HIV Test 6, 8 Weeks unprotected Sex
« on: April 02, 2009, 05:02:47 AM »
Hello all

on 30 December 2008 i was so stupid and had für maybe max. 5 Minutes unprotected vaginal Sex with a Women, she tells me later that she use in the past Heroine + Cocaine i.v and now Mehtadon, after the Sex i freaked out and ask she whats about HIV , she tells me She is HIV - .

After a fiew hours i was in the Hospital to ask what too do, i ask for PEP but the Team says i didnt need PEP.

I got 2 rapid Tests @ 6 Weeks Negative
I got 2 Rapid Tests @8 Weeks Negative

Finally im on the Week 12 and nervous too do a Final Test because i got ARS Symptoms (at 3 Weeks after Risk), 2-3 Times a rash (5-10 Points ) on the upper Body i have this never before  :-\


How is the Chance that the Final Testing comes Negative out? The Rash which i never had before makes me really nervoes.

thanks for Help and Answers

The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks. A six week negative is unlikely to change, but must be confirmed at the three month point.

If your symptoms had anything to do with hiv, you would have tested positive at either your six or eight week test. Go get your three month negative confirmation and get it over with. It will also be negative.

Don't bother posting any more photos. We do not diagnose here - but I can tell you that looks NOTHING like the rash sometimes associated with hiv.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Condoms are a girl's best friend

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
