Hello!

I hope you can answer on my queries.

I had a risky exposure (anal no condom and no ejaculation inside) last September 18, 2015 but my partner always says that he's negative. I believed in him so I moved on. I had another intercourse last March 30, 2016 but it has a condom and lube. I even checked if the condom was broken and fortunately, it was not broken. I had oral sex as the bottom last April 13, 2016 and no ejaculation. I have no mouth sores or any mouth problems that time.

I got tested for HIV at home using HIV test kit and it was negative last May 16, 2016 and June 23, 2016 at a local health center using Rapid ICT and it was negative for HIV, Hepa B and Syphilis.

So, my last HIV test was June 23, 2016 and it was negative. Can I at least relax for now because my risky exposure was 9 months ago, the protected sex was 94 days ago and the oral sex with no ejaculation was 79 days ago? Will my 9 month exposure will be false negative because I had sex again last March 30 with condom before taking the test last June 23, 2016?

Thank you so much and I'm from the Philippines. I hope you can answer my questions.

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

HIV tests are considered to be conclusive when taken 3 months following exposure. This means that the tests you took following your sexual experiences can be considered to be conclusive.

Also, it might put your mind at ease a bit to know that oral sex (whether giving or receiving) is considered to be a low risk activity for acquiring HIV.

For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or CATIE.ca.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
