FAQ


Are You at Risk for AIDS and Other Sexually Transmitted Infections?


This checklist is private. Be honest with yourself - check every item that is true for YOU. It will help you decide whether your behaviour puts you at risk.

1. I have never had vaginal, oral or anal intercourse, but show affection in other ways.
2. I don't have a sex partner at this time in my life. I've always used protection in the past.
3. My partner and I have never had sex with anyone else.
4. I have had the same partner for the past 20 years or more and NEITHER of us has had sex with anyone else during that time.
5. I (and my partner) have never shared needles/equipment for drug/steroid use, tattooing or piercing.

If you checked 1, 2, 3, or 4 and you have also checked 5, you are at almost NO risk for acquiring HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B or other sexually transmitted infections.

6. My partner and I use a condom/barrier every time we have vaginal intercourse.
7. My partner and I use a condom/barrier every time we have oral or anal intercourse.
8. My partner and I have both been tested for HIV (AIDS) and both tested negative; neither of us shares needles/equipment or drugs; neither of us has any other sex partners.

If you checked 6 or 7 you are at low risk for all STIs, including HIV/AIDS. If you checked 8 you may be at risk for other sexually transmitted infections, including Hepatitis B.

9. I have vaginal intercourse without using a condom.
10. I have oral/anal intercourse without using a condom or latex barrier.
11. I (or my partner) have had or currently have a sexually transmitted infection such as gonorrhea or chlamydia.
12. I don't know my partner's sexual history.
13. I know my partner has had unprotected sex with other people.
14. I have had sex with a man who has had sex with another man.
15. I don't know my partner's history of drug use/needle/equipment sharing.
16. I share needles/equipment for drug/steroid use, tattooing or piercing.
17. I had a blood transfusion before 1985 or had sex with someone who had a transfusion before that time.

If you checked 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, or 15, you are at risk for infection with HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and other sexually transmitted infections. If you checked 15, 16, or 17, you are at risk for HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B.
