HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

oraquick

tommy223:
how reliable would a negative oraquick test at 32 days after exposure be? the only risk( which some might say is no risk) is performing oral sex on a female sex worker. i had protected vaginal sex with her as well. she was an upper class escort.

RapidRod:
After 4 weeks? It's not... Doesn't matter if you what type of woman you had sex with it was protected and you're not at risk. Just remember it's not the type of person but the TYPE of sex.

Andy Velez:
Whether you're with a pro or with a civilian is irrelevant. The core issue as far as HIV is concerned is whether a condom was used for intercourse or not. In your case it was, so you were protected and there's no cause to be concerned.

As far as your having gone down on her that is a risk only in theory. In actuality transmission just doesn't happen that way.

Keep using those latex condoms and you'll be fine. They do the job.

I don't see any need for testing in relation to this incident. Hopefully you will never have a risky incident. But if you do, the CDC recommends testing at 13 weeks. The average time to seroconversion is 22 days and all but the smallest number that are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after an exposure to the HIV virus.

Cheers,

hi there. i have a serious situation. i have a tenant who is actively injecting drugs through needles. i have always had my suspicions. now i know for sure. when i was downstairs trying to fix the vent for the bathroom. i found a needle hidden in the drop ceiling. it did have a cap on it however. i did not get pricked. but, now i am paranoid that i will come across one again and get pricked. after the fact, i did a little snooping around and found another on under the cushion on his couch, i did a little research on how long hiv can survive inside a needle. i have read a few days to a few weeks. please help.

tommy223:
