Understanding a Negative test Result

A negative test result means you don’t have HIV in your body. 

However due to the window period of HIV, a negative result doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have HIV. It is advised to test again after 3 months to be sure. 

Continue practicing safer sex options like using condoms, talking about safer sex options, testing, using prep, and reducing the number of sexual partners. 

It is also important to remember that your partner’s negative test result doesn’t mean you are also negative. Go get tested.
