Hi! I've received unprotected oral sex from CSW on mid May 2012. At that time the lady that giving me the oral sex are having cough & I'm not dure about her status. 2 weeks after that I start to have rash/blister & which is some of it are itch. Till today (52 days) I can see that there will be new rash develop in my face, arm & thight. 2 weeks after that I've also experience sweating at night (while sleeping) for about 1 week. I also have sore throat, fatigue, muscle pain & join pain & sometimes feels chill which start after 2 weeks of the activity. The mucle pain & fatigue was gone last week (week 7).
I've done the antibody rapid test on 6 week (40 days) & the result is -ve. 3 days ago I notice there is tonsil at my throat & I also feel uneasy feeling at neck & under chin area. Not sure whether it was due to the swollen lymph node. I'm plan to take another antibody rapid test somewhere next week (at the end of 8 week). May I know what will be the risk & what is the chance for me to keep the result to be -ve. Appreciate a feedback as I feel very worried for few weeks..
Hi Apollo123! Thank U for your reply. From my reading the conclusive result will be only at 13 weeks. With all the symptom that I've now, it's really drive me crazy!! Eventhough U have said oral sex is not a risk, probably I'll do the test as assurance. Wish me the best & I'll share it whenever I did the test. Thank U again!!
Buddy your risk was not low, it was zero. If you want to keep testing this is your call but you should be made aware of the risks of having needless HIV tests. Testing for HIV is not infallible. Sometimes unexpected results are returned and some people test positive even though they have not got HIV. This is called a false positive, it happens, I have seen it happen and it is well documented it happens. If it happens they effects can be devastating and can take time to sort out.
Like I said this is your call, if I was you I would put this to bed and walk away. The only HIV concern you have is the one you are fabricating in your own head.
You're fine, from my reading of other forums and extensive reading on posts over here from @apollo and @blokecalledkev symptoms can never be an indicator of HIV. ORAL sex poses no risk of HIV transmission
Appollo & Kevin, thank U for your reply. I did another round of antibodies rapid test yesterday (57 days after exposure) & the result is -ve. I'll do another round of test at the 13th week & hopefully the result will be the same. Wish me the best & will update again once I've take another round of test..
You have already been advised of the risk of having needless HIV tests and you have also been advised you were not at a risk of an HIV infection. Buddy this is now call, if you wish to continue with this needless HIV drama then really there is nothing further you can be offered on any board.
