Hi Luk,

You don't need to test so many times. The CDC recommends testing at 13 weeks after the most recent unprotected incident.

The average time to seroconversion is 22 days. All but the smallest number of those who are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after an exposure. If you test negative at 6 weeks you are likely to continue to test negative.

HIV is not an easy virus to transmit. It is significantly harder to accomplish from female to male. Given this was a single possible exposure, the odds are in your favor that you will test negative.

You do need to learn from this experience. Low risk is not the same as no risk and everytime you have unprotected intercourse you are putting your life at risk. It's a simple and as stark as that.

You can have all the sex you want including with someone who's HIV+. You just need to make sure you are using a latex condom everytime. No exceptions. It doesn't matter what you thnk you know about the person's history or how great they look or anything else. A condom is a must.

Good luck with your test.
