hi guys,well i am going nuts now. i bought a home access test today. only 17 days since my finger had vaginal fulid on it (the one i pricked 3 hours prior to check my blood sugar) and sent it in. i know its early but i need to do this or im going to loose it. i now have muscle pain all over and my lymph nodes feel sore, i dont think they feel swollen but not 100% sure. i know if you play with them they could hurt too but not playing with them. i am driving my wife nuts too and she is pregnant with our first baby. i called 2 hiv hotlines and they both said not to worry about it and called the cdc and they perty much say well you can get it almost anyway with any sex and needles. if i did not have the pains and hot and cold and sweats i would have moved on but now im loosing it.. please guys hang in there with me, i need your support to get me by this thank you tom

you did NOT have a risk from that incident of fingering the stripper with your blood sugar testing finger.  that's essentially that same kinda scenarios you've presented here since way back in january. 
not at risk then.  not now either.

There are no home tests that are approved that will give you a result right then, but it doesn't matter in your case because you didn't have a risk. You wasted 19.00.

And you will test negative at 6 and 12 weeks, because you never had a risk. But you do what you like. Remember though that posting endlessly about non-risks can result in a time out.

You've been told repeatedly that you didn't have a risk for hiv infection. That answer is not going to change.

You have also been warned about our policy of not allowing people to post repeatedly over a no-risk situation. I'm giving you that time out I warned you about. As this is your second time out, it will be for eight weeks. Do NOT attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be banned permanently. No questions asked.
