How do I prove to my partner that I am HIV negative?
You and your partner have several options when it comes to disclosing HIV status with each other. You can share a copy of your tests result with your partner if you choose. You will need to bring a photo ID with you at the time of your test so that you can get your results in writing. You may also choose to bring your partner with you for a joint counseling session with one of our HIV counselors after your testing session is over and you receive your results. Your counselor is not allowed to disclose your results to your partner but is available to answer questions you or your partner might have. If your partner chooses to get tested also, he or she may do so in a separate private session. We will never test two people together nor will we test somebody with a friend or family in the room. This is so that you have complete privacy and confidentiality.
