Do I have HIV ?

Hello , I recently had sex for the first time last May.
I am a 17 year old male and I had sex with a girl I knew for about a year.
The thing is she didn't recommend me to use a condom because she was on birth control.
I also came inside of her because it was too late to pull out.
I know I should've used a condom, she isn't pregnant but I'm worried if I have HIV and the chance of catching it since I released inside her.
I have no clue if she is HIV positive or negative & I can't ask her because we no longer speak to each other.
It's been on my mind a lot and I'm really scared.
I would really appreciate your feedback

Re: Do I have HIV ?

Its unlikley she has HIV but the only way to confirm your status is to take a test 3 months from your last exposure.

I hope that helps

Re: Do I have HIV ?

Do you know the probability that I caught it from her?

Re: Do I have HIV ?

Well she has to have HIV in the first place before you can get anything and less than 1% of the population have HIV so i really dont belive she would have HIV and have HIV and not know about about it. Also a one time exposure is very unlikley to result in HIV transmission, so really i would not be that concerned.

If it helps you can take a test from 6 weeks from your last exposure and that test will be 99% conclusive. A rapid test where you get results in 15 minutes might the best option for you?

Re: Do I have HIV ?

Hi,

Buddy whether you came inside her or not it makes no difference to your risk. It was actually very small and it is very unlikely you have contracted HIV from this. To be on the safe side you should test out as advised. And please mate, condoms are really cheap, start to use them ok?

Kevin.

Re: Do I have HIV ?

So I'm unlikely I have HIV correct?
Can people with HIV be prescribed birth control in the first place?

Re: Do I have HIV ?

Your risk is close to zero. The fact that she was prescribed birth control is irrelevant.
