Hi Betty,

Thank you for your reply. Would there have been any chance of exposure if the vaginal fluids passed through my underwear and entered the penis?

Do I need an HIV test for this incident? If so, would 3 months be conclusive and definitive for an insti test?

Thank you again Betty. Really appreciate it.

Best regards,

Great Pix ! . I love going to that park . They have a flea market twice a month there with lots of local goods and produce and its spans many acres and you can spend a day it . Its also the only state park in Alabama that makes a profit and it pays the bills for all the other parks as well . When I was a kid I had a great Aunt and Uncle that lived there in a log cabin as the caretakers and they lived for the most part as you would have in 1800's . Johnny cash and many other country stars used to visit them in the 60's and 70's just to sit on the porch and play music with my aunt .

Los síntomas no son específicos para el VIH, de forma que es la razón por la cual nunca hablar de ellas. Mantener la fe en que todo irá bien y se hacen la prueba a las 6 semanas.

No tiene un riesgo de infección con el VIH en el incidente, pero la prueba del VIH es una responsabilidad que debe ser de todos los adultos sexualmente activos a pesar de que no tienen un riesgo .

DNA-snipping enzyme called a nuclease

Sounds like a Zinc Finger nuclease.  Sangamo must be pleased.

One month negative after today's test HIV test. Will test again at 3 for final conclusion but am comfortable and reassure by my doctors. Thanks for the support. I went to a dark place - places I've never been in all my life. I didn't know it was possible for the human mind to go to these places. Fear is a powerful thing. My wife supported me despite my infidelities. I'm a practical level headed business professional and human being but the mind is more powerful than I ever realised. Anxiety like so many people have said can play havoc on you physically. I didn't want to believe it but almost immediately upon hearing 'negative' - I broke down in tears, in relief, and within a few hrs am back to me. I've rarely cried in my life and this situation I hope will be for the best. My symptoms like severe headache = anxiety. My stomach ache, malaise and fatigue = all anxiety. However I'll never be the same after this experience. It has changed me forever. I feel for anyone in the same situation. No one in the world deserves the fear of such a crude disease, whether you're facing it, or living with it. My heart goes out to anyone impacted by HIV and aids. I've done a lot of sporting and adventure type charity over the years but cancer and heart disease have always been my focus. I've always thought of HIV as something heterosexuals have little to fear. How wrong I am and hearing of people's stories both positive and negative who are consumed with fear, I see things differently than ever before. I commit my future charity endeavours to this dreadful disease and I don't mean to belittle anyone who is living life to the full despite being impacted by HIV. I don't want to see anyone suffer from this and pray that in our lifetime even bigger leaps and bounds will be made in finding a cure.
