If you are/were pregnant, do you HIV test?

No... I wouldn't need one since my husband and I were both virgins until we got married and we trust that neither has broken our vows, so there'd be no point.

They can't take a chance at having unnecessary malpractice suits.

If I was a doc and a patient told me they're a virgin and so was their husband and he's not human so he doesn't even know what cheating is, I would STILL want a test for my own security. To each his own though. They say ignorance is bliss.

Plus, it shouldn't be the burden of the healthcare professional to figure out who's telling the truth, who's lying and who's delusional. By giving every woman the test, all the guesswork is eliminated.
Well,my youngest is 13,so I missed the mandatory test.
Wouldn't have bothered me,as long as insurance paid for it.
