    Just get tested every six months if you plan on, or a regular practitioner of unsafe sex. Since Six months is the final window period after the initial 90 day period.

    Condoms are not 100 percent although they can be effective in preventing the spread of HIV if used properly

    Although you may not consider oral sex a high risk activity, it is still use a dental dam or condom when performing oral sex

    Always get your sexual partners tested before you begin to have sex with them, and always wear a condom because in the end only your can know your HIV status.

    Other than that choose wisely, and minimize your risk factors

    Regular testing every six months is a good idea even if you are not having unprotected sex.

    Condoms are 100% effective if they do not break. Using a latex condom with plenty of non-oil based lubricant and smoothing out any air bubbles will prevent them from breaking.
