I am HIV negative but doubting the results a year later
« on: July 17, 2006, 01:14:14 PM »
I have tested negative for HIV and all other STD's but recently I have devloped a canker sore in the back of my mouth along with it was a fever and a bit of swolen lymph nodes which are warm to the touch . I have a partner I have been with him for 6 months so far and i dont sleep around with anyone at all but i kiss a lot with my partner and i trust him enough that if we gte physically involved its without protection (which i know is stupid but i tested negative for everything so I am reassured that he is safe ).Care for him so tha last thing i want to is give him anything ...even if it was a regular cold I still wouldnt want to get him sick ...So what could be the problem I dont want to sound like a hypocondriac but i screwed up on my own life ...I dont want to risk someone else's especally the person that i care for and love ....

Some important elements are not clear from what you written. Was your HIV test taken at 13 weeks after the most recent unprotected intercourse? If so, then you have reliably tested negative for HIV.

One of the things not clear from what you have written is whether you and your partner are having unprotected intercourse. Safer sex guidelines should always be followed consistently until when and if partners decide they want to be in a securely monogamous relationship and PRIOR to dispensing with condoms for intercourse both get tested together.

HIV is not something to guess about. If you two want to dispense with using condoms that's ok as long as you both test negative together.

Please clarify if I am missing something here.

As to your "symptoms," canker sores are a very common occurence and in no way to be seen as an HIV specific event. But then neither the presence nor the absence of any symptoms is ever the way to know about your HIV status. Only a test taken at 13 weeks can give you that answer definitively.

If your symptoms persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

Cheers,

Well  without getting too into detail  I had a previous incounter with someone before i met my new partner in september  ..The I  met my new partner in  december and i started going out with him ...Since i didnt know the previouse status of my partner  i got tested in may and came back negative  .My partner and i have unprotected intercourse because  i reassured him i was negative  but now i dont know for sure  and iam so scared that i might of screwed up his life  and i just dont want to think about that at all..Iam trying to relax but iI am totally freaked out  becasue my parents dont know iam with this person . And recently I went to the doctor two weeks ago on Friday  which was july 7th and i told her that I wasnt involved with someone for fear my parents would find out ...Coulld this all be stress related or an actual positive result ...It would be very pecular for me to be positive after testing negative after  9 months which is way past the recomended amount of time to test positive for HIV....Iam so confused and worried out of my mind  i jsut need reassurance ....

GL

I'm with Andy on this and completely confused.
So:

1.  You are having unprotected sex with current boyfriend.
2.  You had unprotected sex with EX-boyfriend in September but tested negative this May.

Based on my assumptions above:

You are negative from Ex boyfriend, conclusively.   However you cannot assume your current partner is negative, even if you were in May.  He needs to get tested.

You and current partner need full tests and 100% monogamy before you have unprotected intercourse.  You could NOT have given your current boyfriend HIV from what you said, however....he could give it to you unless he's tested negative 13 weeks after his last exposure.

Sae.
Meh.

HE said he didnt have anything   he  says  he was clean  as he had his appendix removed a few years ago and he told me they do all sorts of tests  on your body before you have a surgury  because they have to  know your not sick with anything that would make the surgury life threatening to you ...but now iam not so sure ...should i believe my test results or not  becasue I have questioned him many tiems as to his pervious replationships  and he says he doesnt have the time to be with other people cause he is busy with work and other  responcibilities  so i trust him that he is clean .....but all this worries me quite a lot now ....should i just wait six weeks or is that not going to give a conclusive result ....??? or is it possible for me to seroconvert  positive after nine months ???

Yes, SAE has covered the questons very nicely, thanks very much!

You came to your current relationship HIV negative. That's solid. So you can't have given your bf something you don't have. Period.

From what you have described of your situation it does seem there is a lot of emotion and anxiety about your private life vis-a-vis your parents and the outside world. That would certainly explain what appears to me to be a lot of unfounded worry.

You also ought to be clear with your doctor about professional privacy or get yourself another doctor whom you can be comfortable discussing anything you need to.

