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.

Loser,

I'm giving you a short time out until Tuesday, when you can log on and tell us your test results. We've told you everything we can and if you want reassurance, you can re-read the 161 posts in your thread. You will be able to read the forum but not log on or post.

Do NOT create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned, no questions asked.

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.

looser,

I deleted a reply you posted in the LTS forum. As someone who is not hiv positive, the ONLY forums you may post in are the Off Topic forum and this forum. This information is contained in the Welcome Thread and you've been here long enough to know this.

Consider yourself sternly warned.

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.
