exposure and im scared

hi everyone,
I'm completely terrified, I met up with my ex about a month ago and we had sex (i'm a top). We did a little foreplay then he sat on me. We started kissing then he lifted up and put my penis on his hole and slid down on it. He told me he got tested a few months ago and was negative. I know i shouldn't have believed him. He had just broke up with his current boyfriend. After about 2 to 3 minutes of being inside him i pulled out and put a condom on. two weeks pass and i get a phone call from him crying saying that he just found out that his ex that he broke up with gave him HIV... Now i'm scared ******** and worried for myself. I went to cvs and got one of the at home hiv tests, and the result was negative. a few days pass and i go to the Dr. again that result was negative. I'm going crazy worrying. I don't think I can wait the full 3 months to get tested again. I'm so scared somebody help me. I feel like such a dumb ***

Re: exposure and im scared

Your tests were too early to be meaningful. Try to find a clinic that offers 4th generation testing (DUO). At 4 weeks the result will be highly accurate. Or else you can test at 6 weeks with an antibody test. Either result would be a good indication of your status. You will need to follow up with a final antibody test at 3 month as you seem to know.

Other than that, there isn't much that we can tell you, as you seem to know that you had a high risk exposure. Your situation illustrates why it isn't safe to rely on someone's word about their HIV status.

Re: exposure and im scared

It's been 6 weeks now, when i got tested it was about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I'll Make an appointment in the morning. I hope I don't have it. I don't know what I'd do.

Re: exposure and im scared

Your life isnt or wont be over what ever the outcome.

Take the advice from Joggen. Test at 4 weeks and lets see what the outcome is then buds.

Re: exposure and im scared

At 3 months your tests are conclusive, you do not have HIV. Let this go and get on with your life buddy.
