Is there anything that can allow you to have a false negative after 8 months testing?

Is there anything that can allow you to have a false negative after 8 months testing? I had a hiv test at 8 months and it was negative. I had a low risk oral experience both received and given, with someone whos status i didnt know. I have been tested for every sti, including herpes etc. But for some reason I just have a OCD about these things. Ive been sick a couple of times and my OCD kicks in. I was wondering what disease could make hiv take longer than 8 months. Ex, like Tb, cancer,,?? Can those thing stop it from showing. Or am I just looking for more reasons to be scared?

after one year

i took rapid hiv test at end of 5 month , end of 7 months ,end of 10 months , end of 12 months and meia hiv test..all were non reactive.my question is -- is any chance now become hiv positive in future..now i am not engaged with sexual any activity..

HIV risk

Hi there,On 3rd of this month i had sexual exposure with a local guy. I had hot coffee in the afternoon which burned by lower lips, it was a raw burn with active bleeding spots( as I m on warfarin ). The area of erosion extended to the mucosal as well as the skin part of the lower lip. The guy got intimate with me and tried to kiss me on my lips.I tried to keep my mouth closed and avoided deep kissing. i could feel some saliva coming in contact with the area of erosion and seeping in my mouth, which i immediately avoided by wiping my lips with my hands. He also applied some oil to this penis ( circumsized ) and tried to enter me which immediately i opposed but i could feel his pressure of penis head on my anus.But i am sure i didnt allow him to enter me, so he eventually went for frottage and came in between my thighs in 2 mins. I am scared as later he told me that he has never been tested for HIV and he has ****** many guys with almost 50% guys with out condom.This has totally shattered me.Post episode i had a good bath with soap after 15 mins. I am really worried about the,1) Kiss where i had active bleeding spots2) If some cum has stuck to my anal opening3) The guy came in between my thighs. Is there any chance of HIV transmission if i Have scatches in between my thighs.After the incident i started getting pain in my anal region with constipation. I was examined by a surgeon who said that I have an anal fissure with sentinel pile. But I m aware of this sentinal pile since many days but was never aware of anal fissure.I am 100% sure that i didnt allow him to enter me but there was a single pressure on the pile. I am really worried.I also had Hepatitis B status since many years but negative for last 1 year, so i started myself on PEP of Duovir 1 tablet OD from 4th March and taking 1 tablet per day ( started on low dose because of history of hepatitis). But i started experiencing side effects with it like nausea right hypochondriac discomfort skin hypersensitivity oral soreness and feeling of body warmth. I also got my HIV Duo test done which is negative but my LFT is showing increased SGPT levels of 64.Plz advise me

drinking from dirty plastic cup

please ask my question about HIV transmission in this case.A few days ago, while visiting Germany, me and some friends stayed to a hotel. In one of the evening, I was in my friend room, and he asked me if I want some beer, and said yes. As there weren't many glasses in the room, he goes to the room bathroom, and come back with a plastic cup (transparent one). He put beer in, and when I started to drink, I saw on the upper part of the cup (where i put my mouth), some white substance. I drink the beer in a few seconds. I didn't had any cuts on my lips or mouth. Then my friend told me that this cup was used by his son, to wash his son mouth after the son brush his teeth. I have no idea if there was some blood in the cup, or just the toothpaste from his son mouth (possible mixed with blood). But when I checked the cup, the white substance (possible toothpaste), seems to be dried. I didn't used the cup right after someone, but maybe minutes/hours later.
Is there any risk, if in the cup was some blood (mixed in beer), and I drunk the beer, without any cuts in my mouth?
Thank you,

What are the steps if you are detected HIV +?

HI there,
It is a scary moment for me right now as I had sex yesterday and the condom broke inside me and i had some cum all in me. The guy I had sex said he is clean and tested Jan. Of course I;m terrified about it and didn't sleep at all last night... I want to get tested of course, but I;m soooo scared and no idea what to do if the test comes +...
Is there a "pill" or something I should do as this happened less than 24 hours?
Sorry to be so opened but when that happened I duched and cleaned myself in the shower with water for like 10 min or so...
Is there any thing I should do or know? Is there any test that I can go in and get it done and know the result right away? The wait would just kill me and I wouldn't be able to go through this...
I'm freaking out of course.. any help and comment would be soooooo good right now...
thanks a bunch!


hello... im just wondering...
I have blocked salivary gland under my tongue it started two weeks ago.. I never had fever... my lymph node swell but just for only 2-3 days... My ENT gave me antibiotics and the swelling is gone but i can still feel that my salivary gland is still blocked. I can still feel the lump.
Last tuesday (march 13, 2012), it was raining i caught cold... no fever. but i am having post nasal drip and itchy sore throat. 
I had 2 encounters 
1st was feb 23, 2012... with a female masseuse... no anal, no vaginal, no oral sex. Body massage with oil using her forearm and Her BUTT... She titfuck me for a few seconds and hand job me. No sore , cuts on her hand...
2nd was March 6 with a male... no anal.no oral  i just touched his penis twice then i jack off my self (ejaculation). after i touched him i washed my hands with rubbing alcohol.
I tested before Feb 7, 2012 (non reactive) may last risky encounter was march 2011 so it is conclusive..
here are my questions.
1. Do my symptoms represent ARS?
2. Do i need to get tested?
3. or is it stress freaking me out?
4. Is there any reported cases thru this mode of transmission?
5. Im feeling tired? Maybe caused by my constant thinking and researching the net. whew!
Hoping for your answer. Can you please advise me what to do.. Im 24 male from manila
Thank you!

Blood in wine

Hello Moderators,
I was with my friends out for dinner and the waiter was opening the foil onto of the cork using a knife. He gets a cut and bleeds. The blood might have come into contact with the wine and we immediately drank the wine.  
People say no one has ever gotten HIV from drinking or eating contaminated food but is it still true if the blood was so fresh?
