very worried/ Please help
« Reply #50 on: July 03, 2006, 10:08:57 PM »
By the way is been almost 5 weeks since my last exposure and im more worried than ever and i dont know why. I have not had any symptoms whatsoever and i recently talked to the person i had sex with. and i asked her one more time of her hiv status this was like the six time i asked her because i finally got to talk to her in the messenger and  we talked about it she was very mad because she told me that she was tired of me asking her the same thing over and over again. What she said was that she was hiv negative that she tests aevery six months at her company . she said they make her take tests. Now i have never heard of any company making their workers test for hiv. Do you guys? she said it was the guys that transports disable and old people to hospitals but arent those people EMT's if im not mistaken/ I am worried that maybe she was lying to me or maybe she just simply dont know what is her hiv status even though she said she tested negative four months ago and that she will test again in two more months. im goignt crazy over this window period and now this guys shows up saying that he is positive and making all kinds of comments over his status. Man im scare that God is going to punish me for doing what i idid and that this person i had sex is lying or simply does not know what is her status eventhough she says she is completely sure she is negative and that she never has intercourse without condom but as you might remember she sucked me of without a condom and threw the semen in the kitchen and washed her mouth.. I dont know what to think now but im driving myself nuts is been 5 weeks and have had no symptoms becasue i have been trying to keep myself calm but now i just went off and cant rest i dont work out anymore i couldnt eat today man i have talked to my psyciatrist and he has been helping me in going thorugh this window period but i no longer can go without talking to a real expert on hiv.. I cant test at 6 or 8 weeks because im scare that i might come up positvie or a false positive test and i cant wait to have the 13 weeks test i dont know what to do .

San, you are looking to fuel your fears. I suggest you look elsewhere. Our advice, recommendations, and risk assessment are immune to supposition and obsolete/misapplied statistics. We use the most current first tiered peer reviewed scientifically quantified data to form our collective risk assessment and lessons.

I submit that this forum is toxic to you, and that the fears you so eloquently articulate are far beyond aidsmeds.com's ability to address. I certainly hope you get the help you need.

BTW, do you think that those of us who are positive have been punished by God? It's a remarkably offensive point of view, you know.

Very New 2 this only knowing that I am + 4 going on 2 weeks and don't recall ever having any symptoms during the window of time when I must have been infected.  But 4 what it's worth in the paperwork they gave me it says that the process may take anywhere from 3-12 weeks and that 99% of us will seroconvert within 6months

Hope it helps and that U start 2 feel better VERY VERY SOON

I respectfully withdraw from further conversation, except to say that trawling the LIVING WITH forum creates an atmophere of fear in this forum, and it intimidates those looking for HIV support from discussing their siituations, for fear of being quoted out of context.

I am disgusted by this behavior online tonight.

i apologyze from late comments i promise it will not happened again well.
i got something new for you guys i just got home from work and i was talking to one of my coworkers whos actually a good friend of mine well. He was telling me all about his sexual experience with a white girl (he is black) and he was telling they did ectasis and that they went back to her place and that she was rich and that he fell in love with her.( wow in a couple of hours that was fast) well what surprised me was and made realized why is it that people is being infected every year and every minute is that he was telling he never used a condom with her because she was rich and she was white. and i was like WHAT!!!!! are you crazy man!!! i told him im freaking out because i had sex with a girl and the condom broke ( i cant tellhim it was a transsexual come on now. that is already messing with my manhood and if i tell him that is going to kill me)( im still trying to get over it and convince myself that what i did was not gay and it was a one mistake that never will happen again) anyways i told him that and he was like : look man once u get it you dont have to wrry about getting it anymore you already have it and i was like wow!!! i cant belive this guy is so cool about getting hiv he dont even care so i see now why people is getting it and then hit themselves on the chest and say why me why me welll thats why at least i tried to protect myself and eventhough is not sure that i got cause i have been talking to her and she keeps saying she doesnt have it i might have  a pretty good chance of not having it but then again we never know.. well i just felt like telling you this story   
so you guys know why people keep coming over here asking dumb questions like mines well at least i tried to protect myself and i cant belive the thing broke but anyways i hope you guys are not mad at me im more calm now i dont know why i guess is because i talked to the ts girl i had sex with and she says she is 100 percent sure she is negative but i dont know if i should believe her or not because i think she is just assuming that she doesnt have it she says she has tested before at her company but i have never heard of companies making their associate test for hiv syphilis or other things she says that if she doesnt do it then they will let her go but doesnt that violate the right of privacy well thats why i dont believe her . eventhough she gets mad at me and tell me that she is tired of me asking her the same questions over and over again ok i think this is unnesesary right? sorry  ok i have to take a test either on the 25 of august which is 12 weeks and 1 day for me or at 30 of august when it will 13 weeks for me from last exposure wish me luck guys

san,

This is getting beyond a joke. You say you "can't help" your behaviour but if you are old enough to be having intercourse then you are old enough to start taking control of your behaviour.

