Thanks for taking the time to read this.
I am a healthy 33 year old male and around 12 years ago I had unprotected sex with a female classmate of unknown status. I'm ashamed to say that I was never tested. It was shortly after this that I met my wife.
Well we recently found out that she is pregnant and she was sent for a prenatal screening which included an HIV test. It wasn't until this that I started to think about that unprotected encounter with the girl from 12 years ago.
My wife and I are both quite healthy, never any flu symptoms or rashes or anything that I can recall in the last 12 years, and I know that I didn't get sick after being with the girl from school. We both get a couple of colds a year, but those are usually gone within a few days and never involve a fever or anything major.
We both have annual physicals that include all the standard tests (CBC with differential, blood chemistry panel, etc) and nothing has ever been abnormal. None of our annual physicals include HIV tests, although my wife had a negative HIV test in 2009, as part of a medical for school.
I guess I'm just trying to evaluate the risk, even though I know that's pretty much impossible to do. But wouldn't it be reasonable to think a CBC with differential would have shown some abnormalities after 11-12 years of living with untreated HIV?
