tested oraquick advance after 2 years from the event
« on: August 25, 2011, 11:30:37 AM »
Hi, I'm here writing my first post.
I'm from Asia, female, and 22.

I didn't go anywhere like prostitute, or massage parlors.
After entering university, I have only dated one guy, and his age was 24 at then.
I wasn't sure about his hiv status because we never talked about that subject but he seemed to be very promiscuous. He told me he did many one night stands with many many girls before he met me. And he had dated over 12 girls before going out with me.

Anyway, I didn't really think we did something highly dangerous, but I had a few times of frottage with him during mimicking sex, and I gave him oral for 2 times which was about a minute for each time.
I know that risk of transmission through oral sex is very, very low.
But the problem is that I'm not sure what the criteria between 'frottage' and 'dipping' is.
We were mimicking sex like 4~5 times and each took about 30 minutes with no condom.
But I've never had real sex before and I don't even know what it feels like.
While mimicking, I felt his penis pressuring hard on my vagina.
Can you feel it clearly even when slight penetration happens? (dipping)
We were all very wet and I didn't feel his penis penetrating me.
But with the strong pressure, I think my minor labium might have been opened slightly to his pressure.
Isn't this also a very shallow penetration? I wonder...if I should see this as frottage or not.

Anyways this was 2 years before. At that time I had ARS symptoms like fever, serious muscle ache, elevated liver enzymes, swollen face for a month.
All these didn't vanish for a month although I took medicines prescribed from the doctor.
At that time i never thought about hiv. So i jus moved on.

But recently i developed pneumonia, & also red rashes all over my body that come& go periodically.
So I tested oraquick advance, which turned out to be negative.

Is this reliable? I know i should trust the test but somewhere i saw that the oraquick isn't that accurate as told.

Please help me...Thx in advance.

What you describe is definitely frottage and frottage is not a risk for hiv infection.

You have not had a risk for hiv infection.

Even if you DID have a risk (which you did not), you are still conclusively hiv negative. While rapid tests sometimes produce false positive results, they do not produce false negative results outside the window period for testing.

The window period for testing is three months, so you tested far outside that time. You are conclusively hiv negative.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

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 the 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