Until your boyfriend tests negative the insertive partner should be using condoms for intercourse. Period.

OK. You're missing the point here and as a separate issue you need to stop using the word "clean" to refer to either his status or yours. People who are HIV+ are not "dirty." They are people with a virus. That's an important difference.

Your boyfriend maybe a fine fellow and he may very well be accurate about his HIV status. But HIV is not something to guess about. If he's been sexually active prior to your relationship and it sounds as if he has, then a long ago possible test when he had his appendix out doesn't cut it with me. He should get tested now to confirm that he is HIV negative.

You seem to be in a mindset where only you could possibly be carrying the virus when you are the one who has tested negative. What's going on here? Are you hungry to be at fault in some way?

Neither doubts, fears nor swollen lymph nodes invalidate your negative test result.

Actually despite your protestations about being certain of your partner's negative status, his status is the only unknown factor in the situation. He's the one who has not been tested recently. And no, either you or he simply insisting he's negative is not the same as valid, current negative result.

He should get tested and you should stop driving yourself crazy. No kidding.

You are right .....but how  do i go telling him this ? I  already bug him about a million other things ....I havent mentioned to him my ex but i told him I am negative for all  STD"S and HIV. I know I must be getting redundant and i thank you for your patience ....This is why I am never going to be with anyone ever again ...but give me some advice on what i should tell him and how i should go about  things so he doesnt seem like i am accusing him of things ....and what if i should mention my ex at this moment ....would my negative status still reassure him that I am alright or should i get tested again if he gets confused or worried.Sorry for being annoying i dont mean to but this is all new to me ......

How about just taking a deep and slow breath in right now and then letting it out slowly. I'm not kidding. Do it now.

You are way too worked up for your mind to be thinking clearly and you need to do that good deep and slow breathing everytime you start getting anxious.

Your remarks and questions seem to come out of a mindset that thinks it's wrong or insulting of you to want to be certain your bf is HIV negative. How about just saying, you have some concerns about HIV even though you have tested negative. Would he willing to get tested with you -- both of you doing it together. If he says yes, great. If he says no then tell him you hope he will be understanding, but that until you do the test together you will want to use condoms for having intercourse.

I can't predict what his response will be. But as far as I am concerned anyone who's not willing to cooperate regarding getting tested and/or using condoms is not my idea of a good bf, lover, friend or other. And this has nothing to do with your ex. This is strictly between you two today. So don't complicate it by throwing in something that has nothing to do with your present situation.

This is just basic stuff 25 years into the epidemic which we are all living with.

Take your guilt out of the equation. It has no place in this situation.

No kidding.

"If it's not HIV what could it be?" That's a question you need to discuss with your doctor. We can't diagnose you in this setting nor could anyone responsibly do so.

What's important to know is that it does not by default become an HIV situation simply because you haven't yet had a proper diagnosis or because your anxious mind is telling you it's HIV.

Go see a doctor.

Great,

You need to stop and get a hold of yourself.  You are in the midst of a major panic attack, and one that is NOT grounded in reality.  Basically, you aren't making sense.

You were negative before your new boyfriend.  Accept that and stop the rest of your mental gymnastics.   Nevermind what you did or didn't do none of it matters.

The answer to the rest of your questions and panic is no on the stuff where you think you are positive, and YES on the stuff where you sort of accept you are negative.

Get a hold of yourself.  Perhaps stay off the site until you can calm down because this attack you are in has nothing to do with HIV.  Only your current boyfriend needs a test and that's it.  The rest is low self image and lower self esteem.

Sae.

Great,

As the vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks, a negative result at that time would be a very good indication of your true status.

You and your partner need to test TOGETHER before you continue having unprotected intercourse. You cannot know his true hiv status through YOUR test results.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse without testing together first is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.


I've locked the second thread you started. Please keep all your additional thoughts and questions in this thread. I also locked your poll. Ask your questions directly, please.

