CDC Guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that individuals aged 13-64 get tested at least once in their lifetimes and those with risk factors get tested more frequently. A general rule for those with risk factors is to get tested at least annually. Additionally, CDC has recently reported that gay and bisexual men may benefit from getting an HIV test more often, perhaps every 3-6 months.
