You never had an exposure and you do not need testing. Whatever is causing your symptoms has nothing to do with HIV.

thank you rod for easing my worried. it Worth a lot to me. there is one more thing i want to confirm. i.e from one of the site i came across how to count our cd4 and cd c8 if i know my total WBC and % of lymphocytes it goes like this :
Total Count as reported is 8000 cells/ccm .
Differential count - Lmphocyte is 30%
Therefore the absolute lymphocyte count is 30% of 8000 = 2400 cells (lymph)
Of the Lymphocytes 80% are T cell % while 20% are B Cell .
Thus 80% of 2400 = 1920 (T cell) and 20% of 2400 = 480 (B Cell)
Of the total T Cell - 60% are T4 cells ------CD4 Cells.
Therefore 60% of 1920 = 1152 cells are CD4
Of the total T Cell - 30% are T8 cells ------CD8 Cells
Therefore 30% of 1920 = 576 cells are CD8
so as per my recent blood test for hypertension taken on 19th dec my total WBC is 6900 per CU.mm. and my lymphocytes is 30% so it means my CD4 count is 993.6. does it means that i m not infected right?

You did not have a risk so naturally you were not infected in this incident .

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME for this incident , 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 STDs 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!

You had protected sex so quit worrying that you were infected with HIV that way, it did not happen and you can safely move on now .