Great,

The only thing you can be reassured about in this situation is that you could not have transmitted hiv to him. However, that tells you nothing about HIS status. For all you know, he may be hiv positive and not know himself. You cannot tell a person's hiv status by looking at them, or by what you think you know about their history or what they assume about their hiv status. ONLY testing will give you the answers you seek.

Hiv status is nothing to assume or guess about. Get tested together or use condoms. To do anything else is to risk hiv infection.

I know I might be a bit of a hypocondriac  but still he told me not to call him today becasue i annoyed him so much about it ..
It seems to me like he is hiding something and wont tell me ....should i mention my ex ? or no ?I dont think I should mention my ex because it will put strain on an already somewhat unstable situation ....He keeps reassuring me he doesnt sleep around with people and his status is fine and i believed him .....I am just at a loss for words .....I hope everything comes out alright at testing at 6 weeks .Would the test be  acuurate at 6 weeks or should i wait untill the whole 13 to be extra  sure the test is and was negative ......

Great,

Your ex has nothing to do with this situation. You were hiv negative going into your current relationship. You need to get yourself tested and use condoms until such time as your partner has also tested. You can tell him "either test or we use condoms". If he refuse to do the right thing where your health as well as his is concerned, then maybe it's better to know now.

Testing is the only way to know his status and until you know his status, you should be using condoms. Period.

Looser,

Getting all worked up about this isn't doing you any good. Yes, you need to chill out. Keep yourself productively busy until it is time to test. All the worry in the world will not change your test results - and frankly, I'm expecting a negative.

Loser,

Your test was reliable as long as it was done 12-13 weeks after your last unprotected encounter. If you were already having unprotected intercourse with your current boyfriend when you had it done, then you were still in a window period.

Loser,

If you tested 12-13 weeks after the last unprotected encounter with your previous boyfriend, then you were hiv negative going into your new relationship.

However, as we do not know the status of your current boyfriend, and if you tested after you were having unprotected intercourse with him, then you were in a new window period with your current boyfriend.

I hope you are now using condoms with your current boyfriend until he gets tested.

We can't tell you what is going on with your body. Only a doctor can.

I can tell you this though - the extra muscle tension caused by prolonged anxiety can cause the tingling sensations you are experiencing. Only your doctor can tell you if this is the cause in your case. Go see your doctor.

Great,

Have protected sex from now on and you'll no longer be cornered.  Condoms are excellent protection from hiv infection.  Use them every time until you are in a securely  monogomous relationship where you have BOTH tested negative for all STI's.

Great,

Alright, stop with the drama.  Crying wolf will just create a situation where no one will take you seriously.  Your "life and death" situation is centered on your relationship with this new guy who is apparently blowing you off rather than taking your concerns seriously. 

Re-read the advice you've been given in this thread, and make a decision on a course of action.

Loser,

As you do not use punctuation, readable grammar, or paragraphs, your posts are difficult to follow. Here's what I've pieced together - and if any of it is wrong, say so.

I'm interested in the time-line here, NOT the intimate details. The only relevant detail is the fact that you do not use condoms for anal intercourse with your current partner.

You broke up with your ex in Sept 2005.

You got with your current partner in December 2005.

(You do not use condoms with your current partner.)

You tested hiv negative in May 2006.

Now, the advice:

Your negative result in May means that you are conclusively negative from the date of your test, back three months to the same date in February.

So, if you tested May 15, consider yourself hiv negative on February 15th and BEFORE February 15th.

However, because you do NOT use condoms with your current partner, are in a new window period.

You need to test 12-13 weeks after the last time you had unprotected anal intercourse with your CURRENT partner, or any one else you may have had intercourse with since February. Don't count oral and don't count intercourse with a condom.

You need to test 12-13 weeks after your last experience of unprotected intercourse.

You should be using condoms until BOTH of you have tested negative. If you test negative again after this window period, it does NOT tell you the hiv status of your partner. Only a test done on HIM will tell you his hiv status.

Test at the appropriate time. Both of you.

Loser,

The only thing your May 15th hiv test tells you is that you were definitely hiv negative on February 15 and BEFORE February 15th.

