Should you get tested?

Yes. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Veterans Health Administration recommend that all adults should be tested for HIV infection regardless of whether they are at high risk for infection with HIV.

In the past, doctors and other health care providers usually only tested for HIV if patients had symptoms that might indicate an immune deficiency or if there was something in the their medical history that suggested they might be at increased risk for the virus.
