I have recently gotten into a new relationship at university. I have been checked before for STD's but never for HIV. I like to get checked whenever starting a new sexual relationship. My new partner has been checked and he has assured me that he has nothing. However, we want to stop using condoms as I am on the combined pill. I am going to get checked out again but I was wondering if I absolutely had to get bloods taken for a HIV test as I have a severe phobia of needles and syringes. Can I just be tested for everything except HIV or will the clinic make me get tested for everything?
