Wondering my Risk, Obviously One but...

I am a 29 f.
Last time I was tested was 9 yrs ago. During this time frame I have had a lot of unprotected sex orally and vaginally. With at least 15-20 different partners.
I know, It is the stupidest I have ever been and now am worried. Lat encounter was 46 days ago. When Can I get tested and what tests are the best. I have been to the doctor for testing and she said i needed to wait. I do have hpv1 and hpv2. I have had this for over 15 yrs. Recently outbreaks have been severe. which is why i went to the doctor in the first place. Nausea is overwhelming, headaches are severe. I get exhausted just doing basic tasks that I never had a problem doing before. It also feels as if theres something stuck in my throat and it is very tender on one side. I guess what I am asking is statistically what are my odds of being infected and when should be the best time to test.
Thanks in advance, and believe me I know I was stupid.

Re: Wondering my Risk, Obviously One but...

hiya at 6 weeks which is now, you can take any hiv test and have a very good indication of your hiv status. A simple rapid test would be fine. At the same time you should test for all stds.

A 3 months hiv test is required for conclusive results. Hope that helps.

Thats an impossible question to answer. The only way to know is take a test.
