Interesting - I wonder if every state requires this.

Yeah I've never heard of a law required HIV test.  In fact, I've read places that suggest if your dr doesn't offer HIV testing that you ask for it if you've had multiple partners. 

 

Tomorrow is the big day.  We did a hospital tour tonight and the nurse sd the dr was cool.  How cool idk... In addition to not wanting the pap or breast exam I also don't think I want the bimanual exam so I'm not exactly sure what's the point in going!  There can't be much left.
