I answered that question already. No risk. I'm not willing to continue to indulge you in these handholding exchanges.

Get yourself some professional help in the proper setting, which is NOT here.

Indian,

If you've resd the Welcome thread like you're supposed to, you will have seen the following:

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.

Hello,

I posted earlier with my second exposure at a massage parlour. The incident involved the lady touching my penis after rubbing her vagina. There was no other sexual contact involved.I understand that this is a almost zero risk situatuation. But, if I need confirmation will it be ok if I take a PCR test at 28 days. Also, which PCR test is good(DNA/RNA).

Ps: As suggested I am seeing a mental councellor but for my peace I want to take a test.

Please advice.
Thanks.

Indian,

The only PCR test that is approved for diagnostic use is the RNA. However, you don't need any sort of hiv testing at all for your massage incident and a good, knowledgeable doctor would not order one for you under your circumstances. I suggest you see your counselor before going ahead with the unnecessary PCR test.

This is the absolute LAST time I am going to warn you about continually posting over these no-risk incidents. You have not had a risk for hiv in anything you have brought to this forum.

Thanks Ann, for a quick response.
I will not disobey you and ask anymore questions. But you didn't mention when to take the RNA PCR tests if I decide to take one.
