i do have health anxiety and obsessive thoughts, and i do see someone for it, however i was looking for some help here too.
i tested negative almost 4 months after my exposure of protected sex with an ex gf, and i just cant get over doubting my test results. this result was in a clinic with a rapid test and before that i had taken 5 rapid in home tests all negative as well. i jut cant relax and let this go. im pretty sure i remember the nurse saying if there was no risk in he last three months the test would be conclusive.
the whole 3% after three months is really getting to me. im in a relationship now and i could not live with myself if i ever transfered anything to my gf now she is so amazing. everyone here says that 3 months is conclusive but 3% is hardly conclusive thats a lot of people that would be missed, maybe thats old info? i dont know id just love to see the cdc come out and say this is conclusive ya know? the odd thing is my gf isnt worried about it but i am.
Well im a little lost, why are worring about a test when protected sex is not a risk of HIV, dont you think you should entertain that fact first.
Also, modern tests are 99.9% accurate after 3 months and lets not forget, less than 1% of the population have HIV. Put all this together, its just impossible you have HIV and more so the fact you were never even at risk of HIV.
"Low risk" accounts for the chance of breakage and slippage. If a condom doesn't break or slip off, then it's no risk. Your condom didn't break or slip off, so you had no risk. An intact condom is 100% effective, no exceptions.
