this is kinda complicated,but i am indeed in need of help here..totally depressed
so,exactly 46 days ago.. i had sex with a girl,i did oral to her and i have this cut inside my mouth from my dental brace.also,we engaged in unprotective sex for about 2 minutes,then i put on a condom and ejaculated inside her (with a condom) 2 weeks later..i found out that she is hiv positive,after a brief look at the internet and lack of sleep and tons of stress,i am hospitalized because of the high fever,doctor said that i was tired.the fever lasted for 2 days..after getting out of the hospital,im sweating like crazy everytime and had an extreme fatigueness and blurry vision...on day 40 my fatigue just disappeared,then i went to the hospital and performed an HIV test,it was an HIV 1/2 Test..the kit was produced by Standard Diagnost.Inc..i dunno which generations is it,or the name for the kit (ELISA,DUO etc) i remembered the nurse took my blood from my vain,and the sample went in an (i dunno... "mixing machine"?) then she mixes the sample with some kind of liquid,then dripped it to the kit...the result was made in 15mins,and it was negative...my question are..
1. 41 DAYS TEST,DO YOU THINK ITS A GOOD SIGN?
2. CAN ANYBODY PLEASE EXPLAIN THE MEANING OF SECOROVERSION? I AM ACTUALLY CONFUSED FROM IT,IS IT A NAME FOR HIV SYMPTOMS?
3. ALSO,AM REALLY DEPRESSED RIGHT NOW..PLEASE ANY OF YOU,SHARE UR INFOS WITH ME..I CANT SLEEP AND I LOST ALL MY MOOD FOR ALMOST EVERYTHING OTHER THAN READING POST
THANK U SO MUCH FOR READING AND SORRY FOR THE BAD ENGLISH..PLEASE REPLY
1. 41 days, i.e. almost 6 weeks, is indeed a good sign. Ideally a 6 week negative is extremely unlikely to change. Get a conclusive test done at the 12th week mark and move on.
2. Serconversion is that time when an individual's status changes from negative to positive. In other words, when one becomes negative.
3. Nothing much to help you with depression and lack of sleep. The depression will disappear when you see you conclusive negative result.
thank u,bro.. also i want to ask a few more thing..do u think the serconversion will happen after 41 days? my muscle is aching now...also my left hand joints..i also wanna ask,do u know the type of my test? this web is very helpful..thank u all
6 weeks is a bit long for seronversation to take place. As i said earlier, a 6 weeks test is a good indicator of your status and is unlikely to change. Take conclusive test at 12 weeks. As far as you joint pains, they could be because of anything, hiv cannot be diagnosed by symptoms.
Your test is highly unlikely to change at this point, which means you probably got lucky. Repeat a standard antibody test at 3 months for your conclusive result...and from now on, use condoms from start to finish.
thanks so much for replying again...at_ss & nurse
you guys are good people,and really helpful..i cant thank u guys enough...
before this post,things were very ugly..when all of my friends talk and laugh about stuff...i pretend to laugh and listen when all i can think is "am i infected" "am i okay?" "i think my muscle aching again,what will my parents think if i am really infected..they are too old to hear this kind of bad news" "i am so sorry for them,they loved me so much but all i can do is f*ck things up" :((((((
but reading your replies,really gives me a lot of peace in mind...
i have a few more questions...if u are willing to reply again..because i dunno who i should talk with in times like this..u guys are really the only person i can share and talk to..i already went to psychiatrist to talk and share..twice,but im running out of money to go there again..please answer my next questions