You're freaking out over a tiny, tiny, minor risk. You yourself admit that the broken condom still covered the head of your penis and what's more, you also admitted that you aren't even sure if you even entered her. In my book, that's not even a risk at all. None of it. The head of your penis was covered and infection could NOT have taken place.

This is more about your feelings concerning your sexuality than it is about hiv. You had sex with a transexual. Get over it. One event doesn't make you gay and anyway, what's wrong with being gay? This forum is not the place for you to wring your hands over your sexuality. It's offensive as it has heavy homophobic overtones.

You are getting very close to being given a time out, window period or no window period.

Ann

Hell experts my apologies from earlier. i am more calm now and really sorry for earlier. i have a question is not about me anymore, now im worry that one of my family member could be infected. i want to ask you something my dad had a tattoe redone about six years ago he has never tested for hiv or other std i think. but  he has a tattoe on his chest. with my mom's name i want to know something is been six years since he had it done in argentina by a drug user and i was there when they were doing it and i remember well that my dad was bleeding but i cant remember if the guy changed the needle as i recall that he was stone or drugged and my dad was drunk i remember well . Now im very scare that maybe my dad has it is been six years since then. He has never been very sick. what are the chances of him being infected with the virus and not showing any kind of symptoms or weak inmune system after six years or more. i am very worry now about him he is my dad and i dont want him to die. like i said before he has never shown any sign of weakness in his inmune system he has always been very healthy really hard for him to get sick if not rarely has had the flu many times without complications  and has had his tonsils swollen before and gets a infection in his tonsils like once every two years but that he has had since before that happened and also i have it i get it too and i have tested hiv negative two times and with exposures so could it be possible for him to be inefected with it and yet not shown any symptoms i want to say that i work in a prison im a prison guard and there are many hiv positive males that after they get infected they die within two years even the ones that are on medications. Also my dad has not lost weight he still the same so what do you think could he be infected or not?

I am extremely sorry but i have to ask. i see you guys keep saying hiv is a fragilie virus difficult to transmit but if this was true how is it that so many people has become infected with the virus already and many more are still getting infected. sharing needles i know that is just like  putting a gun to your head and shooting yourself but in the sex scenerio? And it seems to me that is more likely for a man to transmitt the virus to someone than to someone to transmit it to a man unless of course the man is being used per say.
Well these are my stupid question for today so thanks if anyone of you respond. Oh yeah by the way wish me luck just two more weeks and ill be having an hiv test done plus a check up on other std's thank you for your prayings that is if you are praying for me of course\
bye bye!!!!

San,

There is one very good reason why hiv is infecting so many - many people do not use condoms.

Lots of people think they are not in one of the so called risk groups and therefore, they think hiv is something that will never touch them. Sometimes drugs and/or alcohol is involved and people get reckless under the influence and don't bother with condoms. Some people don't bother with condoms at all, stoned OR sober.

The bottom line that many do not believe applies to them is - use condoms and avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Ann,

  I have to confess that now that you have said that i am scare to go take a test because a broken condom is just the same as not using a condom, i know i have to but im scare i really cannot wait till september the frist to take a test so i am doing on the fourth of august which will 9 weeks and 2 days for me so if i am negative after 9 weeks could i have good chances of being negative if the test is negative i  am still taking another onseptember but im taking on august for a peace of mind so any advice

San,

A broken condom is NOT the same as using no condom at all.  Until a condom breaks, you are protected.  Now, if you were to continue having sex well past a condom break, that's a different story.

Time to move on with life and put your "brush with fate" behind you.

As Ann said, use condoms for penetrative sex and you will avoid hiv infection.

San,

After all this time and you still haven't bothered to read the Welcome thread? I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

From what you report, there is more like a 99% chance you DON'T have it. With or without PEP, hiv infection through occupational needle stick injury is quite rare.