As you have been having unprotected intercourse with your current boyfriend, you do not know your current hiv status because you do not know if you partner is hiv negative or hiv positive.

You need to test 12-13 weeks after your last incident of unprotected intercourse with your current partner, and you need to start using condoms with your current partner until you know HIS status through HIS current test. Only if you are BOTH hiv negative can you stop using condoms.

I hope that is clear.

Loser,

No. Because you have been having unprotected intercourse with someone whose hiv status is unknown, you only know that you were negative in February.

I picked May 15th because you said you were tested in May but didn't give the date. The exact date doesn't matter - I only used that date to illustrate what I was saying.

You do not know your partner's hiv status. As you have been having unprotected intercourse with him since February, if he is hiv positive, you could have been infected by him anytime between February and now. You only know that you WERE hiv negative sometime in February and BEFORE.

You need to test 12-13 week after your LAST unprotected intercourse, no matter who it was with. You do not currently know your hiv status as you have been having unprotected intercourse with a person whose hiv status you do not know.

You and your partner BOTH need to test. Until you BOTH test, you need to use condoms.

Your previous partner's hiv status is unknown. You came out of that relationship hiv negative, regardless of what your previous partner's hiv status was.

Your CURRENT partner's hiv status is UNKNOWN. This is why you are in a new window period. You need to test for any unprotected intercourse since February.

You need to test 12-13 weeks after your LAST unprotected intercourse with your CURRENT partner. He needs to test - even if you again test negative. You cannot know HIS status by YOUR test results.

Your former partner's hiv status is UNKNOWN.

Your current partner's hiv status is UNKNOWN.

YOUR hiv status is UNKNOWN.

YOU and your CURRENT PARTNER BOTH must test 12-13 weeks after the last time you had unprotected intercourse. ONLY THEN WILL YOU KNOW YOUR STATUS OR YOUR PARTNER'S STATUS. YOU BOTH MUST TEST.

No, that is incorrect. Even if he was positive doesn't mean that you'll be positive. Continuing to have unprotected sex will most likely gain you the gift of being infected.

Ok that doesnt make any sense .If that was corred how come i wasnt infected .Why do u think the HIV epidemic has gotten this far as it has ...uqestion if he was positive then how come I didnt test positive for HIV .... doest it tell you that you got it from the person you slept with if you tested positive  wouldnt that indicate the status of the person you where with ...i was just with my current b/f and my ex and that is all i dont sleep around with people .Ok rapid rod when you say even if he was positive and i got out ok how come that is ? wouldnt I be poz as well from him ? if it was like that I am sure no one would ever have to deal with this  horrible  disease ..... I am sorry for being  rude i dont mean to but this hits hard home for me as i recently had to burry my friend as he died of an AIDS related illness so this has all gotten me confused and I appologize for being rude or disrespectful i just want to know the straight deal ....tell me the truth that is what i need and I am asking ...
You cant jsut become positive out of nowhere  it takes someone else ...So I dont understand how you can say that  you cant go by the results of your test ....If i was poz (god forbid)i would of had gotten it from my  current partner (god forbid) which means that he was HIV poz

Great,

Focus on the way testing works. 

Anytime you test for hiv, because of the window period, it only tells you your status 3 months prior to the test date.

So if you tested on May 15 (as an example), your result tells you your conclusive status as of Feb 15.  Understand??

So any sexual activity following that 3 month prior date (again for example Feb 15), would not be covered by that test.

If you've been having unprotected sex within that "window" (the 3 months prior to a given test), you will need to test again 3 months after the new given exposure.

Is this making sense???

Unless you know conclusively that the person you have "been" with is hiv negative (through testing at the APPROPRIATE time), then your status is thrown into question.

Loser,

Exposure to hiv does not necessarily mean infection.

For example. My partner and I were together for a year and a half, having unprotected intercourse, BEFORE we found out I was hiv positive. We didn't know for a whole eighteen months of our relationship that I was hiv positive.

He tested NEGATIVE, despite repeated exposures. Although he didn't get infected in that first year and a half of our relationship, he could become infected the very next time we had unprotected intercourse, so we no longer do that. We use condoms now and he remains hiv negative.

