I know this is often asked...

About one year and 9 months ago I had sex with a sex worker in holland as I live there. I was Druk but I well remember I had used a condom. There was penetration ( vaginal) and oral done to me from that Latina woman.  All using the same condom. She ended with a hand job without condom.

I got scared so exaclt after 13 weeks and 2 days I tested for everything and all was clear and negative included HIV, I think they use elisa 3rd generation in Dutch hospitals.

After this risk, I have got twice a massage with a hand job at the end but the worker had her clothes on and was not even naked... Never tested after this .

My wife got pregnant on July last year , so after 8 months of my first risk and 5 months after my HIV test. And she was negative as here they test all pregnant women.

During all this period I got epididymitis. Back pain, geographical tongue. Ulcers in mouth. Eczema on scrotum and groin and face. and sabborhea on face.

Do u think I am HIV  negative?

How sure can I be? I just 2 days ago tapped blood to be tested again and got worried again and again.

I don't remember if the condom was broken because I was drunk.

What if my test now become positive, I will be the first one?

You are worrying unnecessarily. You have reliably tested negative. And that is no surprise because you didn't do anything that put you at risk.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it. And you used a condom for intercourse.

Stop worrying and get on with your life. There is no need for further testing. Really.

Im really sorry to think this, but even if there were cases of HIV+ after a negative 3 months test and then positive after 6 months, this might be deleted from here because it can cause lots of confution to people who are worried to take the 6 months test.

Once again I'm sorry for these thoughts

We do not alter scientific data to fit our perceptions. A test after three months is accurate.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Not only that, but 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.

You do not have hiv. Get over it.

David,

No surprise there - you were already conclusively hiv negative.
