Okay, I was stupid and curious and went to one of those "massage places". After the worst massage of my life the therapist asked if I would like "anything else". I gestured to a tip I had already left out. It must have been too much because it resulted in her gently, but directly, rubbing our genitals together. (no penetration even remotely occurred)
This was more then I wanted, I asked her to stop after no more then 5 seconds, and we went our separate unhappy ways. I was only slightly worried about STD's until 26 days later when I developed a sore throat and swollen lymphnodes. NO fever, no rash, etc.
The sore throat lasted several weeks with no new symptoms, I went to my doctor and he felt that while I was stupid I did not place myself at risk. He diagnosed Mononucleosis and confirmed with a monospot test. I found that recent HIV infections can cause a positive monospot test and called him, he still refuses to consider HIV infection. So I have conducted several test on my own.
I have had the following tests done:
Day 26 Full STD panel plus HIV DNA PCR -NEGATIVE
DAY 38 Finger stick rapid test -NEGATIVE
Day 48 Finger stick rapid test -NEGATIVE
Day 49 HIV DNA PCR and HIV 1/0/2 antibody test -NEGATIVE
Day 56 finger stick rapid test -NEGATIVE
Fully intend on testing out to 13 weeks.
I have read many posts but feel that I am still quite ignorant in assessing my risk and potential status and was hoping for some advice so I can start to breath again.
What risk did I place myself in?
What are the odds I am infected?
What are the accuracy of the above tests at the dates listed?
Well HIV is passed on as Joggen has said, so its clear you didnt have a risk, but i wanted to add, even if you had a risk you really do not need to test as much as you did. One test at 3 months is the only one that matters, a 6 week test will give you a good indication of your status. You ran the risk of a false postive but i cannot understand why a clinic would allow you to take so many tests when you never had a risk.
So for the future, if you do ever have a risk dont test like you have, their really is no need.