For all you know, your current partner might be hiv positive and not know, just like I didn't know. If he is positive, and you continue to have unprotected intercourse with him, you will eventually become positive too. BUT, it might not happen right away.

The ONLY thing you can know from your test results so far is that you were negative when you met your new partner, and you were negative up until some time in February 2006.

You and your partner BOTH need to test 12-13 weeks after your last unprotected act of intercourse together.

I think the misunderstanding has come from your belief that one exposure will guarantee infection. It does not work like that. It might be the first time you are exposed, or it might be the 100th time you are exposed. Stop taking this chance.

You need to use condoms until you and your partner - your current one, or anyone in the future - have tested negative TOGETHER.

Well as lolng as I came into the relationship HIV negative I am ok for now ...my main concern was unwilligly passing it on to him ..or fearing that I did if the test results where wrong ....Dont they usally say it takes one expouser to get HIV?? .Now this isnt making any sense.. if that wasnt the case how come people get sick with the disease after there  first time expousure even some experts say you can get infected fter the first time  ....that is what happened to my good friend .....but also ann ..thats what I needed to know that my status was ok before i met my new partner.... that was my main conern i trust him wholeheartidly and he trusts me ...I trusted the results fully but now I am begining to doubt them now  and its scary...as long as i came into the relationship HIV negative I am alright

Loser,

You CAN get infected the first time. Just because you CAN doesn't mean you WILL. It might happen the first time, or it might happen the 100th time you have unprotected intercourse with an hiv positive person.

You are NOT alright for now. You do NOT know your current partner's hiv status.

You do NOT know YOUR CURRENT hiv status. You ONLY know your hiv status during and BEFORE February 2006.


I'm at a loss as to how to make this any clearer.

You AND your partner need to test.

You AND your partner need to use condoms until you have BOTH tested negative - TOGETHER.

Loser,

You DO NOT KNOW your previous partner's hiv status. You CANNOT know someone else's hiv status through YOUR test. He might have been hiv positive and you just didn't become infected.

You also DO NOT KNOW your CURRENT partner's hiv status. If he does turn out to be positive, he got it from someone other than you, because you were hiv negative when you started this current relationship.

If he is hiv negative, you have no worries. HOWEVER. Just because you tested negative does NOT mean that he is too. Re-read my post where I talked about my own situation.

As you do not know for CERTAIN that your current partner is hiv negative, you need to do one of two things.

1. Both get tested together so you can actually see for yourself what HIS test result is. This is the only way to know HIS hiv status. Testing is the only way to know hiv status. He might be hiv positive and not know, just like I didn't know - until I tested.

2. If your partner will not test, then you MUST use condoms with him. Your health is nothing to mess around with.

Loser,

If my partner and ONLY my partner had tested for hiv, I would not know that I am hiv positive. He managed to remain hiv negative despite having unprotected intercourse with me for a year and a half. He was lucky. He COULD have become infected - and he still CAN - but only if we were to continue having unprotected intercourse. We don't. We use condoms now.

Live isn't always black and white. Your partner could be hiv positive REGARDLESS of what your own test results are.

Unless your partner ALSO tests for hiv and test negative for hiv, you MUST use condoms when having intercourse with him.

YOU CANNOT KNOW ANOTHER PERSON'S HIV STATUS GOING BY YOUR OWN TEST RESULTS. HIV TESTS ONLY REVEAL THE STATUS OF THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE TEST.

Use condoms with your partner until he tests - and tests negative.

You can stop worrying (and using condoms) when your PARTNER ALSO TESTS HIV NEGATIVE and only then.

Have you had unprotected sex with your new partner? If so the answer is NO. You'll need to test again at 12/13 weeks past the last unprotected sex.

Loser,

A test at six weeks will be a very good indication of your hiv status but must be confirmed at 12-13 weeks.

An ELISA test is the standard test for hiv. It is what you would have used already. PCR testing is NOT approved for diagnostic purposes. Get an ELISA done at six weeks past your last unprotected encounter.

