    :dunno: I went to the Dr yesterday. I decided to run the full gammit of tests. It's been just over 3 years since I was tested for HIV and about 4 years since I had the rest of the tests done (they do them automatically through the Navy when you get preggers). But it got me thinking...

    How often are the rest of you being tested? Since I've just recently started sleeping with a new partner since my last round of tests, I felt it was a good time to do it again. Do you test after every partner? Every year? Every 6 months? Never?

    Well I get tested for the most of the STD's once a year at the gyno. Got tested for HIV a year and a half ago. Before that I was tested for the first time maybe 2 years before.

    I think it's irresponsible for those who are sexually active (with more than one person) to not get tested.

    I agree. Since I've got a new partner, I figured it was time. When this relationship ends, I'll get tested again, or in a year, whichever comes first :dunno:

    Once a year, regardless of if I have had a new partner or not. Shit happens sometimes, even when in a relationship.

    I used to get tested yearly. Now that I'm in the current relationship, I'm getting a little more lax on that.

    How much would a full gamut of testing cost without insurance?

    $185-400

    There are also free clinics, but the one I went to I had to wait 4 hours (I was last in line).

    If you don't have insurance, you may qualify for free testing at planned parenthood.
