Questions, What Should I Do?

Hi, I'm new here. I have a question as to what I should do with testing. I had two risk encounters. Or what I think we're risk.

The first, I had unprotected male to male sex, being the receptive one. This guy said the last time he hooked up with a guy was in about March 2012 and that was only receptive oral sex. And he had been tested for HIV in October 2012, testing negative. He supposedly has a gf. Now, I know, I should not have trusted him, and I sure should've used a condom. In hindsight, it was stupid. This was November 2012. I was gonna get tested at 3 months then 6 months. But then, a month later, I was stupid again. I had sex with another guy, but this time he had a condom, and he was only inside for literally 1 minute at most. I snapped into some common sense. But when he was putting on the condom, I think the outside touched his precum a little, he flipped it, then put it on. I don't know how long exactly he was outside of me with possible precum on the outside of the condom. This was December 2012.

But my question is, should I push my testing plans back to where it'll be 3 months after my 2nd encounter? Or just keep it 3 months after my 1st encounter. And was my 2nd encounter really a risk?

Re: Questions, What Should I Do?

Hiya, your second encounter was not any risk at all.

Your exposure in november requires testing. A 3 month test will be conclusive, you will not need to test beyound that. You can take a test at 6 weeks for a good indication of your status.

Re: Questions, What Should I Do?

So even though there was precum (maybe) on the outside of the condom, it's okay? I read the virus becomes ineffective when it hits the air. But how long does it have to stay in the air?

Re: Questions, What Should I Do?

Its unlikley you even had a ny precum but even if you did, once exposed to air the virus becomes inactive. Hiv is very unstable, so its just not a risk at all.
