HIV Syringe Stabbed

Hi i'm depressed about this situation. I masturbated with a guy in the cr of his hotel room for about 5 mins. He turned off the lights and we masturbated. We never kissed or do sexual contact. We only do mutual masturbation. After that he turned on the lights and i noticed that he has a pouch in the sink and then, i saw a medical vial but without syringe. I am scared that he might pricked me with syringe while the lights are off but i didn't feel anything. I'm so scared! I am thinking about this everynight. Please help me!!! I'm so scared because I feel like everytime I feel something in my body i always connect it with HIV. Worst feeling ever, I have so many plans in my future

Antibodies

When someone becomes infected with HIV will they always have detectable antibodies, even if they have aids will they have antibodies that will show up on a test? Do antibodies ever go away in a HIV positive person? Help me with my confusion on this please, I've read weird things on other sites that say so many different things

Condom slips off

Same day treatment

Antibodies

Can a person have AIDS and not HIV? If a person has AIDS do they also have to test positive for HIV? Aren't they somewhat the same thing? I am a little confused. I also read on the web that when a person has AIDS that antibodies will go away therefore making it where they don't test positive on a test… is this true? Do antibodies e v e r go away once they're in a persons body? Thanks for your knowledge on HIV/AIDS

people who have HIV

hello
i just want to know people who have HIV, what should they do and also i hear that many individuals who are living with HIV, and who treat in Canada today never progress to AIDS, and do not pass on HIV to other individuals. so this means the number of infections are decreasing.
thanks

Issues

Hi! I had a hiv test at three months but one of the months was February during the window period. February only has 28 days in the month. So my exposure was with a HIV positive dude (no condom) I am a girl. We had sex January 31st and I had a negative HIV test April 27th... with the days in the months is this considered conclusive? (I think in total the HIV test was done on the 86th day after exposure) I am confused and I am so scared because I have been having so many stomach and chest issues and that is what HIV effects I also have so many other 'unexplained' symptoms. I am in constant pain now. I don't know what is wrong with me but before I had sex I was fine and did not have any of these problems. I am convinced I have HIV and I am going to get retested on June 29th. I do not know what is going on with me and neither does my doctor. He says that it may be related to stress but I don't think so. I definitely think HIV is causing my problems and I would not doubt it because the dude I had sex with does have HIV!!! I feel like my life is ruined, I do not want to live with HIV even with the medicine because those cause bad side effects too

Does Window Period Change Everytime I Sex With Wife - FOLLOW UP

Hi,
This is a follow up thread regarding my question which is still uncleared.
http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/does-window-period-change-eve...

As you said:
Every time you have sex (or participate in a risk activity) the window period for testing begins again for that activity. So if you were to have sex with anyone and are wondering if you could have acquired HIV from that encounter the HIV test is considered conclusive 12 weeks after that possible exposure.

I worry about this because i never passed my 12 weeks of period window without being sexually unactive.
I have been sexually active with my wife throughout these 2 years while testing for HIV1,2 via fourth generation.

My exposure happened 2 years ago, I tested at 3,4,6,8,10,12 month after my possible exposure but throughout my testing period i was sexually active with her .. does that mean by test are not conclusive since i have been sexually active with my wife every week?

Please help!
