HIV

Have been having a similar conversation on the sex pages but just want to know if anyone has ever had an HIV test? What do they actually do? And how long does it take? <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
