None of the activities you are reporting have put you at risk for HIV. As far as giving oral, your saliva has over a dozen elements and proteins which very effectively prevent the transmission of viable HIV.

We do advise anyone who is sexually active that getting a full STD panel done at least once a year is a good idea because other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV.

This time as far as HIV is concerned you have no cause for concern nor any need for testing.

You have been told that you never had an HIV risk from oral sex which means any symptoms you have has nothing to do with HIV.

Instead of getting more into an uproar over your non-risk, you should be discussing your symptoms with your doctor.

They have nothing to do with HIV except in your mind.

■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.

You never had an exposure. It's time for you to move along.

There is no need for further testing. You were never at risk to begin with as you have been told several times.

If you choose to re-test at 13 weeks it is strictly for your peace of mind. Getting another negative result is a slam dunk for you if you re-test, but it's really unnecessary. Period.

Stop the drama and get on with your life.

OK. That's a happy result of course if not unexpected, at least here.

Whatever your medical concern maybe, it has nothing to do with HIV.

Leo,

We cannot possibly fathom why your clinic is still operating on old, outdated information. The window period for hiv testing has been three months for years now.

You never had a risk in the first place. You certainly do not need to keep testing over this no risk incident. You do NOT have hiv!

If you continue to come back here to question your conclusive negative result, you WILL be given that time out Rodney warned you about.
