I have a friend who had a one night stand (unprotected). She has had 5 diff sex partners in her life and shes 21. This is her first time ever having unprotected sex.. The man she had sex with is in the millitary and supposed to be tested regular.. Shes worried she might have a horrible STD or HIV even.. I reassured her that was probably not the case.. shes going to be tested in 3 months.. I dont really know how to make her understand that Im sure shes just fine..

Well, she should be tested because nothing is 100%.

I don't recall my husband ever being tested in the military...



If anything, hopefully this scares her straight. Nothing wrong with one night stands but she should protect herself.

Do you have to wait 3 months to test for HIV? Why doesn't she get tested for other STD's before then?

She's being smart. If I had unprotected sex with someone I wasn't in a committed relationship with, I'd get tested too.

My SO was in the military and was never tested for HIV. In any case, better safe than sorry.

She should go get tested now. Everyone should be tested regularly if they have sex with anyone, protected or unprotected, no matter how many partners. (Excluding relationships obviously)

They do an HIV test if your in the military but i think it's like in BMT or right before you go to boot camp plus you never know who's he's been with so like someone else said better to be safe than sorry although i think she'll probably be fine.

:!: OP... as her friend, you should encourage her to be tested. Don't reassure her that she's just fine... one time is all it takes.

I think she is being smart by wanting to be tested. They are tested in the military but not very often. My husband got tested before basic and then before he deployed.
