How do I have my husband go for an HIV test?
I am a concerned wife. I got married about five months ago. I was in a serious relationship before that, but the man I went out with, had regular check-ups for HIV and he was always negative. Last year I had to have an op and they did an HIV test and I was negative. I got married in last year and now everytime I have intercourse with my husband, I notice that I have an infection. I am scared to go for an HIV test and even worse scared of asking my husband to go for one. He had many affairs before getting married to me. He says he always used condoms, and that if he gets HIV, it will be because of me. He says at work they have to do HIV tests every couple of months, but will he disclose the results to me if his is positive?

I think that you and your husband should discuss this with someone
