What can I do to reduce my risk?
- If you are having sex, (oral, vaginal, or anal) use a condom. HIV is in semen, blood, vaginal, and anal fluids.
- Limit your number of sex partners and know their HIV/STI status.
- Don’t share needles when shooting drugs or anything that could be contaminated with a person’s blood, like their razor or toothbrush.
- GYT (Get Yourself Tested). CDHD offers
HIV testing Monday through Friday.
