Answer: 

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions! We're happy to help.

The situation you describe is No Risk. There is no exchange of bodily fluids during a massage or hand job, thus eliminating any HIV risk.

Additionally, HIV tests are conclusive after just 3 months post exposure. So both the tests you took are indeed conclusive! Congrats on your negative test result.

If you continue to experience any sort of symptoms like the ones you're describing, I encourage you to partner with a doctor to try to figure out what the cause may be, as it's definitely not HIV.

No further testing is required!

I hope this helped!

Sincerely,

Christina
