Help anyone!
« on: October 29, 2012, 08:24:32 PM »
Hello forumers,
I had an exposure with a lady 78 days ago. It was a protected sex with condom. What worries me is that during the exposure, after i finished, i found out that she is having menstrual. there was blood on my pelvic. i rushed to the shower and washed it. im afraid that the blood contact my urethera. Test elisa on 6 weeks (dont know which generation) after the exposure. The result says Anti hiv 1&2 non reactive. Again yesterday took the same test at 11 weeks (77 days). Expecting the result tommorrow. My question:
1. Is my result conclusive? Should i move on?
2. My risk is low, right?
3. What elisa generation did i take? Its a lab with blood sample. I had to wait for 2 days for the result.
I know symptom explain nothing. But i had sore throat last couples day (day 76 to 78). Due anxiety i had less sleep thus make me feel tired.

Please help me... Im worried... :(

The situation as you described it poses absolutely NO risk for HIV.

Continue to use a condom for penetrative anal and vaginal sex, and you will avoid HIV.

It's really that simple.

"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."

Praying isn't going to make the slightest bit of difference to your NO RISK situation.
