hi Ann and Andy and Rod.

I must admire you guys for all the effort you have put in! I Know God will reward you for this! I pray to God to give you guys all the happiness in  life.

Exposure: One time lick of ass cleave with a stripper in Italy (who did not allow to kiss her) on her lips.
               on October 3rd 2008
               Kissing, fondling, breast licking and fingering that lasted 30 seconds of another stripper in    scotland
               on October 10 2008
               Handjob on 17th Novemeber 2008 by CSW with ejaculation
               (unknown status. no data on her fingers or fresh blood as i was unaware of this mode of  transmission    )
               (also, no precaution taken while oral and fingering with strippers (30 seconds, superficial)

Symptoms: pain in groin and pain while ejaculating in January2009.
                HIV 2nd generation elisa taken on 26th February2009
                Result: Non reactive (14 weeks later)

Now in the month of September: Sore throat/fever/persistent white coating on tongue/fatigue/eye burning/pins and needles in the upper part of the body.

ive read through your forum consistently, but please dont leave out my question!! i beg you!!
are there chances, that i got missed with my 14th week older generation test that was performed in a lab here in India! Did i Seroconvert between the 3-6 month period?

I know both activities were low risk, but was testing once at 14 weeks enough? I am etremely guilty on the lack of knowledge of this subject. Never engaged in penetrative sex and always thought that was the only route of transmission. The only other test i did after exposure at 14 weeks was Syphillis which was negative

Now im too scared to test as i dont want my results to change as i think they missed me due to lab error or something. My tongue pains a lot! and its been so for more than a month!!!!!

Nothing that you have done was a risk of contracting HIV. You don't need testing.

Hi RapidRod!

Thanks for ure early reply. i know, that when i read online, it is said, that there has been NOBODY that has been tested poz on oral sex (male)/ Handjob.

However, since im showing every symptom on the book. Ive started misbelieving my 14 week test that came out negative thinking that here was some error. I simply cant move on and think that im among the ones whos seroconverted beyond 3 months.

Also,  i just want you guys, and i trust you Ann and Andy on this just like i trust my God, to give me some reassurance so that i can move on. All i was exposed to were theoretical risks i understand, but i simply feel, after reading 6 month window, especially on INDIAN websites that im a late seroconverter!

Please help!

You're not going to seroconvert late because you never had a risk for hiv infection in the first place. YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. Whatever is going on has nothing to do with hiv. YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV.

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
