First, I would like to thank you all for your invaluable service to the community. Providing in depth and current knowledge for those concerned regarding their risks for HIV. So, I will start with my situation:
I am a homosexual male, I started dating another male in November of 2008. I was HIV tested 10/25/2008- the result was subsequently negative. During the course of the six weeks of dating this guy, we discussed HIV status, and he stated he was negative. We slept together over the course of dating, and two of these times I did not use a condom. I was topping. The final time was 12/8/2008, following this last time....two weeks pass and my sexual partner calls me to tell me he is HIV+,(I never had his semen in my body in anyway, nor do I remember blood on my penis following these incidents. So, I recieve a test following this news 12/26/2008, which was negative, my 6 week test on 1/19/2009 was subsequently negative as well. I know you all say with 95% certainty, the 6 week test is accurate and you suggest follow up testing. I would like to know:
1-How many follow-up tests do you suggest for my situation?
2-And can my anxiety be relieved knowing my 6 week test was negative? I am a healthy male, no other health problems or drug abuse-all clear physical. I have not had any febrille illness, just a cough- I do smoke, no lymph node swelling at any location on my body, or any other further symptoms- which I remember both of you saying symptoms are a horrible indication of ARS.
Again, thank you!
