Some questions ?
« on: November 05, 2013, 08:09:45 PM »
First of all i would like to thanks all moderator and admin of this forum : ann andy jeff g , rapidrod
I read many topics but i will ask my questions any way
I m a 33 gay man , 5 days ago i was in a gay club , i met a a man , he proposed to go home with him and we did , before doing sex he told me that he is hiv+ and he did not get any traitment , he was honnest , i was drunk i did not evaluate the risk , so we kissed a lot deep kiss hard act, then i recived a bj , after that he licked my body and anus for may be 15 min , i felt his pre cum on my legs many times , i licked his body and anus and balls but i did not gave him a bj,  , at last i frotted my dick on his anus hardly but without any penetration , then we masturbate jerk off i felt his cum on my hand and body ,
When i come back home and got my shower i felt a horrible fear , i m a body -combat trainer and i have always many cuts on my body due to my activity , even in my mouth they could be some cuts , and i dońt know if he has cuts on his body or mouth i was affraid to death , i even could not move from bed for 2 days, i did not went for pep , i ve seen a psy doctor who told me that i m in major depression and put me on anti depression tratment , and told me to try to bel calm till 28 days to do a test ,
My questions are
1-What is the level of my risk especaily that this man is a confirmed hiv postive and he did not got any treatlent ,
2-Is getting some tratment like anti depression drug , i get protiens too for my sport activity can affect the apperance of the antibodies or change the test result
3-Is 1 mounth engouh to get a good indication my doctor tell me that an antibodies test +agp 24 could give a very good indication from 21 days only
I want to know all your point of view because i have only the right of 3 post and i want to keep it to tell you the result of my test
I m really in a very bad situation i even asked for 1 mounth holidays from my job because i cant do anything
At last sorry for my bad english because it is not my native language

You can relax . There is not one single thing you did that was a risk for HIV , nothing .

Its safe to put this behind you now and move on . I read your concerns very carefully and I am absolutely confident you did not and could not have contracted HIV in your encounter .

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV .

You do not need to test for HIV if this is your only concern but if you wish to do so you can test for peace of mind at 6 weeks past your concern and again at 3 months to confirm the results .

If you had a risk I would tell you right away so that you could test and get treatment or even prevent another infection ... but there is no need because you could not get HIV in the manner you are worried over .

Charman, fears aren't facts. And none of the facts in your story show you having done anything that put you at risk for HIV. Read it again: NO RISK!

You are working yourself into a state without any basis in HIV science. There's no need for testing. If your symptoms persist you should discuss them again with your doctor. Theyhave nothing to do with HIV. Really.

For now and the future you need to know that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it. Period.

Hi again
This is my last post
6week after my (exposure) yesterday i get tested i was negative , i was very happy but
While comming back to home a very black idea comes to mind i told to my self that the man who get the blood from me in the lab has used an already used needle
I was paranormal , i found my self in hesteric situation , my body trembling , i Was in my appart i opend the window and tried to suicide , then for a moment i told to my self that itīs not a solution , that 6 weeks was very hard to live , with no eating and no sleeping , i even stoped my job , i cańt support to live other 6 weeks again like this, i dońt know what is happning to me , it īs very strange , i was face to face with death for a moment , i know that may be you will not belive me but thatīs the truth
I really dońt know what to do ?
If we suppose that the needle was used for another positive person have i a chance to not been infected ?, i know that you will tell me thatīs not possible because they use new needles , but just i want an answer (if we suppose so) thanks again for your big heart and you good support
And sorry for my bad english
I love u all

Charman , I have empathy for you and I'm sorry you are upset but HIV is not your problem . A therapist or mental health provider are better suited to advise you than we can . You did not have a risk to begin with and now you think a medical professional gave you HIV . You have a HIV phobia and we cant help you with that .

Please get the help you need outside of this forum and please do not buy a subscription to ask more questions , I wish we could but we cant help . I'm wishing you the best of luck .
