Answer

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that all females aged 13-64 years be tested for HIV at least once during their lifetime. [91, 92] Retesting annually or more often is recommended for those at high risk because of injection drug use, sex with an injection drug user, sex for money or drugs, sex since their most recent HIV test with men who have sex with men, or sex since their most recent HIV test with more than 1 person.
