i have another question on seroconversion, say you had tiny fractures on the tip of your penis from smacking it around or an open cyst on your penis would that be more receptive to the virus and would it make any difference in seroconversion time....longer then 12 weeks.......?

hello why would the CDC say that the person should test at 3 months if possably infected, and if the person is considered to have hiv who they engaged sex with they test out to 6 months is this just for insurance purposes or does this mean that my 12 month - means nothing since the girl who i had sex with has hiv and i have never felt so weird with every symptom of hiv in my life....do i need more tests

You've already conclusively tested negative for HIV. The fact that the person you were with was HIV+ is irrelevant at this point. This is not an HIV situation.

You're convincing me that you need to see a counselor or other mental health professional to deal with this issue.

You are HIV negative.

hello i have been trying to stay away from the computer but my anxiety came back after i just received my negative test result ...this would be a (17.5 week test or 123 days) OK here is my queston why does the recording say on the phone that it doesn't detect early infection and that if you have been exposed before 6 months that you may not of developed enough antibodies to test positive....i know you guys say 12 to 13 weeks but why is the recording saying that i just want to know that i am OK and should i retest in 2 months are the home access tests reliable whats the deal with that message .....i would move on but i still feel like i have swollen lymph's

Stop doing this to yourself. There is conflicting information out there regarding HIV and sometimes it is not necessarily linked to science but sometimes liability. HIV is a disease that suppresses your immune system as a result almost anything could be linked to it but that doesnt mean it is HIV. HIV is fragile and difficult to transmit through vaginal sex from female to male ( not an invitiationto engage in more unprotected sex) You tested negative- be happy. I read through the threads on this one because you said the girl was a murderer. Take responsibility for your actions ( though her lies were not acceptable the issue is your health). Whether she lied or not you were not aware enough to realize asking someone their status was not precaution enough. Learn something and dont make this mistake again. If you want to retest just do it- dont anaylze every symptom as it could be anything or nothing. Our minds play tricks on us all the time making us think we are ill when we are fine. Be well. :)

13 weeks is conclusive.  Not 6 months.  You are RELIABLY negative, try to move on.
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
