Yes, but fearing the HIV test isn't rational thinking. I guess it's possible that I may have been exposed sometime in my life because I didn't know the exact history of every woman I've been with, but I don't think it is likely ... and I've been fearing the test for 12+ years now.

Even if one was positive it would certainly make more sense to find out to start proper meds and no behave appropiately.

The test doesn't actually change your status, it just informs you of it. That being said, I'm still terrified of the test.

I wouldn't worry too much about being HIV + if you are heterosexual. The cases among heterosexuals is an extremely small percentage. As for flying - you are not alone there!

not worry about hiv if you are heterosexual..sounds like bad advice to me..you need to read some of the statistics on aids...heterosexual women are among the fastest growing group to be diagnosed with the aids virus....its not a gay thing anymore....whats up with you maree..this is the 2nd time i have seen you give out bad advice.....
