Answer: 

Hello and thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.
First, I would just like to make the distinction between HIV and AIDS. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus and this is the virus that, if left untreated long enough, will cause AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). 
Unprotected anal sex is a high risk activity for the passing of HIV, while protected sex (using a condom) is a low risk activity. I recommend going for an HIV test if you haven't done so recently. For accurate testing results, you should wait 4 weeks from your last high risk exposure and then go for an HIV antibody test. 
Here is a link with testing sites in the Vancouver area:

You may also wish to get tested for other STIs as well, (Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia) as these are more easily passed than HIV during intercourse. 
Please feel free to write back if you have any more questions/concerns. 
Cheers,
Elyse
