acer,

You do not need further testing because you have not had a risk for hiv infection.

Giving a woman oral sex is not a risk for hiv infection.

Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection.

Protected intercourse is just that, protected. It is not a risk for hiv infection.

You do not need further testing. You do not have hiv.

acer,

The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks, with the average time to seroconversion being only 22 days. A six week (or more) negative result is highly unlikely to change, but must be confirmed at the three month point.

It sounds to me like you did you a condom and therefore did NOT have a risk, if you wish you can test again at the three month point. I do not expect your negative result to change if you do decide to continue testing.

Acer, I've merged your threads here. In the future please follow our rule and keep all of your entries in this same thread.

And no, smoking weed will not affect the accuracy of your HIV test results nor the development of antibodies if you were infected.

You're welcome. Right now you don't need any further testing as your HIV negative.

You can keep it that way by always making sure that you always without exception make sure that condoms are used for vaginal and anal intercourse. No exceptions.

Good luck to you.

No, taking Flagyl would not affect the accuracy of your test result. You are HIV negative. Period.

Of course as you were told before and continue to ignore, you never needed to test in the first place because you didn't have a risk. In any case, Flagyl would not affect your test accuracy.

Give it up and get on with your life. If you continue to return here about a non-risk incident, I need to warn you that you  will get a Time Out from the site for at least 4 weeks.

HIV is not your problem and if you always use condoms for vaginal and anal intercourse, you will be well protected against the sexual transmission of HIV. It really is just that simple.

Thanks Andy.Sorry i stop asking questions anymore.Just everything that i read and have a bit common with it make me really crazy.I think that i may have some problems with my mind and try to fix it with sporting and working.But my last 3 months was really hell for me and i became very paranoid about hiv.I try to became the old man that i was-smile,humoristic,and energetic.Hope not to have need to visit a specialist to fix my mind.

Stop the reading! There's a lot of inaccurate and scary not-for-real information on the web and eslewhere. We've given you the basics you need to know about to protect yourself from the sexual transmission of HIV.

Keep it simple, use condoms and get on with your life. Period.
