Hi. I have an exposure 15 weeks ago. we are drunk during that time. she gave me an oral and we kissed each other. also our genitals rubbed together as she was in my top while i seat in a chair. but there's no penetration happened. i experienced fever and sore throat once for almost one almost one week but i didn't experienced rashes, swollen lymph glands, extreme fatigue and mouth ulcers. i was tested after 92 days using sd bioline hiv1/2. it was negative. but i'm confused. i read articles regarding on how that test is conducted. the person who conducted the test didn't put any solution in my blood specimen in the testing kit. im so confused. i hope you can help me because i;m so scared to death and anxious. thanks!

Greetings,

First and foremost, oral sex and frottage (sexual rubbing) is considered a negligible risk for HIV transmission, which means that although there are body fluids involved, there has never been a reported case of HIV transmission in this manner. Kissing poses no risk for HIV transmission.

It is great to hear you got tested, as we here at AIDS Vancouver encourage all sexually active individuals to engage in regular testing as it pertains to your needs. This could be every few months or annually. If you have any concerns about the last test you had done, there is no harm in retesting, or asking questions during your tests-the doctors and nurses are their to provide you with a service, and if you are uncertain do not be afraid to speak up or advocate for yourself.

The symptoms you are experiencing are not as result of HIV, as you did not engage in any activities that risk HIV transmission. Also, if you are having symptoms of HIV, when testing at 92 days, it would have certainly been found within your blood. All tests are considered conclusive at 82 days or 3 months, with no further testing required. I hope you are able to put this behind you and move forward.

Feel free to contact us again with any further questions or concerns,

Katie
