I know your first thought is that you probably answer this question once a day, but it is worth my $15 to see your answer directly to me.
I'm now 27 and am pregnant. I have been married four years. When I was 20 (yes, 7 years ago) I had one unprotected sex incident with a guy in college. He was a white, non drug user. College athlete, so he may have even had routine HIV tests. I've actually seen the guy recently, and he looks perfectly healthy. Within a few days, I had the flu. Granted, this was in January so I guess that wasn't too unusual. I may have even had a "flu swab" done that confirmed influenza--its been 7 years, so I can't remember. Anyway, at some point I read about flu symptoms after HIV exposure and the possibility of this has stayed in my mind ever since. My husband's encounters were few and all protected before we married.
Of possible note, four years ago, I acquired a skin MRSA infection from my gym. It was treated incorrectly (with Penicillin) and actually ended up getting in my bloodstream. This meant a brief hospital stay under the care of an Infectious Diseases physician. Of course, I thought SURE she was going to diagnose me as HIV positive at any moment. Well, it didn't happen. I never consented to an HIV test, so I have no idea if one was done or not then. She did declare me "perfectly healthy" after the episode based on extensive blood work. This infection cleared up immediately with the correct antibiotic. My annual physical CBCs are always normal (except my white count was of course significantly elevated during that one episode)..PAPs normal..Sed and CRP rates normal, although I've only had that one done once.
Can I relax and enjoy my pregnancy and not worry too much over this HIV test that I know I have coming up? Is it very unlikely that I am infected at this point?? Thank you. It will just help me to hear the opinion of an expert.
