Dank,

You were never at risk. (as you've been told at MedHelp - the doc there went into details and I'm not going to waste my time repeating them) You never needed to test over this in the first place.

You do not need further testing. You do not have hiv. Your result is conclusive.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor in person, not on the internet. Whatever is going on with you has NOTHING to do with hiv. You do not have hiv.

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

The average time to seroconversion is 22 days. All but the very smallest number of those who are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after an exposure.

Anyone who tests negative at 6 weeks is extremely unlikely to receive other than another negative result for a conclusive answer at 13 weeks.

Dank,

It would be rare in the extreme for it to occur after six weeks.

But you're not getting what we're telling you. You are NOT going to experience ARS as you did NOT have a risk! You were first told this on July 5th in another forum. Yes, I found your posts when I was vetting your account when you applied for membership here.

It's time you gave this irrational fear a rest. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection and it doesn't matter that you had a nick on your nuts or shaving rash on your stash. NO RISK.

If you cannot put this irrational fear behind you, perhaps it's time you sought the help of a counselor. We cannot help you with that here.

Stop worrying.  The results are extremely reliable.  If you want to entertain yourself for a little bit, here's a paper that gives the details.  Of course, as others have said, there's no reason for you to doubt the results since you didn't actually have a risk.

Dank,

You want to know? Then try paying attention to what you've been told both here and at MedHelp.

You did not have a risk for hiv infection.

Your six week negative is NOT going to change.

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV.

I'm giving yoiu that time out you've been warned about. Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.
