aj174:
over the last three months I was reading your forum as a guest, I had a possible "low risk" exposure, oral...precum, had a small fever after a week, started to panic  and you know the rest, I had tons of anxiety before checking out this forum, but reading your comments guys (moderators and members) is what made this three months go fast and my anxiety go into a calm. I just came back from the doctor and my test was negative. I did not know where to post this at but I just wanted to say thank you!!!!!! for all the knowledge I gained from this forum.

aj,

If your test was done three months or more after what you perceive to be a risky encounter, then you ARE hiv negative. Protect your negative status by using condoms correctly and consistently for anal or vaginal intercourse, no exceptions.

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.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.