Unless your current partner also gets tested and tests negative, you MUST use condoms with him REGARDLESS of what YOUR test results are.

Please get your partner to test.

Loser,

Yes, you are conclusively negative from your last partner.

Yes, you do need to get your current partner to test.

If he refuses to test, you MUST use condoms with him.

You could NOT have given hiv to your current partner, because you were hiv negative when you started this relationship and you said you have not been with anyone else since your previous partner.

The question mark is hanging over your current partner. If he tests negative, you have no worries.

If he refuses to test, you cannot know his true hiv status and so you must use condoms.

If you keep basing your status on what some one said theirs was, I will guarantee you that if you continue to keep having unprotected sex you are going to become HIV positive. You can not rely on what someone tells you, or how they look.

Loser,

The concern here isn't that you infected your current partner, but that your current partner MIGHT infect YOU.

I understand that you trust him when he claims to be hiv negative and I'm not accusing him of lying about his status. I'm saying that unless he has tested himself, he doesn't actually know his hiv status.

You need to be using condoms with him until you have both tested hiv negative.

Please accept my condolences over the loss of your friend.

Your second to last post (Reply #92) is correct. You've finally got it.

ASO stands for AIDS Service Organisation.

Good luck with your testing, and don't forget to be using condoms with your current partner until you have BOTH tested negative.

Look Loser,

You have been told time and time again that you tested conclusively for your earlier concerns. The problem here isn't you giving your boyfriend hiv, it's the possibility of him giving it to YOU. If you've had unprotected intercourse with him since your last test, you are in a new window period and need to test again.

Until your boyfriend also tests, you need to use condoms with him. You cannot possibly know HIS status going by YOUR test results.

Re-read your thread again and again until it sinks in, ok?

see the thing is i had sex with my ex  in december of 2005 before i met my new partner ....I met my new partner had sex with him tested negative in may of 2006..i am paranoid that the test came out inconclusive . My partner says he doesnt have time for Gf's cause he is so busy at the time .right now we arent together anymore  but i am just so worried i didnt do the testing the right way and got a false result ....*sigh* what do i do ..When i went to get my  urine and blood samples checked out by the doctor for my UTI they said my  C4 levels where ok but isnt that checked out during a normal Complete blood count test ?...cause i retuned all normal on those tests ...they didnt see a decrese in anything .....This is the last time i am going to freak out i promise ... I know 30 days isnt really a reliable time to get tested again but i need to quiet my fears ....but waiting alone will make it worst for me it would be like reliving it the first time around in may when i got it done .....Ann iam so sorry for this ...i hate bugging everyone here with my worries but I jsut dont know what to do right now ......My boyfriend didnt know i was with someone perviously  because i got tested and told him my results ......now i dont know what to Do

Loser,

I give up. I've tried time and time again to explain to you that you tested conclusively negative from your contact with your ex boyfriend. You need to test again because of your current boyfriend (well, current ex) because you don't know HIS status. As you are no longer together, you will need to test 12-13 weeks after your last unprotected intercourse with him.

When was the last time you had unprotected intercourse with this last guy in your life? You need to test 12-13 weeks from that date. No ands, ifs or buts about it.

You really need to start using condoms for intercourse, no exceptions unless you and he - whoever he may be - have tested TOGETHER.

Loser,

Here's what you do. Next Monday, August 21st, go test. That is your six week point. The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks. A negative result next Monday would mean that it is highly unlikely that you are infected. You'd have to confirm that during the first week in October.

In the mean time, by all means, CHILL OUT and use condoms if you have intercourse again.

FFS!

I asked you when the last time you had UNPROTECTED INTERCOURSE with him. If you have not had UNPROTECTED INTERCOURSE with him, you DON'T NEED FURTHER TESTING.

It's not just anal intercourse that is risky. ANY UnPROTECTED INTERCOURSE IS RISKY.

Loser,

What? How many times do I have to explain?

You did not become infected with hiv from the ex you had intercourse with in December. Your test in May tells us this. Your test in May is conclusive where your December ex is concerned.

