From what Dr. HHH has said 6 weeks is enough. Congrats to being neg!! :)
You have an overinflated idea of your "risk". Don't worry about it for a second.
I work in a specific healthcare field and got blood all over myself all the time despite wearing protective clothing. It's unavoidable in my field. From very questionable people. You do what you can, but in an emergency you have to act quickly and there isn't always time to suit up to the hilt.
HIV is NOT an easy disease to contract. If it were that simple, many many millions of healthcare workers would be infected from the exposures we all have, every day. I've had urine splashes in my mouth, blood splashes in my eyes, amniotic fluid drenching me, caught babies with my bare hands, etc etc over the course of the last 28 years.
People who work in the ER have even more exposures than I've had.
Chill, dude. Are you seriously considering sending the clothes out for testing? I hope you were kidding.
Thank you for putting it in perspective, I appreciate your insight.
The "risk" that you are describing wasn't even a risk. Do not, and I repeat, do not go get a PCR test for this. It is not appropriate in this situation, and is not warranted as you were not at any risk to begin with.
Besides, you have had a 6 week test, and it was negative. Beside the fact that you probably didn't need to worry about testing to begin with, this is all the proof that you need that you are just fine. You did not contract HIV from this incident, no doubt, no way. I am sure any doctor will tell you the same thing.
So, try to put all of this behind you. It is a worry that you do not need to have. Hope you are having a great new years, and take care of yourself.
Very good post peekawho. Thanks for that.
