Why HIV testing needs to be a part of everyone's sexual health, whatever sex you're having, whatever gender you are!
As a 20-something year old woman having casual sex in Sydney, I’ve noticed many of my friends aren’t having regular STI checks.
“Oh, you don’t need that.” This was the reply from my family GP when I asked for a HIV test for the first time. He was our family doctor.
My testing experience was not planned nor was my result expected. In 1988 I was unwell for a long period of time, I lost about three stone in weight, had night sweats and cold fevers.
