Awaiting the results of the 6 week test
« on: September 17, 2007, 10:30:04 AM »
Well - I went for my 6 week test last Friday (blood).    Should have the results this Friday.

It's strange, I'm not a wreck about it.  Maybe it's because we've been through so much in the last two months that I'm just calmer now? I'm not sure.

It should prove interesting-  My gynecologist has always called me with my annual "negative" result.  If he tells me to come in, I suppose I know whats up?   :-\

Hey there

Keeping everything crossed for you - makes doing the laundry difficult but what the heck!  I know you will cope whatever the result as you have great strength, but you know what I am wishing for with all my heart.  Sending lots of hugs.

What state are you in?? I am in Iowa and the system here is pretty shitty, they do an oral swab, they claim they can do the confirmatory(western blot) with saliva. So maybe unprotected oral sex isn't that safe at all...

The ability to discern HIV antibodies and viral particles in saliva is not at all indicative of infectious properties in saliva.  You can find viral particles in sweat and tears as well. I urge you to read our extensive and very well researched LESSONS forums.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