I'm now unclear about your new ex. I asked you earlier when the last time you had UNPROTECTED INTERCOURSE with him was and you came back and it seems that you've only given him a blowjob. If this is correct, then you don't actually need further testing.

If you HAVE had UNPROTECTED anal OR vaginal INTERCOURSE with him, you need to test at least six weeks after when you had intercourse. NOT blowjob, not fingering, not whatever, ONLY intercourse.

Do you hear that thudding noise? That's my head and the nearest wall.

Loser,

What? Help you how? How could you not realise, after all your time here, that your test in May means you are conclusively negative from your first ex?

This is getting beyond a joke. Either you are so lacking in the intelligence department that I don't know how you manage to get out of bed in the morning, or you are winding us up.

The bottom line here - and I'm going to be blunt - is that you need to test 12-13 weeks after the last time you let someone - ANYONE - fuck you without a condom. I can't get plainer than that. OK?

If you HAVE tested at least 12-13 weeks after the last time you got fucked without a condom being worn, then you do NOT need further testing.

I'm done here. Don't bother PMing me or anyone else either. Keep this up and you will be given a time out.

Loser,

There is NOTHING more we CAN do for you. We gave you all the information you could possibly need. There is nothing more we can do. YOU need to go test at the appropriate time. We cannot do that for you.

I suggest you seek out some face to face help and support for your intense anxiety. We cannot give you counseling over the internet - that is far outside the scope of this forum. Get a referral from your regular doctor and see a therapist.

Just take a freaking regular hiv test and get it over with. You still haven't said when the last time you had unprotected intercourse with your new ex was - you need to test six weeks after that. Not after a blowjob, after unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. If you haven't been having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse with your new ex then you don't need to test at all and all this has been a colossal waste of time, bandwidth and energy. 

Now go see a professional about your anxiety. I'm ~this close~ to giving you a time out - window period or no window period.

If you are saying that you haven't had unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse since three months before your test in May, then you don't need further testing.

Loser,

C4 levels are nothing to do with hiv. (you're thinking of CD4 levels). C4 levels are something to do with lupus if I'm not mistaken and lupus has nothing to do with hiv. Your doctor is simply looking for the reason behind your kidney problem. You need to talk to your doctor about this, not us.

You still have not told us when the last time you EVER had unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse was. The phrase "fooling around" does not tell us anything. You need to test 12-13 weeks after your last unprotected intercourse - that's fucking without a condom - and I really don't understand what's so difficult to take on board about that.

Loser,

If your test in May was 12-13 weeks after the last time ANYONE fucked you without a condom on, then you are conclusively hiv negative. IF it was at least six weeks after the last time ANYONE fucked you without a condom on, then it is highly unlikely that you are hiv positive.

If your test in May was LESS THAN six weeks after the last time someone fucked you without a condom, then you need to test again.

NO, we told you that you were conclusively negative from your first ex.

If you let your second ex fuck you without a condom, then you need to test 12-13 weeks after the last unprotected fuck.

This isn't rocket science you know.

Did you or did you not fuck your last ex without a condom? You still haven't said.

Loser,

I've told you that you tested conclusively from your first ex more times than I care to think about.

It sounds as though you have NOT tested conclusively from your SECOND ex. You need to test 12-13 weeks after the last unprotected fuck with your SECOND ex. As I said before, the SECOND ex is the wildcard here.

Loser,

You    need    to    test    twelve    to    thirteen    weeks    after    the    last    time    you     fucked    your    new    (ex)    partner    withOUT    a    condom.

When was the last time you fucked him without a condom?

Not blowjob, not fingering, not looking at him - fucking him without a condom. Only. That's what you need to test over.

Loser,

As I told you yesterday, if the last unprotected incident with him was July 10, you can test next week for a six week result. This will be a very good indication of your status as a six week negative rarely changes.

