Unprotected Sexual Intercourse

I just want to describe little bit about my situation here, I have unprotected vaginal sex with a girl of unknown HIV status. I do not go all the way inside her vagina and i only had my upper part of penis inside her. This act was only for 20 -30 seconds and i ejaculate outside because she was not feeling comfortable and crossing her legs again and again. When i saw my penis was all dry and there was no vaginal fluids on it beacuse i do not go all the way. This happened on 15 October.
Then after 9 days i went to clinic in vancouver and get tested for Pool Hiv Naat test, antibody test and many std and all of them came back negative. and again i went for all the same test again after 16 days and results was again all negative.
Is there is any possibility that these test are false Negative?
How much Naat test have accuracy after 9 and 16 days?
Are these are results are good indicator?

Rapid tests week by week

Hello Doctor, I am a 34 yo male smoker. I had unprotected sex with a sex worker while I was too drunk to found out that the condom removed during sex.

On 7th week I started to have dry cough for weeks, and start fever (101F, 38.3C) on 9th week. Doctor said I had bronchitis and he dispensed NSAID drugs and antibiotics. I had no more fever at the end of 9th week. I started realized if it is related to HIV ARS and become very anxiety. I then freaked out with having 3 little red color rash on each of my inner ankle on 10th week but it disappear after 3 days and it lefts light brownish yellow. My dry cough still exists since I can't stop smoking when worrying.

On 9th, 10th & 11th week, I had Oral fluid test (name: Aware Oral HIV1/2 OMT, 3rd generation from Calypte Biomedical Corporation, approved by USAID), all negative.

I also had Rapid fingerprick blood test on 10th week by using Doctoreyes ( http://www.sampsonstore.com/neovision/condom/product/details.is?product_... ) and also comes with a negative result.

On 84 days (12th week) I did a rapid fingerprick test with Alere Determine HIV1/2. Negative also.

Are my negative results conclusive? Sorry I am still so scare about hiv.

Insertive anal sex and condom broke

I met a stranger yesterday through an app and he performed oral sex on my for quite some time. Then we had anal sex. I was the top and my penis did not go fully in. I used a condom of questionable quality and massage oil (I was stupid). I stopped thrusting after a minute or so and I realised the condom was broken at the side. I again wore another condom and tried to perform and the condom broke again. He says he has had unsafe anal sex a couple of times. It has been 5 hours since I had this encounter (9 pm my time). Should I go for PEP tomorrow? What are my chances of getting HIV from this encounter?

Am I Ok???

Hi there, Firstly I am thanking you all for you great job.
Exactly 168 days (24 weeks) back I had participated in unprotected sex with a CSW. I am a male. Because of some bronchial problems I took a course of PREDNISONE tabs for 10 days. It happened exactly 80 days after the incident so I used these tablets 80th day to 90th day from the incident. Immediately I went for an HIV antibody test in clinic It was NON-REACTIVE (it was rapid test named Comb-aids kit). But I read in net that PREDNISONE is an Immunosupressive drug and steroid. So I was told that some one here the test was not conclusive for me. And I have taken same test today It was also came back NON-REACTIVE. Then please let me know that Am I OK??? Am I conclusively negative? why I am asking this still I am suffering from the bronchial problems(short of breath) and fungal Infections( seborrheic dermatitis) on face and scalp.
These have any relation with HIV? Can I move on with my life....!


if i unprotected sex with a commercial sex worker they have not HIV positive then i will hiv or not?

rapid test after 7.5 weeks

I had a possible exposure 1 september, after I noticed upon withdrawal a condom was torn on the side just below the penile head.The sperm were still inside and the condom still in position not sure if my penis made contact with the vigina fluids.I took a rapid test where blood was withdrawn with a fingure prick on the25th september, 6 october and 23 october all being negative.However my partner has tested positive on the 25th september.Is my status likely to change with a rapid test negative after 7 weeks.

very scared and worried

I had insertive/top) anal intercourse with a guy I dated for a few weeks.  Although he did provide me with a negative hiv test report I have learned that he may have had other unprotected partners.  It was a one time thing and I ejaculated in his ass.  I am extremely worried and afraid.  While I read a top has a lesser risk I'm very stressed about this.  Please help.  As the top can I breathe a little easier??
