Yes, it would show. And now you need to back off of here. You can indulge in this dramarama with yourself if you choose to. But we've had enough.

You're going to test negative because you didn't have any risk to begin with. This is not an HIV situation and you have exploited our goodwill quite enough.

Get on with your life. Really.

Hi ,

Ive calmed down a little now. I had a blood test after "doctor doom" inncedent and no HIV no Hep b/c
so i guess i was pretty much looking at the big picture and saw where i went looney.
the only issue that came up was my ATL level was at 75 < doc got worried about Hepititats.
a few days before that i took alot of panadol and lemsip (which has parasetamol) and some pain
releaf pills that also had parasetamol which he assume could have been the problem. i too another
test 2 days later and my ATL went down to 65. the doc said to try not to worry. the rimjob incedent with her flossing and my cut on my butt was 13 weeks from the test which came back negative for hep so that should be cool right? ive felt abit sick in the stomach and tired...maybe thats just from worrying so much.

but you guys proberbly dont deal with those questions. im not gonna be a pain in the ass and hoon about hepititas.
ive cause enough chaos and im sorry about that :(

I presume you mean that your ALT (not ATL) was a bit high. Yes excessive use of paracetamol (aka acetaminophen) can cause your liver function test results to return high readings. You should follow your doctor's advice in this regard.

but you guys proberbly dont deal with those questions. im not gonna be a pain in the ass and hoon about hepititas.

You're quite correct. We've already answered your questions. You never had an HIV risk to begin and thus your test result was negative. As we said it would be.

It's really time for you to move on.

k after my ALT level was high and dropped (65) i partied for my birthday and got drunk 2 nights in a row. 5 days later i had another liver function test and my
ALT has dropped to like 27 and my GGT and AST are great. is that a great sign? i mean for all i know my ALT levels were probably only up 2 weeks or so?

also i still feel abit sick when i eat.(Not Alot) and i feel an uncomfortable feel just under my rips on the right side of my back. is this all in my head?

why,

This is an hiv website, not an "I've been drinking too much and my liver hurts" website. You need to take your liver and drinking concerns to your doctor. We cannot diagnose you here.

There is nothing more we can do for you here.

You're perilously close to being given a time out. What's a time out? Read the Welcome thread and find out for yourself.

Why,

With the greatest of respect, what part of "this is an HIV website" isn't getting through to you?

You've been with us for over 12 months. You know what we do here, and hepatitis isn't it. Your liver and brain problems are a matter for you, your doctor and your counselor. We're simply not able to provide you with the support you need.

This isn't an Hep website. This website deals with HIV.

Go to your doctor if you have a concern about hepatitis.

This sounds like more of your what if scenarios, but if you are serious about wanting to know then see your doctor who can arrange the necessary test if he/she thinks there is are serious grounds for being concerned, which by the way I don't.

Hi ,

Ill try make this short.
Ive been having sex with someone for a while maybe a year, she travels alot so i only see her from time to time.
i finally decieded to have unprotected sex with her because we became pretty close.
about 3 weeks later i got this little rash on my chest, not on the trunk just around the top part.
the next day i started getting a fever that pretty much only lasted about 24 hours or so.
with it i had the whole muscle ache but i guess that comes with fever but the rashed stayed.
its a pinkish colour , i also have a dry cough.

1)Should i be worried?

2) how long does a ARS fever last for.

3) when you press on a rash is it good that it turns skin colour , or is an ars rash the same.

why,

It's a shame you didn't heed my advice I gave you back in July 2006. Unless you have tested together with this woman before you stopped using condoms, you need to test at three months to discover your hiv status.

Symptoms, or even the lack of symptoms, means nothing when it comes to diagnosing hiv infection. The ONLY way to know your status is to test.

More than likely, what you will catch, is a permanent time out.

i was kissing a woman of an unknown status and she bit the top of my lip cutting it open.
is it possible to catch it through this?

We've been through this with you too many times. After 33 posts you should know the answer to this. I cannot see what else we can do for you.

I'm flicking this to the Moderators for review.

Why,

The post above is your ONLY post that describes a real risk. You had unprotected intercourse with someone of unknown hiv status.

You need to test three month past your last incident of unprotected intercourse for a conclusive result.

EVERYTHING else you brought here was NO RISK. Including the latest cut lip scenario.

Keep bringing NO RISK activities here and you'll end up timed out or possibly even banned. You should know by now what is and what is not a risk for hiv infection. I'm tired of telling you.
