New risk, or a non issue?
« on: March 30, 2010, 02:41:12 PM »
I guess I should start by saying I have been here before, with the username "justjazzy" . I was given the 28 day time out a while back, but wasnt able to log back in even after that. have tried so hard to stay off of these websites and forums, I know that I abused them in the past and consequently everytime I post  everyone seems to think it is regarding the same exposure that I had back in May 09, and tested negative definitively thereafter. But it is not about that. I feel as though I have put my sero-negative status at risk again, and wish to be assesed. In January, I had protected sex with my ex boyfriend, but I grew tired and made him stop. He removed the condom and we engaged in oral, as well as frottage. During the said frottage, he unexpectedly "dipped" into me without a condom. I pulled right away from him, thus the penetration lasted afew seconds, if that, but alas...my HIV anxiety was re-awakened with new fury.

 What want to know is...was the above mentioned incident (the unprotected "dip", which is literally what it can best be described as) a risk? Shortly after this incident in January, I acquired a yeast infection but only very recently got it properly diagnosed, at a Planned Parenthood. Before last week I had no idea what was going on as I have been experiencing clear (sometimes white and milk looking) discharge since January, but just associated it with hormone changes. When I went to Planned Parenthood last week, they told me it was a yeast and prescribed me a Miconazole nitrate cream to use for 7 days. Much to my upset, I punctured a hole in the nitrate cream on the second night and was forced to dispose of it . The pharmacy would not allow me to get another one even after only two days, as I had no more refills. So I opted for Monistat 7. Today makes 9 days since I began using it, and I still have the yeast/discharge. I am so afraid as I never had a yeast infection before, not to mention the medicine clearly states it was supposed to be over by the 7th day, and to see your doctor if not. Also there was a lot of information on how yeast infections were very common in acute HIV infection. I went for another HIV test on March 9th, 2009. And I was negative. That makes 10 months post my original exposure that I posted about here, and 7 weeks since this "dip" incident with my ex boyfriend. Given this information, do you think I should test again at 13 weeks? Or is it still impossible that I was infected from this incident? Thanks in advance.

There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to log into your old account - I've just looked. You will not be permitted to post with this new account, so I suggest you try your old account again.

Use your original thread when you go back to the other account. Otherwise your questions will not be answered.

I'm locking this thread and disabling your new account.

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
