Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

My first post on that thread said it all. You had a no risk and you tested negative.

Now as for testing again, well ONLY an antibidy test will confirm your status and that has already been confirmed as negative. A pcr is only used to monitor HIV patients. so its not a worth while test.

So my advice i simple. Understand you had no risk, understand your tests that you have taken are perfect and you are HIV negtaive and dont need anymore testing.

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

Hello Apollo,

Well, we will see. Tomorow i have an apointment with a doctor. I will tell him everything that bothers me, my symptoms and exposure. I think he will ask me after I tell him my symptoms if i had unprotected sex with someone. This thing hapened to me when i first started going to the doctor. But knowing i only had a handjob i answered no. But i tested anyway. Negative so far. F#$K this life. I wish i just find out already. And from my reserch I understand a PCR test does not rely on the window period becouse its not looking for antibodies. If the PCR is negative (no HIV rna detected) at 6 months than i can rule out hiv forever. The problem is it will detect HIV for sure. I was reading on forums of infected people where they say they tested negative more than 6 months after exposure.

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

No one will test postive after the 3month window with modern tests unless they are on immunosuppressant drugs, or aggresive chemo and even then its very rare.

I proved with my tests as you know, thats symptoms are speculative results conclusive. One test at 3 months is all you need, and if your negative then your always going to be negative unless you have an exposure, and thats the point, you didnt even have an exposure boddy.

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

And about the risk of transmision from oral I understand its lower than normal or anal sex but still possible. There are a few registered cases of oral transmision actualy. I have checked and found a few. Not only that but if you check forums of recently infected people o other sites you will find some who got infected from oral sex. They never had unprotected vaginal or anal, and no condom faliure. But I guess nobody cares i guess...Whatever right. Everyone should just protect themselfes for vaginal sex and anal. If you have oral sex dont bother protecting. There is absolutley no chance you could ghet HIV, noo chance!!!

You tested negative already, so if you had a risk of not is not for debate, your tests proved your negative.

So now it dosent mater if i had a risk? I want people to understand that even if oral sex is considered a lower risk its absolutely a viable way of transmision for HIV. In any way its not a no risk. This is a HIV prevention forum!!! People should be warned of the risk so they wont put themselfes at risk again. I I woldnt have these symptoms I would belive you!! Probably I wouldnt be here if i didnt have symptoms.

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

And the tests I had where MEIA. These are not duo tests. I am not on chemo, i dont do IV drugs or any other, i didnt recive organs. So I should not be infected even if i had a risk. The two tests i had prove that, right? Then how is it possible I have all the symptoms i have? Was I going to have these health issues even if I didnt go to that massage? This is my logic. Symptoms mean something is wrong. I had and have all of them!!!

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

I understand you completely. I am also going crazy. I am very afraid to get tested now. With the symptoms i have and tested negative at 6m and 10 days after protected sex (oral and vaginal). My current symptoms are the following:
- joints pain (kind of arthridis) in hips and ahoulders
- swollen lymph nodes (groin)
- white layer on tongue (went to a specialist and verified it but did not classify as thrush) only prescribed some gargling with carbonate and salt
- enlarged thyroid
- red lines in eyes
- my nails seem to be weird (vertical lines)
I think they are enough symptoms indicating body disorder

I doubt it. It's impossible to feel the way I feel and not be infected with HIV. I am just waiting to test with the PCR and have a final answer. I will inform you when i have the results.

Re: All HIV symptoms, negative test at 4 and 6 months

My last post. You have tested negative many times and have yet to belive medical facts and science from the tests you have taken. So maybe when yout at the doctors tomorrow, you should ask for help for your mental health as well, your anxitity has got the better of you. Best of luck

I will. Who woldnt be anxious in my case? Its not just my life on the line!! I had sex with my girlfriend after the exposure(becouse i didnt think i was infected only after the onset of symptoms). If i am infected i infected her too. I cant live with the thouth of infecting her. So i will have to live knowing i destroyed not only my life but even the life of the woman i love. I should kill myself. If it was only me it would be ok. By the way my GF has my simptoms too, soo... Its prety much over. F&%K this life. I had everything!!! I didnt need to go to that stupid massage!!! Why is this hapening?? I havent cheated on my girl until this. It was curiosity I guess. We have 5 years together. I love her soo much!!!
