please answer - hiv

i am a 26 year old male.
i had an unprotected vaginal sex once with a woman. 3 weeks later i took the combo test. it was negative.
with our next encounters with the same woman i put a condom, but sometimes my penis touched her vagina (with no penetration) before i put it on. also 1 time she put her finger in my mouth right after the finger was in her vagina.
my questions are:
1. are my chances for HIV exposure high?
2. how reliable is the combo test? can i feel just alittle optimistic until i take the ELIZA test?
3. i am circumcised. is this had any effect on the odds of getting HIV??

thank you in advance

You will need to test at 6-8 weeks for a good indacation of your status and follow up at 3 months for your conclusive result. As for the protected sex and touching fluids etc. your risk is zero.

If you want peace of mind until your test have her test for HIV if neg there is a good chance you will be as well.

Hope this helps

You need to start your own thread and we will be able to answer your questions, But as for a short answer.

You had unprotected sex and this means you were put at risk of HIV. When she tested Neg. she could of been in the window period. Have her test again for peace of mind and you should test as well in 3 months time just to be sure.

Always use condoms until you are both tested and 100% sure of your status
