For Men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) it is very important to get regular testing and necessary treatment due to high risks for certain conditions such as STDs and HIV.

Regular testing needn’t be something to fear, in fact it can be hugely beneficial. If everything is all clear then there is nothing to worry about at this stage. If anything turns out as positive then it can be tended to early which will have better long term outcomes.

HIV

HIV is at the forefront of most people and rightly so, although not for the reason you may think. Most associate HIV with a death sentence, which is not true nowadays. The reason HIV should be tested is because the earlier it is picked up the better the long term outcomes. If an HIV positive person sticks to the treatment regime they can have 40-50 years of good quality life and that is very important.

HIV testing is important for all sexually active patients but for MSM it is especially important. The reason is that this group fall into the highest risk for HIV in a sexual context. For unprotected anal sexual intercourse the risk for the receiver is 1:70. You can see this is very high further emphasising the importance of testing.
