You never had an HIV exposure and you are not having ARS.
HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
wow that's great service...hi I understand what you are saying about condoms and I would not have give it a second thought if it were not for these strange symptoms that seem to mimmick ARS ..Are condoms really that efficient that you can basically say as long as you wear a condom you need not worry about hiv
Yes condoms are that effective. If you are concerned about your symptoms see your doctor, they have nothing to do with HIV.
thanks....can you tell me if my symptoms were due to ARS would a test 4 weeks after onset of symptoms produce a positive antibody test,,,,i have heard ARS typically lasts for a week or two, could it linger for over a month and does a duo test pick up all strains of hiv including subtype e wich is prevalent in Thailand and arguably easier to pass on
although I would love to believe that sex with a condom puts you at no risk for hiv,,that notion is not universally accepted..many would say condoms will reduce risk but are not 100 %...so I would say there is a hiv risk,,maybe a small risk but still a risk.....I can bet there are thousands of people out there who used protection and still acquired hiv who are angered at the general notion that wearing a condom is foolproof...I just don't think its as black and white guys
Then go talk to the people who are uneducated about HIV transmission and condom use.
hey no offence its just my opinion...will post my 99% "conclusive" 12 week results for the 6 week/12 week debaters and the !00% foolproof condom debaters and I pray to sweet jesus that my swollen lymphs are all in my mind and you are right
Save it, you never had an exposure.
hope you are right...thanks guys it will keep me from going insane
You and I are on the same boat, my elisa at 5 weeks and 3 days came negative. Since I did not have a risk (no penetration) am relaxed. Ofcourse using condoms correctly and consistently would avoid hiv infection. As you hav used condoms, hence relax, ur 6 week result is never going to change unless and until if you indulge in another risky activity. Take care.
Move on and stop spamming the forum.
