In early Feb. I began dating a girl and practiced safe sex with her. We had the "std" talk, if you will, and she said she has had sex with 10 males and that some were one night mistakes. She said she had been tested occassionally, but not after a few of her encounters. My concern stems from the fact that I performed oral sex on her many times once I became comfortable (very stupid, I know).
We broke up in May and I just had an oraquik test performed on June 24th, which was negative. Unfortunately, I do not remember exactly when I began performing oral sex, so it is tough to say that it has been 3 months. I know for a fact that it has been since at least May 1 (this is being extra cautious) since I did because thats when we broke up so it was obviously sometime before that. What worries me is that my partner frequently complained of being tired for no reason and body aches, which in my mind (though probably a result of my fear) are signss of HIV.
To make things worse, the nurse at the testing center said that I had to wait 6 months for an accurate result because of HIV type 2, which "usually takes 6 months." I have always gone by 3 months, but is this a new finding? And going by May 1st, I suppose I was 55 days (again, a safe guess) past last exposure. Also, at my routine checkup I got bloodwork done and my doctor said my bloodcount looked "fairly reasonable" (he did not know of my HIV concern-just routine bloodwork) This isn't very reassuring since I believe HIV affects bloodcount? I am 21 and I would think my bloodcount would be great???
Should I go with this test and say conclusive? I am dating a new woman now and I cannot sleep with the thought that I could give HIV to her. At one point can I move on? Perhaps wait until August? Thank you so much for your time.
