Help!
« on: April 30, 2008, 02:12:44 PM »
Hi,
I'm new and never posted but I've been reading this site and think everyone on here is awesome for how helpful and supportive they are to everyone who comes on.

Here is my situtation.  I gave a guy a very brief blowjob...perhaps 3 min at most...probably less.  There might have been pre-cum but definatly no ejaculate.  I was fine until he told me about 2 weeks before that he had been having sex with a girl and the condom broke and she was also on her period.  He claims it was broken for a minute at most and he immediately ran to wash the blood off of his exposed penis.  This freaked me out.  So then I went into full fledged panic mode.  I can't assume this girl had HIV but it really scared me.  I went and got a rapid finger prick test at 6 weeks...neg....he tested neg after 8 weeks from the blood exposure.  I also went and got a DNA PCR and 6.5 weeks....just came back neg.  I know you people don't recommend the DNA PCR for a variety of reasons.  However, do to my low risk possible exposure and my negative results from both tests...can I put this behind me?  Thank you for all your help!

Yes you can put this incident behind you. You are not HIV positive.

We don't recommend DNA PCR testing because of the unacceptably high rate of false positive results it can produce. For this reason it's not approved as a diagnostic tool. Rather it's used to monitor HIV disease and treatment progress in people who have been infected.

Please take the time to read our Welcome Thread and follow the links to our Lessons to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted.
