Hello!

Nothing you described here is in ANY WAY a risk for HIV.

HIV is very fragile and can ONLY be sexually transmitted inside the body during unprotected anal and vaginal intercourse.

You can take your eight week negative as definitive. You did not have a risk at all for HIV.

However, other STDs can (and are) transmitted through oral sex and rimming (along with parasites and Hepatitis). Instead of taking a single HIV test it would be in your best interest to get a full STD panel at least twice a year as long as you are not in a mutually monogamous relationship.

"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."

In the ten plus years I have been answering questions and doing risk assessment on these forums I have yet to see a six-week negative end up positive.

But that doesn't really matter here, because you did not have a risk. It really IS as simple as wearing a condom for penetrative anal and vaginal sex. Period.

Berk,

You didn't have a risk, so unless you've been having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse that you neglected to tell us about, you are conclusively hiv negative.

However, if seeing a negative twelve week result is the only way you're going to be able to put this behind you, go test, collect your negative result, and move on with your life.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. 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
