Regret,

The only risk you had was the broken condom, but you're going to come out of this ok.

The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks (42 days), with the average time to seroconversion being only 22 days.

A six week (or more) negative is highly unlikely to change, but must be confirmed at the three month point.

I do not expect your 45 day negative result to change, but you do need to confirm at three months.

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

Regret,

No, it doesn't matter how many partners you've had in the past. Hiv isn't a punishment for having sex you know.

You're highly unlikely to go on to test hiv positive after a 45 day negative regardless of your details.

Water bottle? Food sharing?

Unless those are euphemisms for penetrative anal and vaginal sex, there's absolutely no risk for HIV in those things. It's a sexually transmitted disease, after all.

What you are describing is NOT at all indicative of ARS, whose symptoms are more generalized and flu-like - and then go away.

I have no reason to think you will seroconvert due to the situation as you have described it.

"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."
