Hiya,

Whatever is making you sick has nothing to do with HIV from this encounter. If you are still ill, see your healthcare provider and treat whatever it is, I hope you feel better soon.

Unlikely to change but retest in two weeks, it would be best if you got screened for other far easier-to-acquire STIs.

Yeah, this would be correct. Once someone living with HIV has suppressed HIV with meds for 6+ months and continues to take their meds, they can't sexually pass on HIV even if condomless intercourse does occur. https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=71864.0

The only reason I am even suggesting you retest in two weeks is there is no way to verify this person's HIV status or if they are living with HIV and that they are indeed taking their meds.

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

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

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

Kind regards

Jim

You didn't aquire HIV from the encounter in April.

Relax, move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse, and test out of standard routine for HIV & STIs yearly.

Hello,
I am really in a dilemma right now. I made a stupid mistake and had unprotected sex with a girl who told me after 6 days that sheís positive but on treatment. I have tested up to week 27 with antibody test all non-reactive but I still feel unwell and Iíve a swollen lymph node on my groin and rashes on my scrotum and base of my penis
My question is can I rule out hiv?
I live in a country where hiv+ foreigners are deported so Iím afraid to get a lab test
Please help
