I ran into man I've had a crush on for 10 years. To make a long story short I.topped him without a condom and it took me only two minutes tell I ejaculated in him. For some reason I felt I had made a mistake. the next day I went and purchased two OraQuick HIV rapid tests. I was falling in love and just wanted to do the test so we could possibly be monogamous 3 months late the worst I thought came true. I trusted him but he.did t.know his status.
His test was positive and my test was negative. I went and bougt a 3rd OraQuick hoping it was wrong. His results were still positive. I took him to a health clinic 3 weeks later for rapid blood test. I was negative and once again his positive. They drew blood on him I believe for STI and a western blot. He won't let me help anymore. He never went back for the results. I wish and pray I could help him. I pray for him. I had a complete STI checkup all negative and at 7 weeks OraQuick still neg. I have never been so frightened in my life. This has been agonizing and a real eye opener...... even though I read that 95 percent of people develop antibodies to HIV within 21-35 days. I know in my heart I will be ok. Big big lesson learned here. Besides oral sex that was our only insertion top bottom experience. He now thinks I treat him like a germ. What I did find out was he is a chronic meth user and hard alcohol drinker. I wish he would believe me when I tell him to get on meds ASAP. Our relationship is unfortunately no more. My questions are simple: I think he blames me because I tested him.
1. Are those 4th generation tests truly accurate as it states 95 percent of.people antibodies in 21 to 35 days. I'm like on day 50 after exposure. I know I.will need 3.month and 6.month as well but I'm so frightened still.
2. How can I help my friend stop using Meth and Alcohol to get on antiviral meds. Is it wrong of me to not want to be in a discordant or.magnetic relationship? I Mean I worry.so.much. its.not.that I'm scared.for.me
.I .mostly scared for.him and his drug use. I.con sider myself very spiritual and christian. He doesnt.listen to.my.beliefs and quite honestly the rudest person I've ever dated.
Thank you so much for doing what you do. I pray for.my friend, myself, and everyone with this disease.
Thank u I will donate. Thank u so much!
hi,i had sex with a sex worker and the condom broke.three weeks later i had fever,headache,swollen lymphnodes ,flu and some red spots on my arms.i took antibody test after 8 weeks and results came back negative.i again got involved in another sexual relationship with a woman and the next day i was told she is positive so i was put on pep after 43hrs.two weeks after taking pep i again tested negative.but now i still have swollen lymphnodes and i also got malaria three consecutive times.
my question is if i had contracted hiv in the first case could i have tested positive after 3 months even after taking that pep.and also could these lymph nodes mean i contracted hiv?then could the malaria mean my immunity has weakend?
i am really scared that i have hiv. i am having all the symptoms and i think i have contracted hiv. for 4 months i have not being feling well. first i had a sensation of something stuck in my throat and for 15 days i am feeling dizzy and fatigue. i am have these little red line rashes on my hand( its a red line) i have 3 now and i am really scared after reading the symptoms also i keep on having head aches and i feel very weak and dizzy. I also have little spots on my leg(like a boil or pimple) some are red and some are black i am really scared the last time i had sex was 6months ago but that was unprotected sex, i also masterbate twice or thrice a day so can that cause hiv. pls help i am really scared i think i am dying!!!!!!!pls help!!!!!
I had unprotected sex with a guy that I've been avoiding for months. While having sex with him he ejaculated inside of me twice. That was our only encounter but after we were done I told him we needed to be tested bc that was inappropriate. He then states that's fine we can get tested. A few days later, I had unprotected sex with my constant partner in which I continuously tried to avoid. The next day he came down with a horrible sore throat and fever. Although I haven't had any symptoms, could this mean I've been exposed to the HIV virus and gave it to him?
i had unprotected sex a commercial sex worker on 8.3.2014 and got Rapid test and other STI test/ Urine test etc all came negative or non-reactive as on 12.4.2014. I was tested for western blot on 26.4.2014 and the result as on 3.5.2014 was indeterminate on p24 detected and the report read " Specific viral bands are present but pattern observed does not meet the criteria for HIV 1 positive and All HIV 2 results are negative.I was put on antiretrovirals drugs for 4 weeks and i had taken them for 3 weeks ended on 20.5.2014. I again got tested for Elisa on 18.5.2014 for hiv 1 and 2 and test value were 0.188 and the cut of value was <0.263 --and it was negative and the rapid test/HBsag/ VDRL all were also either negative or non-reactive. Kindly advice my status .

Hi Im a 21 Year old male who had unprotected vaginal sexual intercourse with a girl I just had met. Her status was unknown and I instantly became very worried of HIV because it seems she was very promiscuous. At about 3 weeks I developed a minor sore throat that went away within a few days, a pimple maybe cold sore on my lip also that went away within a week. I started to develop headaches at about 5 weeks and another minor sore throat post exposure and decided to get tested at 37 days post exposure (Oraquick mouth swab test) and it was negative. I was relieved and the headaches kept coming and I began to get chills (may have been due to anxiety?) but no fever or rash. So I took another test at 43 days after exposure (about 6 weeks) it was the same oraquick mouth swab test. Then just today about 45 days post exposure I felt one sore swollen lymph node in my right groin area. Could this lymph node swelling be due to me Spraining my right ankle three days ago? I sprained my ankle pretty badly playing basketball (Bruised swollen a little). Should I continue to be worried about HIV or is my 6 week test conclusive enough? Do lymph nodes begin to swell up 6 weeks post exposure? please someone help my anxiety is through the roof.
Pls help regarding chances of a woman getting infected with hiv from a hiv positive male in a single act of sexual intercourse and ejaculation inside.And a couple of other instances of intercourse without ejaculation and with pre semi nation fluid.These acts were in the sero conversion period after 15 to 30 days of exposure.The lady has not had her periods for over 3 months.Could she be hiv positive.
43 days ago, I had unprotected anal sex, I was the insertion parterner, and the sex lasted for 5 minutes "I didn't even cum" and I used a lot of saliva as a lubricant, which I heard it have an enzyme that kills the virus, It happened only once, and I dunno the HIV status of the person I had sex with.
After this time, I didn't do sex again with anyone, and yesterday I had the 3rd generation ELISA test and it came NEGATIVE after 43 days, Is my test a good indication of my status after this number of days? And by how much percentage it is? I have no STD's and I am circumsized, with no sores or any cuts on my penis. I also didn't have the flue since then, because I heard that some people get a strong flu after being infected with the virus.
I suffer from health problems because of my anxiety, I got hospitalized a week ago because of unstable heart beats! .... I am dead terrified, and am still anxious, please help me ASAP. THANK YOU so much for this helpline. Also what are the chances that the result will change in the next weeks? Thank u.
I had unprotected anal sex with someone that I don't know his HIV status, I was the top, and it lasted for 5 minutes, and I didn't even cum, and the lubrication I used was saliva, lots of it. What's the rest of acquiring HIV, in case he is HIV positive? Please answer ASAP.
