HIV Transmission and Testing > Am I Infected?

SCARED OCD ANXIETY OR HIV

(1/1)

downlow55:
Hello All,
For the last couple of  months I have been scared to death due to me putting myself in  two risks scenerios.
1st scenario
August 3) I went to a gentlemans club where things got excited and I  Fingered the stripper for about 5 minutes, at the same time She pulled my penis out to give me a handjob  as she is about to give me a handjob she starts to get a condom out of her purse then  she said something that I will never forget " she didn't want any of my bodily fluids on her". At that second I freaked out and put my penis away an stoped . I don't remember if I had a cut at that time on my fingers or maybe a few day old cut. I'm I infected ?
2nd scenario
August 5th
I have been having a fling with a coworker for about 4 months ,I have known her for about a year. She is the same age as me 31 yrs old she had been in 8 yr old relationship that she finished about a yr ago, and only has been with her ex sexually in the last eight yrs . One night we were kissing around and went one  step further and I put my penis in for less then 15 i seconds if that then I stoped due to that I had no protection. 
About two weeks later I started to not feel good with nasal drip( I had before my risks) and fatigue. For some reason I was googling and Hiv came up and  since then I have  felt every symptom like diarrhea muscle aches burning eyes, nausea tingling. Thru out August I went to my doctors office to get blood work my results came up with high white blood count  after doing more indeep blood work my white blood count was for neutrophils which fight bacteria or raise due to stress,They gave me antibiotics. I have test my self with the the oraquick antibody home test three times one at 3 weeks one at 5 weeks and one at 7 1/2  weeks all negative,and one hiv 1 home test kit that is with a blood sample at 5 weeks all negative. I have spoken with my coworker about my anxietyand  about hiv and she has even tested her self once with the oraquick test in front of me at eight weeks and tested negative,she really wants to help me get over this,  that she scheduled another appointment to get tested again and currently waiting on results. She is sure that she is negative. After two and half months I still think I'm positive. I have suffered from anxiety and been diagnosed with major ocd for yrs . I'm confused can someone give me advice please. One more thing can my test be inaccurate due to me being on antibiotics for sinus and allergies at time of testing. Since then I had more blood work done and my white blood cells went back to normal. My esr was high but is going down as well. I'm I infected or my is  anxiety causing me to feel sick or my ocd please help!!!

DL,

The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks, 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.

So you need to test at three months for a conclusive negative result, but your negative result is highly unlikely to change.

Given your OCD, I suggest you go to a testing center, clinic or doctor for your final test. Many people seem to distrust the home tests, even though they are conclusive at three months (but not before).

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!

Wish someone can help me with some replies . Still scared :/

Ann:
DL,

There is nothing to add to the reply you've already been given, so re-read your thread.

You are highly unlikely to go on to test positive following the negative results you've already had. Test at three months for a conclusive negative result.
