please respond...i'm super anxious
Your risk is low, oral sex carries only a small risk for transmission and the fact that he didn't ejaculate in your mouth makes the risk almost zero. The symptoms you describe from five years ago were indeed mono considering you tested positive for it. Go to your doctor and have a test done to put this out of your mind. It will be negative though.
thank you for commenting, i am too nervous about getting a test done for fear it may be positive (even tho it probably isn't) but i would like to think that after five years something funny would show up on my bloodtests to concern the drs..i don't know why all of the sudden i am nervous about this now
I can understand your situation. It requires lots of nerves power to submit a blood sample, wait and then collect the results. But everything pays off when you see a word "Non Reactive" or "negative" on it.
However in your case, 5 years is hell of a long period. You would have been very sick if you were really positive. Considerable damage occur to the immune system in 5 yeas in most of the cases. As you have mentioned, lot of blood tests has ran for different reasons, your physician would have been alerted looking some abnormalities (like very low lymphocytes or low WBC or likewise) in your blood chemistry and definitely ordered more tests for you for further screening, which he did not. So you have no reason to worry about. However if you really make up your mind for an antibody test, it will certainly be negative and will take you out of this situation permanently.
thank you for your comment, where do you all get your information from? i'm not saying that anyone is wrong, but i'm just asking because i'd like somewhere else to refer to as well...unless you have recieved this info from your doctors
I am not a doctor and neither this was an advice for me from my doctor. Based on the knowledge we picked up here on the forum, I wrote these comments. Of course, final word has to come from your consulting doctor, who knows your case better than anybody else does, and his knowledge would be case specific and more accurate.
5 years (you probably would have noticed by then)! Also protected sex is protected sex (no risk)! also oral is no risk regardless. So five years and no risks equals no risk. No need to test, but you can do it and get a conclusive negative, because 3 months is the conclusive point and you are way past that!
