Today is National HIV Testing Day and if you’re sexually active, there is no better time to know your status and take control of your health. There are tons of testing sites that provide free, confidential testing and you can get your results in as little as 60 seconds.

Don’t think HIV affects you? Think again—in the United States alone, more than 1 million people are currently living with HIV and that number is growing every day. People between the ages of 13 and 24 made up about 26% of new HIV infections in 2010, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Many people don’t know if they are infected with HIV, which means they could unknowingly pass the virus on to other people. This is why it’s so important to take control.
