Individual Risk Assessment

The following questionnaire is for you to use in determining whether or not you are at risk of being infected with HIV in order to help you decide whether or not you would like to get tested.

HIV transmission occurs when a person is exposed to body fluids infected with the virus, such as blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk. The primary modes of HIV transmission are (1) sexual relations with an infected person (2) sharing hypodermic needles or (3) accidental pricking by a needle contaminated with infected blood.

To determine if you are at Risk, please answer the following questions:

Have you ever had unprotected (without a condom) vaginal sex?

Have you ever had unprotected anal sex?

Have you ever had unprotected oral sex?

Have you ever injected drugs?

Have you injected drugs in the past year?

Have you ever shared your needles, syringes or works?

Have you ever snorted cocaine?

Have you ever used crack cocaine?

Have you ever had sex with an IV drug user?

Have you ever had sex with someone with syphilis, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, or herpes?

Have you ever had a sexually transmitted infection?

Have you ever traded sex for money, drugs, or alcohol?

Have you had sex with someone of the same sex as you?

Have you ever had group sex?

Have you ever been forced to have sex against your will?

Have you ever had sex with a prostitute?

Have you ever had a tattoo or body piercing?

How many sex partners have you had in the past 12 months?

When you have sex:
