Oraquick Advanced-Finger prick vs oral fluid
« on: February 27, 2007, 05:01:31 PM »
Dear All Great Forum Members

I was getting oral sex from a man who just finished blowing someone else. It didn't last more than 10 seconds, but I am afriad there might have been sperm or precum in his mouth from the last perosn. However, two weeks later, I developed a rash which started on my left cheek, with extremely small blisters, which I opened up when I accidentally shaved over them. It then swelled, and my skin became hard and thickened. Then, a few days later, the rash spread to my ear lobes, right cheek, eyelids, and forehead, and eventually to my neck, all which went away in about 1.5 weeks. I went to the doctor three times, they couldn't tell what it was. They said it could be a viral or contact dermatitis. There also was no fever present, and I always felt fine, despite a few headaches. This is just too much of a coincidence.

I took an Abbott Determine Rapid Test at 6 weeks, 11 weeks, and 15 weeks, all negative. I know this test is widely used all over Europe, but not in the US, where Oraquick is the preferred rapid test. The doctor told me this test is probably the best rapid test available, but why is it not FDA approved then? I don't want to test again, but there is this huge grey cloud hanging over me. Could it be possible that I am a late seroconverter (I don't do drugs, smoke, drink at all). And if my rash was due to ARS, doesn't it mean that antibodies were developing already, and I would have tested positive. Also, is it possible that the Rapid Test detects antibodies much later than laboratory based tests? Are all HIV antibodies the same, or are antibodies different in each person, resulting in negative tests when in fact the person is positive?

Please give me a detailed answer people.....I love you all very much.

Pour on all the details you want to and it still comes down to this one fact: In the entire 25 year history of the HIV epidemic and uncounted billions of blowjobs later, there's never been a single documented case of transmission to someone via getting a blowjob.

What is "theoretically possible" simply hasn't happened in real life so it's safe to say you aren't going to make history by becoming the first.

If you have persistent symptoms you need to discuss them with your doctor.

You also should read the lesson about Transmission. There's a link to it in the Welcome thread which opens this section.

There's no need for HIV testing. However, other STDs are much easier to acquire so if you're sexually active it's a good idea to have a full STD panel done at least annually and every six months is even better.

Dear Andy,

Many people in the "I just tested Poz" forum seem to have positive tests not only after 3 months from what they considered to be their highest risk, but also got it through oral sex. What do you make of this.

You can certainly test transmission science. You dont get HIV from getting fellatio.

To humor you, I took a peek at this link you offered.  Until I remembered this other thing:


You DON'T GET HIV from RECEIVING oral sex.  So all this speculation about delayed conversion or whatever is moot anyway in your situation.

Think about it....in my case...its very possible to get HIV....if there was cum in the guy's mouth who blew me from the previous person, then I could have been infected very easily. It's logic. I think you guys just think that Insertive Oral Sex is no risk, when in fact, this is a very possible mode of transmission in my case. I feel like if someone wrote saying they received a blowjob from someone who was bleeding a lot in their mouth, you would also reply "no risk from insertive oral". Your answer is one size fits all, which is terrible.

Baby, what is it you want here? You've been told what we know from experience and the HIV science of the epidemic for a quarter century.

But you know better? OK. Do you want us to agree with you even when we know there wasn't a risk for transmission from getting a blowjob? You tested negative at 15 weeks. And for something which really didn't even require a test. And on top of that now you're insisting it's possible you're STILL HIV positive and the test is wrong?

Would you feel better if we said, "Gee, you're right. It is possible." And join you in your worrying? And agree that "Gee, you're right. You're going to be the first person who ever got infected from receiving a blowjob. You're going to make history." Would that make you feel better? Oh yeah, and your test result is wrong too.

We can only tell you what we know. You can do with that information what you will.

That link to Madbrains post you read clearly states that he is not sure when he seroconverted, but only what he speculates.  Even though he thinks it came from oral doesn't make it so.  All debate aside about blowjobs--you had a negative HIV test at 15 weeks---that is a conclusive negative.  You do not have HIV.  I don't care how many spins you want to put on it or when you have a rash--it isn't HIV.  Do you realize how many multiple things can cause a rash?  Do you realize that your rash may not even be related, but that you are relating the events in your head?  If you are still having problems, work with your doctor.  If you continue to chase a disease you do not have, then really you need a mental health professional to work out your issues.

You could have gotten a rash from a multitude of reasons.  Including somethin unrelated to HIV from the guy who blew you.  You are negative.

I think its absolute horse pucky that there is not one documented case of HIV from receiving oral sex. There is, its just that the CDC automatically assumes the person probably got it from another higher risk activity, so they just report it as anecdotal. There are plenty of people who I believe say they got it via insertive oral sex. Why would they lie if they already have the virus?

Also, I think the 6 week window period is absolute bullshit...it should be changed to 4 months....many many many people convert after 6, 8, 10 weeks, it's more like 40%  will seroconvert after 6 weeks....does anyone agree with me on this? Also, a person will start producting antibodies on average of 20-22 days, but it doesn't mean it will be detectable levels. There is a huge misconception.

Guys, I'm not here to argue, I am just feeling sad and depressed. I just don't know why I got that rash, especially right when you get ars symptoms. It's just such a coincidence.

Just to clear up one of your misconceptions, before others read it and presume.

The average time to detectable levels of antibodies is on average 20-22 days. The overwhelming majority will test positive by 6 to 8 weeks if they are going to do so with 3 months remaining the upper limit for detection.
Most people frequenting the "am I infected" forum don't even require a test, as in your case.

You can test out as long as you like for this incident(s) and you still won't test positive. I read the post you referenced and I saw nothing that would make me question the window period, nothing.

Shout out conspiracy until you're blue in the face but the fact is you're letting your feelings be your compass when the facts are indisputable in your situation.

HIV is not transmitted via someone performing oral sex on you.

I don't think you have properly read anything anyone has said.  The vast majority that are positive will test positive by 6 weeks.  A negative HIV test is conclusive at 3 months to catch all the outliers that don't test positive by then.  So 3 months is what is recommended you test out to.  So what you believe still remains irrelevant.  You tested out to 15 weeks and thus are conclusively negative for HIV.

I know this will do absolutely no good to you and should have ignored this post,but there you go.

Baby, this has gone on quite long enough. You're wasting your time, which is your choice. But wasting ours is a whole other matter.

This is not an HIV situation no matter how much you go from one foot to the other about it. We've told you what we can tell you. If it doesn't satisfy you then I suggest you look elsewhere and/or see a therapist to get some support about the problem.

But this is the end of the line as far as you coming back to us with more what ifs and stuff about what others report about how they became infected. It's not our job to change your feelings or to hold your hand everytime your mind comes up with more stuff that has no basis in HIV science.

If you come back with more of that you're going to get a TIME OUT from this site. Really.

Your not going to believe this, but I was recently tested at the UCSF Health Center for HIV, and they still recommend to test out to 6 months...this is San Francisco for God sakes.....why are they still recommending that? Is my 4 month Oraquick Finger Prick Test No Good?


Also, is the Oraquick test considered to be Modern Test?

Ming,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Your 4 month Oraquick Finger Prick Test negative result is good as gold. You are conclusively hiv negative and you do NOT need further testing.

You didn't even have a risk in the first place. Getting your penis sucked is NOT a risk for hiv infection and I don't care how many people the guy sucked before you. It doesn't matter what sort of spin or extra details you can think of to put on it, getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection!

You are conclusively hiv negative and it's time you moved on with your life.

The CDC says 97% will test positive at 3 months...do you think this is still a conservative figure?

ming,

You're not listening to us. Not only did you NOT have a risk, but you are also conclusively hiv negative even if you did have a risk.

The CDC uses out-dated, nonsensical numbers for their stats. ~shrug~

The ball is in your court. You can believe us that you didn't have a risk and that you are conclusively hiv negative, or you can go on fretting about this non-event for the rest of your life. One thing is for sure, we aren't going to allow you to continue to come here to wring your hands over this incident.

If you need help getting on with your life, then you need to see a mental health care professional face-to-face. We cannot do that for you here. There is nothing more we can do for you here. It's time you got over this and moved on.

Protect your negative status by using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, consistently and correctly, every time, no exceptions. It really is that simple!

Dr. Bob says that late seroconversion is not solely related to IV drug users, chemo, cancer, lupus, etc.

It can be simply because of the viral strain and the hosts immune reaction, with or without extenuating circumstances.

This is scary.

What is truly scary is that you are obsessing over HIV without having had a risk.

Also scary, ignoring the rather unilateral assessment of this site and asking us to refute or quantify another site's posting.

You don't have HIV. But I hope you are able to find some sort of peace through your repetitive web searches and HIV testing. To date, I submit that this has not happened.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Andy....don't you think saying "in the entire history of the epidemic, there has not been one case of hiv transmission from receiving oral sex" to be a bit of an exaggeration? For example, if a magnetic couple was having oral sex all the time, in addition to unprotected anal sex, if the negative partner becomes infected, it is automatically assumed that he got it through anal sex right? But there also is a possibility that he got it through receiving oral sex. it is pretty common to have some blood in the mouth once in a while, and especially if the person receiving oral sex is uncircumcised, most experts agree that the virus can thrive under the foreskin much longer.

The data does not support that babyming.  And you shouldn't be in this thread disrupting it like this either.

ming,

I removed the post you made in another person's thread (along with AC's response to you) and placed it here, in your own thread, which is the ONLY place you should be posting. If you have ANY further thoughts or questions, please post them here in your own thread ONLY.

Your answer is incorrect. The reason we know it is incorrect is because in "magnetic" relationships where condoms are correctly and consistently used for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral, the negative partner does NOT become infected. There have been several long-term studies that have proven this.

You do not understand the ins and outs of hiv transmission, testing and related research well enough to be giving advice in this forum. Please don't do it again - if you do, you may be given a time out.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Ann
