Hey hannah, im only 16 and i got tested and i was negative, im not going to lie it was the biggest desicion i have ever made and i was so scared but i think its up to you, you have to wait until you feel ready, pros and cons well yes you can go over and over these in your head for years but the big question to ask yourself is are you ready to find out? or do you want to live life as normal as you can until you start to supect anything?
you could live normally, but for me the voice at the back of my head that said yes no yes no yes no got to loud to ignore i had to answer it, the thing you need to think of is can you ignore it or is this scratch to big not to itch.
