Hi, no testing was needed as you did not have any exposure. HIV is not transmitted by what you describe. You might post in the Herpes forum about this.
Thank you so much for such a speedy reply. After much research online, this definitely seems to be the consensus. However, some of my apprehension to accept this wholeheartedly is both doctors suggesting that there is a slim, but existent risk. Again, I am not arguing with your response. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.
We use the word "risk" and the risk is unprotected vaginal/anal sex insertive, sharing IV drug needles and mother to child. These are the proven "risk" activities.
Although our Expert forums are currently closed, you can still see and search threads there. Here's a thread that might interest/help you: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV---Prevention/Receptive-Oral-HIV-risk/show/2007210
Or, you can use the search function in that community and look for the term "meteorite." That will hopefully illuminate the take of Drs. Hook and Handsfield on this risk.
Thank you for the link. That helps to put the risk in perspective.
Quick question, why did you suggest that I mention this on the herpes forum? I was tested for HSV2 via a blood test, which was negative.
The symptoms of the low grade fever and such at 3 days post exposure is also a herpes symptom. Trying to give you possibilites. Testing would be 3 months post this exposure.
If you want to continue any herpes concerns post in the herpes forum.
Thank you, both my HIV and HSV2 tests were taken 14 weeks past exposure.
We are finding out that hsv1 is now transmitted via giving oral sex. But this discussion needs to be in the herpes forum.
I understand what you are saying. However, I am not concerned with HSV2 because I had a negative test result at 14 weeks after possible exposure (Over 3 months). Thanks for the input.
