HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

8 weeks negative

(1/12) > >>

I have had all the symptoms u can think of and got tested negative at 1week 4 weeks and 8 weeks. my risk was with an hiv + female vaginal insertive 20 minutes no condom still feeling symptoms right now sore throat and itchy dry skin and sinus infection slight thrush what do you guys think 8 weeks - ...i know i have to be retested but this sux ... this girl is a murderer i asked her if she was ok she agreed and then later says she has aids i am going to freak out ...

Don't try to put the blame all on the girl. You were the one that didn't use a condom. You have 5 weeks to go to get your conclusive test results. Always use condoms.


You need to test at three months for a conclusive result, but as the vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks, your eight week negative is unlikely to change. Test again at three months and collect what I fully expect will be another negative result.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection. Sex with 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.

Using condoms is YOUR responsibility.


well what are these symptoms all about can a person have symptoms from an exposure and not get the virus i am so confused ive always been pretty safe with every partner i hsve been with i know this is partialy my fault though this girl did not inform me of her status intill after wards and she said she has herpes also not cool i tested for all stds at 1, 4 , 8 weeks so far all -
i know all the statistics of being infected but do i have a chance?


As for your chances, re-read my first post to you. I already answered that question.

Symptoms or even the lack of symptoms means nothing when it comes to hiv infection. ONLY testing, at the appropriate time, will reliably inform you of your hiv status.

I fully expect you to continue testing negative.
