Why should I get tested?
Finding out your HIV test results lets you know if you need to get treatment. Also, counseling and testing can be a good way to educate yourself about HIV and your own risk. Counseling involves talking with a trained counselor before and after taking the HIV test. You can ask questions about HIV, talk about your risk of getting HIV, and raise any concerns or fears about testing you may have.
