7 mm is not normal result ,u must do it again and if same result is there then u should go for other test
less then 5 mm is negative and more then 10mm is reactive

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You have done Mantoux test for TB. This test is not positive. You can have sex. No problem. Use condom to prevent STDs.
