Am I Infected? / Re: Should I be Concerned?

Glad to hear your HIV test came back negative. Was to be expected since you had no risk.  Make sure to repeat STI testing at least yearly.

Take it easy

Hi All, many thanks for you time and assistance. Please confirm the risk on the below.

1. Fingered a lady until Climax.
2. Used the same hand to give myself and HandJob.

Is the risk for transfer and would you recommend testing based on what i described.

Thanks Again

Hey Jim,

Just to give you an update-I got an HIV test earlier today(the method used was some rapid test involving a pin prick of a finger for a blood sample) and it indeed came out negative.

So I am a lot less concerned now.

I am just not looking to the next step which is a health department notification of everyone I've been with. :/

Thank you again for your advice!
Lets hope the Alzheimer's field sees a major advancement, or that there is no relationship to plaque build up from HIV infection in the brain  :-\

I Just Tested Poz / Re: New here and newly diagnosed

Of course try to maintain a reliable schedule, but it's not a big deal to +/- a few hours occasionally.

Then just try to get back on schedule

Have a look in your supermarket. You will have similar things off the shelf

I guess I've never paid attention to it. I have to run to town today anyway so I'll pay more attention. Love the name though.

Everybody that comes here has symptoms,
and yours have nothing to do with HIV so see a doctor if you are sick.
Go do your Woh Hoo !
You did not have any risk for HIV

Best, Wade
