HIV Prevention and Testing > Do I Have HIV?

Risk situation with sex worker

(1/2) > >>

Hello,
I am 52 year old male.
2 months ago I had a situation with a female sex worker who's HIV status is unkown(I asked her after the fact but all she said is that she is "low risk" with HIV)

I actually asked her how much money she would like me to pay her to show her last HIV test result. She told me she would not show her "negative HIV test result" for any money!

This is what happened:
She gave a couple of minutes oral sex, she put a condom on(I watched she did)
and we had vaginal sex for a few minutes. I lost an erection(without ejaculation) and I pulled my penis out and she removed the condom and gave more unprotected oral but I didnt get erection anymore and we stopped on that.

I asked her a week or so later that was the condom broken. She said no.
I am thinking she could lie about it.
I put the condom in trash but I didnt pay attention to it.

Then started the testing:

6 days after the risk situation I had Gen 4 ab/ag HIV test done. Negative.
This included 10 panel STD tests. All negative.

16 days after the risk situation I had chlamydia and gonorrhea test. Negative.

38 days (5 weeks and 3 days) after the risk situation I had  Gen 4 ab/ag HIV test. Negative.

7 weeks + 1 day after the risk situation I had Oraquick mouth swap home test.
Negative.

I don't have anything else risk situations or risk behavior.

Should I still wait for the official 3 months and get tested again?
Or could that 38 days be considered ok?

I really appreciate your time to answer on this

Thank you so much!!!

 :) Good, she owes you nothing and her HIV status is none of your business. Also, it would be irrelevant.

Receiving a blowjob is no HIV risk to you whatsoever. As for the intercourse, HIV can't transmit through an intact latex or polyurethane condom. If a condom fails during the act of intercourse it's obvious. So as long as this obvious issue did not happen during intercourse, there is no reason to be stressing or testing for HIV outside of standard yearly routine.

If this was your only sexual contact then relax and move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about taking PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and, the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Thank you so much for a quick response!

My memory is slightly blurry about that condom, hopefully its just my mind creating a scenarios like "what if this and that...?"

In case that the condom was actually failed, what you think about that Gen4 ab/ag test at 38 days after? (being 4 days short from 6 weeks)

Also I took Oraquick at 7 weeks and I know that it is designed to be used 3 months after. Does that give some degree of assurance?

Thanks again!!!

Move on.

If in the future you ever do have a real risk, then test at 6 weeks with a blood-drawn lab antibodies test or at 3 months if using a POC (Rapid) test.

Thank you Jim!

May I ask one more question, do you hear from people getting false negatives from testing after 5 weeks but before 6 weeks?

There are so much different information about that window period and I am sure you have a real world knowledge about this.

Thank you again Jim
