I thought I'd place it in the two relevant forums, because everyone doesn't always go to all forums. But, thanks lol, sorry.

Zach, Robby seems to have found a great workaround with the same molecule prescribed for a different issue at a fraction of the cost?
Of course, cialis is preferred.

That is correct your results are final.
You are worrying needlessly, you do not have HIV.

Hello guys! 2 months ago I was to the barber shop in order to get a new haircut. The barber cut me with the razor blade and I dont know if he changed the blade or not. The time between the previous customer and me was about 5 minutes and I think the cut was a small one, because after 3 days it was completely healed and I couldn't see anything there. I am so depressed, I think I got HIV from this scenario and I dont know what to do. I feel like the anxiety is killing me. Is any test needed and it is conclusive at 2 months post exposure? I am 16 years old, I have never had sex and I have never taken drugs.
I also have 4 swollen lymph nodes at my neck.

Thank you Wade for the quick response. My 3 month test was conclusive and 6 month test was final, right?
I feel like this anxiety has high jacked my life. I just want to be able to move on.

A negative result at 13 weeks is conclusive, it is not HIV that is making you sick so
continue to wok with your doctor. Your risk was theoretical at best to begin with,
so if this is your only concern it is safe to move on.
To avoid infection,
You need to be using condoms for all anal and vaginal intercourse until you are in a trusting monogamous relationship and both have been tested for all STIs and HIV.
Everyone who is sexually active should have an annual exam and test for all STIs and HIV ,and always after unprotected intercourse. Always using condoms will give you peace of mind your tests will return with a negative result.

Thank you for helping the community. This is a very stressful experience and your help is greatly appreciated.
I had unprotected oral sex with a man of unknown status in September 2015. He did not ejaculate in my mouth but I could taste his pre-cum (sorry for being graphic, I just want to be accurate). It is important to note that I had a root canal done a week and half prior to the unprotected fellatio (i know, i am stupid and careless). I also used mouth wash to clean up. We had protected vaginal sex.
About 2 months later, I developed a sore throat, chills, etc. Researched my symptoms online and my nightmare began.
I went to the doctor in December 2015 and got a blood test at the 3 month mark. The blood test was HIV 1/O/2 Abs-ICMA --- result Non Reactive
I also did a couple of Oraquick home test which were negative as well.
I went back to the doctor in 4.5 months (February 2016) and the same blood test was performed HIV 1/O/2 Abs-ICMA --- result Non reactive
I did an Oraquick the day before to calm my anxiety and it was negative.
My doctor said that the CDC recommended to test again at 6 months. So here I am going to the doctor at the 6-month mark (March 2016). The same blood test was performed HIV 1/O/2 Abs-ICMA --- result Non reactive
It is now 8 months later and for some unknown reason, my anxiety is cracking up. Should I get a 4th generation test done? Do I require further testing?
I need to get this anxiety under control. Thank you for everything you do.
