hi ann you said that by next year the 3 month widow period would ended to 6 week and is that for the 3rd genetration elisa test also.

Scared,

I never said anything of the sort. I said I expect the window period to fall sometime in the next several years, not next year. Until such time, the window period remains at three months, no matter what generation or type of antibody test is used.

scared,

Hiv is very fragile. The membrane that surrounds it becomes damaged very quickly by changes in temperature, moisture content and/or pH levels. When hiv becomes damaged, it CANNOT infect.

As you have been told repeatedly, getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection, no matter what sort of spin you can think of to put on it. You weren't at risk through a blowjob.

If you read the Welcome thread like you're supposed to, you would have read this:

Quote
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Please consider yourself warned.

Re-read Ann's comments above about the fragility of HIV.

Mutual masturbation is NOT a risk for transmission. There are no confirmed cases of transmission in this manner. You won't make history by becoming the first.

You need to get on with your life.

scared,

If your test wasn't negative, they wouldn't have told you it was negative. They are in the business of diagnosing hiv, not ignoring it.

You didn't have a risk and it's no surprise that you tested negative. You don't have hiv and you do not need further testing.

And PS - learn some patience!

Well guess what? Your symptoms weren't related to HIV. You didn't have a risk and you have received a negative result which proves it.

scared,

I see no point in continuing on with this. You aren't listening to a single thing we say. You didn't have a risk. An itchy rash has nothing to do with hiv. You tested negative. You ARE hiv negative. You do not have hiv.

I'm giving you that four week time out you've been repeatedly warned about. This is to encourage you to seek some face-to-face counseling to learn how to deal with your anxiety. We cannot help you with that here.

Do not create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, I will know and you will be banned permanently, no questions asked.
