A negative test result can be a relief or something expected. But a negative test result can also be overwhelming, for example, if you’ve been convinced that you have HIV. If your test result proves to be negative and you need to talk about it, turn to the clinic where you got tested. Remember that a negative test result is just a reflection of your current status. Safe sex is just as important in the future. Condoms protect against HIV, not a negative HIV test! Continue to enjoy sex but enjoy it safely!
