hiv -- possible infection
« on: October 01, 2012, 07:17:13 PM »

Hello people: For the last year and a half, I've been in a committed relationship with another man, who recently discovered was HIV positive. He immediately told me. We've always had safe sex, with only one exception: oral sex (he frequently ejaculated into-and-all-over my mouth, I generally swallowed). He is a healthy man, and got tested as a requisite for dental surgery (what I mean to say is, he doesn't have AIDS). The last time he "came" inside my mouth was 6 weeks before I took the test. I believe if I had been infected the past year and a half, it would have shown. I don't have herpes or lesions in my mouth, that I know of, but I do have dental braces and I'm told they cause micro-lesions. We both went to the RED CROSS, and got tested. His results were, again, HIV positive. My results were negative (it was Elisa, third generation). So this is my question: Is it possible I'm infected with HIV? If the last time I was exposed was 6 weeks ago, would it have shown in my test...third generation elisa?

mcbo,

You can either post in the Spanish forum, or you can post here. I removed your post in the Spanish forum because you posted here first. You need to stay here. The only exception would be if you remain in this relationship; then you may post in the Someone I Care About forum.

Yes, if you were hiv positive, your test would have been positive by six weeks. Giving oral isn't a true risk anyway, unless you've got terrible oral health.

Keep using those condoms for anal intercourse with your man (and anyone else) and you will continue to test hiv negative. It really is that simple!!!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
