Lots of people worry about taking an HIV test, but it’s the only way to know your status.
It’s ok to be anxious, but getting tested is probably easier than you think. It’s quick, confidential and usually free. Here people share their experiences of testing for HIV.
Remember, if you’re positive you can take treatment to keep you healthy, and if you’re negative, knowing your status means you can stop worrying and move on.
If you have your own story to tell, you can share it with us here. We'll keep it anonymous and it could help someone thinking of going for a test.