I am HIV negative but doubting the results a year later
« Reply #165 on: April 06, 2007, 10:07:56 PM »
Ever since my last HIV negative result of last year I have stopped going to the boards .But for some odd reason latley I have been doubting my results I know I shouldnt But right now I am involved with someone who I really love honestly and I dont want to hurt him .I have no idea why  I still doubt the results I spoke about this with my mother and she said that I cant doubt science and medeciine because the doctors would never lie to you But it still doesnt clear my head .I have a question also I wanted to know what is the accurate time frame for getting tested Three months after unprotected Sex or Six .I had a few HIV  scares before but that information is a bit  odd to me and I am trying to verify it .
What should I do about me doubting my test results ? Should I get tested again ? and forget about it for good  ?

As long as you tested HIV negative at 13 weeks or more after a possibly risky incident then you are HIV negative. Period. End of story.

There's no need to re-test. What should you do? This is not really about HIV. It's about thoughts and feelings and HIV fears are being (mis)used as the object of your attention. If you can't let go of this unwarranted fear then I would say see a therapist or other like professional to get some help in sorting out your feelings about this. More testing will not address that.

And of course, if you have intercourse with anyone, make sure that the guy is always, ALWAYS wearing a condom. No exceptions.

This is NOT an HIV situation. Period.

Looser,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection. Sex with a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the 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.

emeber me ? thank you for being patient with me all those months ago when I was paniking about my HIV status .Well unfortunetly that uneast feeling has returned . I dont know why but I feel as if something is wrong with me and I am actually HIV +.Latley I have people including my parents tell me I have lost weight eventhough I eat like a pig and dont exercise one bit and yesterday I felt really exausted but I guess that is a result of wisdom teeth growing in .I am sure as you are aware of or dont know I broke up with my last current ex boyfriend of last year in august and I am in a current relationship with my boyfriend of nine months whom I love dearly ,.We always used condoms early on in our relationship and I told him honestly i was HIV - and had the papers to back up my statement and was willing to show to him just in case he had doubts to which he said he didnt need to see them ,which infuriated me because you cannot go just by trust in a relationship.But I dont know what is wrong with me , I keep exposing myself to the virus ,as my now current boyfriend is not tested as i trust him deeply that he is not HIV + or has an comunicable diseases ,I know you cannot go by trust alone but I dont know why I do .I always have educated myself on the topics of STD's and HIV/AIDS and made it a priority of practing safety ,and safe sex but i have been very lax and now iam not so sure what to do , i have had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend many times , as I told him I was conclusivly HIV - now all the feelings of those many months ago have risen to the surface again , how do i explain to my current boyfriend the situation and get him to test , I am jsut looking for advice this time , I am sorry to bother you in any manner as i know you are extremly busy

GL,

My advice is that you get yourself into counseling to discover why you keep putting yourself at risk for hiv infection. You know the score - you need to be using condoms every time until you are securely monogamous and have tested together.

We can only tell you how to protect yourself. We cannot force you to do it.

1. You've had unprotected sex so you need to get tested at 13 weeks for a conclusive answer.

2. You clearly know better about having unprotected sex but you still persist for whatever your personal reasons in stirring up problems for yourself.

3. Hopefully you are going to test negative. A negative at 6 weeks is a good thing but it is not conclusive. A very small number take longer to seroconvert. So you still need to re-test at 13 weeks.

4. Stop apologizing. It doesn't ring true. We're not here to handhold you through everytime you act impulsively and have unprotected intercourse.

5. As you were told before, it's time for you to see a therapist or other mental health professional to find out why you're acting in ways that put your life at risk. We can't resolve that kind of issue for you here.

6. Good luck with your test. You should be using condoms everytime you have intercourse no matter whom you are with until you are in a securely monogamous relationship in which both partners have tested negative together at a reliable testing point.

Loser,

You don't have hiv. How could you possibly have given it to your father?

And even if you WERE hiv positive, the only way you'd give it to your father is if you'd been having unprotected anal sex with him.

You ARE hiv negative. It's high time you sought out a therapist so you can learn how to deal with your hiv phobia. We cannot help you with that here.

If I have to give you another time out to encourage you to seek help, it will be for two months as it will be your second.
