Hi there...I can understand your concern. Yes you can go for a hiv 1 and 2 testing now. But it is better to repeat the test after 3 months, because sometimes you can be in a window period. In window period, the antibodies might not be produced, so the test can be negative. Try to avoid any risky sexual practices, because sometimes the condom can break or slip and expose you to infection.
