This is the best method i feel. It is better to get an HIV done so that we can prevent one partner getting from other partner. It is always better to get it checked before marriage.

Materialistically speaking one should get them done for every one's safety and I do not want to argue with anyone on this and I do not want to insist this on anyone too

I'm a 22 year old male about 165 lbs. I've recently had unprotected sex with my girlfriend although i'm not sure of her sexual history. On the top of my penis under the head I have a small patch that looks like a rash and when I pull it to look closer I see small cuts like paper cuts on it. A friend told me it may be from friction but I think I need to get tested. Can anyone help?
