Testing Info

The more fucks you have, the more tests you need…

As men who like to fuck and get fucked often, we also like to get tested often – at least, four times a year.

Many guys assume they’re HIV negative based on their last test, but as tests take a while to show positive after someone’s contracted HIV, a recent negative test only means they were definitely HIV negative three months before. If you have fucked raw since your last test, or if you fuck often, testing for HIV and STIs regularly is crucial to maintaining your health.

Piss in a cup, put a swab in your throat, another up your arse, and get a bit of blood taken is all you need to do.

Poz Guys and Testing

For Poz guys, testing is part of the routine. It’s usually done about 3-4 times a year to check up on viral load and CD4 count.

STIs can be harmful to your health if left untreated and some can spike your viral load which can increase the risk of passing on HIV.

If you are fucking with multiple partners, make sure you throw a sexual health screen in with your usual blood tests. You might need to request a full screening – Hep C is left off some standard STI tests and should be done at least once a year.
