There's a lot of detail there, and I'm not sure I absorbed it all. You describe low risk exposures, plus negative HIV tests, both you and your girlfriend. Don't let a single case report of a rare HIV circumstance make you think such things are common. It also is unreasonable to suppose some partner intentionally infected someone else with HIV. Careless transmission occurs all the time, but intentional transmission is extremely rare.
Just make sure you have had a final HIV test at least 6 weeks over your last possible exposure. When it is negative, you are home free. So is your girlfriend.
Good luck-- HHH, MD
I also forgot to mention. I did have this chest pain when I was hit hard in my chest 5 years ok. But I was weight lifting and I was using free weights and when I cant hold it I would let it fall hard on my chest, once I started doing Pushup that is when I feel this small pain. I do have muscle ache time to time as well. mostly when I am worried or when I am on the Ship. Does HIV cause Muscle ache?? I have been to the Doctor and he assured me I dont have it and even if I had sex with a girl who had it the possible chance of me getting it is still very slim. Is this true?? I know I am a worrier, I have anxiety and I have OCD as well. The girl I am worried about I met her 11months ago. My GF who I met 2 days after her tells me that I am fine and stop worrying my doctor tells me the same thing. But finally I will get tested again. I have had many anxiety attacks and it caused me a lot of pain and I cant focus. But when I some how convince myself I am clean, I am all happy and cheerful and nothing in my body hurts or bother me at all. But when I read something online I worry and I start having problems again.
Your symptoms mean nothing. Only the test result matters. You seem to realize your symptoms likely result from anxiety, nothing more. But if in doubt, check with a provider. (Even on ship, I'll bet you can rely 100% on the confidentiality of the medical personnel, both med techs and docs. Trust me, they have heard your story many times!)
Dr Bob at the Body uses 3-month as the period for a conclusive result. I have read that you have great regards for him. so this 6-week is how reliable?
Yes I did get tested it was only one time where I practice a quick unprotected sex, then I met my GF who I always have unprotected sex. But I tested Negative at 6weeks after exposure and my GF tested 2 times, one at 11wks and the other one at 8 months because we plan on getting married so we have to get tested. I met her a 9 days after my exposure. Yes I know I have anxiety it is something that I cant get rid of. I did check with my Doctor and he assured me I was fine 3 times already, it is just my mind set. I will test again because the military requires us to get tested every year, I am nervous I should have asked question instead of giving you my story.
I met my GF 9 days after the first girl and we have unprotected sex every weekend for 8months, she got tested and she is negative at 11wks and 8months after meeting me. Is it still possible that I could have got sick from my first encounter and she is ok?? I did test negative at 6 weeks but I havent tested since then.
The Girl before her Only has Unprotected sex 1 time for a few minutes how likely is it that she caught it and gave it to me?? The girl and I have Unprotected sex for 45 sec.
The girl I messed with Before she claims she was clean before me even now she does, should I believe her?? She also was concerned if I was sick as well but I assured her I was good. I know I am good because I got tested 4 months before her and after that I used condoms. So I guess we were both in doubt of each other. We are sort of friends as well.
I heard that when you first get infected you can spread it very easily afterwards. I do believe my muscle pain is anxiety because when I worry about something serious certain arm muscles hurt and I my head feels heavy. Yes you are right SIR, I should not pay attention to News report, it was the actual first time I ever heard of HIV like that before so I freaked out. Thank you for your comfort I really appreicate it a lot.
