Sad,

I removed your post from someone else's thread, renamed it and placed it into your own thread, which is the ONLY place you should post from now on.

1. Protected intercourse is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection. There have been three long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one.

2. The ONLY blood test that will show whether or not you have hiv is an hiv antibody test. Your hiv antibody tests have come back with negative results because you do NOT have hiv. You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.

3. You and your girlfriend should only have unprotected intercourse if you have BOTH had negative hiv (and other STI) test results. For all you know, she may have hiv and just not know it.

4. You do not have hiv.

5. NO. Anyone can get pneumothorax. It's a condition with many different causes.

6. You do not have hiv therefore you do not have aids.

7. You only need to test again if you need to see another negative result for peace of mind or if it's part of a regular, routine sexual health check up.

You do not have hiv!

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.

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. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

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