How often should I get tested for HIV? 
If you identify as a man (or have a penis) and have sex with other men (or people with a penis), we recommend getting tested for HIV regularly: 

  • We recommend to get tested at least once a year 
  • If you have several male sex partners and don´t always use a condom, we recommend to get tested every 3rd month 
  • If you have a stable sex-partner and/or you always use a condom, we recommend to get tested for HIV once a year

If you would like to avoid meeting other clients in our waiting area, you are welcome to book a test outside our regular opening hours. (Checkpoint Copenhagen and Aarhus only)

If you have a stable sex-partner who is living with HIV, is on treatment and have an undetectable viral load you cannot be infected with HIV, but it can still be a good idea to get tested for other sexually transmitted infections. 
 
As such it is safer to have sex with people who are living with HIV, on treatment and have an undetectable viral load, than with people who don’t know their HIV status.  
 
Unsure about how often you should get tested? Give us a call!
