Same old question-oral sex-scared
« on: December 28, 2009, 05:07:44 PM »
Back in July I decided to get oral sex from stripper in which some blood was present in the condom. The next day I begin to feel tired and weak. The next week my tongue was coated white and I started to get chills. Also my hands and feet seem to be extra red. My stool have always been loose since this incident. I have had the following tests but still a little scared. I also had my wife to take a test at 5 months rapid which was negative.
2 weeks- full panel STD - all negtive

7 week rapid antibody- negative

10 week - gave blood(they asked me to donate again because of my blood type) I know it was wrong but desperate

13 week rapid antibody- negative

15 week ELISA, DNA pcr <50, and complimentaury western blot through labcorp- all negative

21 week rapid antibody- negative and also wife took one and it was negative.

With alll that testing I should be good but can't seem to kick this. I am fining to take the 6 month test to confirm this.

Questions
1. Has anyone you know turned positive after a five month negative.
2. Should I take the 6 month test
3. My wife fingertips are so dry that they split sometimes- is that something that happen in HIV.
4. Is there any possibilty that I could still have HIV
5. Is there anything else to guarantee I am not infected
I am really a mess right now and don't know what to do. Please help

You never had a risk of contracting HIV from oral sex.

You have been wasting a lot of emotional energy and money on HIV tests. There's not a chance in the world that you were infected by getting a blowjob. It's one of the most common of sexual acts and in the entire history of the epidemic there has not been even one confirmed case of transmission in that manner.

It's safe to say that you aren't going to make history by becoming the first to have that happen.

Whatever is going on has absolutely nothing to do with HIV. If you and your wife are having physical problems you should be discussing them with your doctors.

This is not an HIV situation. Period. End of story. Get on with your life.

Even if there was blood in The person mouth and the condom broke would their still be no risk situation? I'm just wondering because I still have this white tongue and also stiff neck as if my lump modes are swollen.

Scared,

Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection, no matter what details you want to add.

You can continue to test all you like, but your results are not going to change. You do not have hiv.

However, you will not be permitted to continue to post here over your no risk, conclusive negative situation. If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

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.


Please consider yourself warned!

I just wanted some education on hiv. is it true that some people will never have detectable antibodies even if they are not on meds.

Scared,

No, but it is true that some people may have an undetectable viral load while not on meds, but a viral load and antibodies are two completely different things. If you have hiv, you will test hiv antibody positive, usually from somewhere between four and six weeks post exposure.

But you didn't have an exposure and you didn't have a risk. You're worrying needlessly.
