Hi ,

I am 28 years old Indian male living in India. Please help

Me.

I was staying in north east India for a long , there I met a girl who had multiple sexual partners .

 One day I made a body to body contact with the girl .

I was wearing a cotton half pant (thin)only and the girl wearing nothing , she was lying on me . We were rubbing body to body(front to front). As I was wearing pant I could not feel any direct genital contact.

 Is there any chance to come in contact with the vaginal fluid of the girl ? though the action was apparently dry is there any chance that very less amount of fluid(precum as we were excited) to pass through my pant to come in contact with my penis . I did not use any condom .

Is it a risky behavior ? , Was test required ?

 I had diarrhea for about 4-6 days after 10 weeks of this .

 I did not know the HIV status of the girl.

 I had a HIV test (premarital test) after 15 weeks after the incidence. Result was negative.

I had another test (pre employment) just after completion of 6 months of it . That was also negative. But I did not see the report of 6 month test , I was told verbally " everything is OK " . All the tests done in India .

 As I am going to get married after 1 month, please please please let me know whether I need to test any more? Is 3 month test conclusive? I don’t want to spoile anybody’s life .
I am not being free of anxiety.

 Please tell me if my 3 months test was conclusive and definitive.

My general health is good. I had a kidney stone problem and had PCNL , now I am stone free .
Is it going affect general immunity ?

Sorry for writing long . Actually I read in some site that some are recommended to test for 3 years or so to get definite. Is it the case for me?

Please answer me , otherwise I will not be able to enjoy marriage.

Thanks !

Pallu,

You never had a risk for hiv infection so it's no surprise you tested negative. And no, you do not need further testing. When there has been a risk (you didn't have a risk) a test at three months is conclusive.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult virus to transmit. It is primarily transmitted during unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. You didn't have intercourse. You didn't have a risk.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Hi Ann ,

Thank you very much for your reply ............ So, do you suggest me to cheer up now ?

I have some specific questions ....

What is the official window period declared in India ? as very less clear information available here and often the window period told to be 6 months .

Should I have used condom in the activity mentioned? though it sounds strange ....

Do I need to test beyond 3 months as I am in India ?

I have just read a post here where smbdy got positive result after a negative 6 months back despite of

no risk behavior in between . How is it possible  ???

Is there any possibility of any accidental case in my case ?

Ann has already told you that you weren't at risk. So testing is not necessary in your case. Fears aren't facts and the facts of your situation are that you weren't at risk.

If you had a genuine risk, which you didn't, then testing at 3 months would be sufficient. All that stuff about 6 months and positive from no-risk behavior is just nonsense and has no basis in HIV science.

You are worrying needlessly. Get on with your life and stop all this drama!
