the last sexual intercourse was carried out), then the results of your girlfriend's examination can be said to be accurate. However, if you have doubts about the information your boyfriend has provided, you are also advised to carry out an HIV test yourself. Depending on what tests you want to use, if you use a fourth generation HIV test (which detects HIV antibodies and also P24 antigens), then you can already do the examination approximately 4 weeks after sexual intercourse. Consult a doctor in advance to carry out this HIV examination.


If indeed you are afraid of suffering from HIV due to unsafe sexual intercourse, you should not engage in unprotected sexual intercourse again. Unsafe sexual relations not only risk causing HIV, but also risk of causing an unexpected pregnancy, as well as the risk of transmitting other diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, herpes, HPV, hepatitis B, and so forth. If indeed you do not want to avoid sexual intercourse, at least use a condom for your own safety. Although it cannot 100% protect you from pregnancy and various sexually transmitted diseases, at least the risk can be reduced.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
