Exclamation Still Scared

Here's my story.

((((REMOVED))))))

Mod~ZillahHomosexual encounter unprotected

Anyway, a week after that, i developed a virus called Herpangina. It's a virus that usually only little kids get, totally went away in less then five days. No fever or rash, just a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes.

Mod~ZillahPartner of encounter agreed to get tested He was negative and so was i, which for a normal person, means i am okay. But i still cant sleep at night, and have since broken up with my girlfriend. This is all i can think about.

My options are as follows:

- I can feel like crap for the next 4 1/2 months until the i can take the ELISA

- I can feel like crap for the next 1 1/2 months until i can take the OraSure test again

- I can take the PCR test, which i have heard has a high error rating.

Can anyone fill me in with info on these different test? I've been searching for more info on the PCR because i have found little info on it.

Any help/support appreciated.
