If you're sexually active, you need to be getting yourself checked regularly for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. How often you get checked depends on how much you're hooking up.
You should get tested every 3 months if you hook up a lot. Otherwise, every 6 months is probably good.
If you're having some symptoms (like burning when you piss) or a partner tells you that they just got diagnosed with an infection, you should get tested right away.
Remember, you can have an STD and not have any symptoms at all, so you (or your partners) can be infected and not even know it.
Having an STD makes it easier to get infected with HIV, so it’s important to get tested to protect your health and the health of your partner.
The CDC recommends that sexually active gay, bi and other men who have sex with men should get tested regularly for the following :
*Hepatitis B--test once, then get vaccinated if negative!
*Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the rectum if you’ve bottomed in the past year
*Chlamydia and Gonorrhea of the penis (urethra--piss hole) if you have topped or received a blow job in the past year
*Gonorrhea of the throat if you’ve given a blow job or rim job in the past year
There are cures for many STDs, and good treatments for the symptoms of those that can't be cured completely, so don't be afraid to get tested and get treated.
