What,

The window period for a conclusive hiv test result is three months. You have tested negative far outside that window period. You are conclusively hiv negative.

You do NOT have hiv.

As the insertive partner, you were never likely to end up positive over a condom break anyway. It's not surprising you tested negative.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED FURTHER HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.



If you continue to feel unwell, see a doctor. Whatever is going on has NOTHING to do with hiv.

You are conclusively hiv negative. You do NOT have hiv!!!

Protect your negative status going forward and make sure you're using condoms correctly. A correctly used condom rarely breaks.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

What,

As I told you several times - NO YOU DO NOT NEED FURTHER TESTING. The window period is three months. Why would you need further testing when you are already CONCLUSIVELY HIV NEGATIVE?

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV.

What,

1. If you feel unwell, see a doctor. You have conclusively ruled hiv OUT of the picture.

There are thousands of other bugs out there that could be causing your symptoms. Go to a doctor to find out which bug you have. Hiv is NOT the cause of your problems.

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV!!!

2. The window period has been at three months for several years now. I have no idea why some websites insist on carrying OUTDATED information. It beats the hell out of me.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

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.


Please consider yourself warned!

Have you not read Ann's replies? YOU are HIV NEGATIVE.

You are HIV negative. There is absolutely no need for further testing. Cut out the drama and get on with your life.

And now to ensure that you won't returns for at least 28 days I am going to give you the time out you were warned about. Don't make the mistake of trying to get around it by creating a new name here. We'll spot that right off and it would get you permanently banned.

Now cut out the unnecessary drama and get on with your life. Really.

Who cares about symptoms? We don't.

We care about risk factors. YOU didn't have any.

This is not an HIV situation in any manner.

The risk was not "very low"

The risk was essentially ZERO

You do not get HIV through latex. It's not scientifically possible.

You do not have HIV, and I feel I speak for all moderators here when I say that we will not be kindly subjected to your hysterics over your actions.

You will not be allowed to use this forum to wring your hands over your behaviour. Nothing you did put you at ANY risk for HIV.

What you did was actually above and BEYOND the safer sex practices used by those of us in serodiscordant relationships.

If you choose to believe that HIV is an otherwordly punishment for sins, so be it. You will not use this forum to do so.

I will personally monitor and report any further correspondence to the appropriate moderating staff.

You don't seem to be listening to what is said to you. You never had a risk to begin with so testing was totally unnecessary. Given that nothing you did put you at risk for HIV, it's not surprising that you tested negative.

Cut it out and get on with your life. If you come back with more of this unwarranted drama you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out for 56 days this time or a permanent ban from the site.
