HIV results
« on: February 12, 2010, 12:28:43 AM »
Hello everyone I
am posting here because I do not know
my HIV status. I have been haveing some diarrah not alot but more then
normal. Also have mucas in the stool.I have never been tested pretty dumb on
my part. I
have been with
my
girlfreind for 3 years she
was tested before we met she was clean. We have a little girl one and a half years old and
have a second one on the way I thought they tested her before we had my daughter
but I don't think they did I am going to make my  self I don't want to give it to my baby
I am so scared I always have been but I know now that not knowing is much worse. I think what
u guys do is so great . I was wondering are the spmtoms I talked about HIV related.  I know testing is the only way to know. There is a place that does 30 min testing no blood is that relibale. Thank you for your time god bless you all. Sdguy619

Sd,

For a start, using the word "clean" to describe someone's hiv status is highly insulting to those of us who are hiv positive. I'm poz, and I'm clean, thank you very much. A person is hiv positive or hiv negative, not clean or dirty.

If your girlfriend is the only woman you've had unprotected intercourse with, then how would you be hiv positive? If you've had unprotected intercourse with anyone else, then yes, you should test. As for infecting your baby, the only way that's going to happen is if you're having unprotected intercourse with the baby. That's how hiv is spread. It's not spread by being in the same room with someone positive and it's not spread by having close contact with someone who is positive. Sounds like you need to read our Transmission Lesson found in our Welcome Thread  that you should have read before posting.

I haven't a clue why on earth you would think having diarrhea means you have hiv. There are thousands of things that can cause diarrhea. Go see your doctor and get it checked out. From what you've told us, it's highly unlikely to have anything to do with hiv.

Hello Ann and everyone who reads my post I am so sorry for putting it the way I did by
saying that my girlfriend was clean. I meant no disrespect . I understand what ur saying.
I have had unprotected sex before me and my girlfriend got together. I have been so scared to get
tested. That's why I was worried about my baby because I know the mom can give it to the baby.
I am going to get tested because i know geting tested is smart and the only way to know and
after doing research I know it is a cronic illniss. And not a death sentance anymore.  Hey Ann is the 30 min HIV test where there is no blood drawn reliable? Thanks again . God bless you all for what u do. :)

OK. So you know you have to get tested. The swab test is an approved test.

Good luck with your result and keep us posted.

Ejaculating in the receptive partner  is not a greater risk to the person who is ejaculating. The risk is to the receptive partner.

Hey Andy thank you for the quick response what I meant is if the person u slept with was HIV postive and u cum in them does that give u a bigger chance of geting infected  then if u didn't cum in your partner . I will let u know my results when I get them thanks again. How long does the blood test take to come back.

You can't delete your profile. What you do now is simply stop posting. :)

Also please stop creating new threads. You should keep all your posts in your original thread.

sd,

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. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

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.



Yes, the rapid tests are reliable. You are reliably and conclusively hiv negative.

Make sure you use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse if you go outside your current relationship, or if you find yourself in a new relationship in future. Do this and you will remain hiv negative.

We don't delete profiles. I'm afraid you're stuck with us and visa-versa. As Matty said, just stop posting to your thread and it will sink into the archives.

Ann
