need-help
« on: August 19, 2007, 04:19:54 AM »
I had the  unprotected oral sex.  She performed oral sex on me (I was insertive). 
13 days after exposure i began feeling like flu symptoms:
-simple fever for 2 days
-Headache
-runny nose   
-Weakness
-Body aches
-weakness and tiredness
-Chills 

(All symptoms ended after 3 days)

I am very afraid about these symptoms 

I have these tests after exposure :
 
20 days hiv P24 antigen elisa and also hiv 1&2 ab  by using 3rd genertion
4 weeks hiv 1&2 ab  elisa
5 weeks 1&2 ab  by using 3rd generation

All tests were negative

What is the risk of transmission of HIV?

Does this symptoms for HIV?

Do you think i need more test? and what about accurate the p24 ag test after antibody tests Result?
 
I was thinking too much  :(




Thanks

You were never at risk and you didn't need a test for HIV.

no,

Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected in this way and you will not be the first.

You do not need further testing over this incident. Your results are not going to change - you ARE hiv negative.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex with a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence. Use them correctly and consistently for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

And one last thing; you applied for a second account here at AIDSmeds. Multiple accounts are against our Terms of Membership which you agreed to when you became a member. This information is also contained within the Welcome Thread, which you should have read by now. So really, you have no excuse.

Please do not attempt to create another account again.

I  could not understand the reason of my symptoms and it perfectly matches the time.

In this forum, everyone says that receiving oral sex is not a risk for HIV, but I called several clinic and They told me"low risk, but not non risk and sites and forums the same thing.

I am still worrying

No,

Symptoms or even the lack of symptoms means absolutely NOTHING when it comes to hiv infection. Only testing will reveal your hiv status.

Once again, getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has EVER been infected this way and it is safe to say you won't be the first.

You do not need further testing over this incident. You ARE hiv negative.

You need to discuss your symptoms, face to face, with a doctor. There are many things in the world which can make you ill and we cannot diagnose what ails you here. We can only tell you that based on a risk assessment of your activities and your negative test results so far, whatever is causing your problems is NOT hiv. Go to your doctor and find out what is really going on.

You do not have hiv. Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions, and you won't have hiv in future either.

How much blood do you think would be needed to get HIV from A BJ...I mean I know saliva inactivates it but how much is too much.

How many ways do you have to be told that NO ONE has ever become infected from getting a blowjob?

And as special a person as you are and with all the details in the world that you are going to anxiously throw into your report, no, you are not going to make history by becoming the first man to become infected in this manner.

Transmission simply doesn't happen in that way. Really.

As has been suggested you need to see  your doctor about your physical problems. They have nothing to do with HIV.

no,

You can worry all you like, but that won't change the fact that saliva is not infectious and you will NOT become hiv positive because of a blowjob. No one ever has and you won't be the first.

Before we go any further with this, let me remind you of the following posting guideline for this forum:

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection and your negative test results are not going to change in relation to this incident.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will continue to avoid hiv infection. It really, really, really, really is that simple! Really!

I have today HIV  antibody Elisa  test  after 7,5 weeks (53 days) from exposure it was  negative
My question is this:If I was having  symptoms 4 weeks before I took a test and the symptoms were HIV related would that mean I should test positive?

no,

Considering that the symptoms some people experience are a result of the process the body goes through to produce antibodies and NOT from the virus itself, yes, you should have tested positive that long after.

But what I really want to know is - what part, exactly, don't you understand about the following statement:

Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection and your negative test results are not going to change in relation to this incident.

No,

Do you even bother to read what we tell you? Ann said:

If you feel ill see a doctor. Your symptoms are not caused by HIV.

no,

I'll say this one more time: Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection and your negative test results are not going to change in relation to this incident.

You are quickly heading for a time out. If you don't know why, read the posting guidelines in the Welcome Thread like you're supposed to. Please consider yourself warned.
