If you are dating and he won't test for you now then you have to ask why. This is a subject that people who just start relations need to be open about and it is a good time to get him tested if needed. Perhaps he hasn't had any risk since his last test? If he can prove he is negative then that will save you testing.
After 28 days the 4th gen test will be conclusive. The RNA can give false positives.
Try to relax until your test, but I would get solid answers about his status now.
Ok its now day 17 since first risk and day 11 since second rish, and I woke up with tingling hands and feet that has persisted all day. I read that peripheral neuropathy is a sign of ARS and Im really scared! Im waiting to test at 28 days but this is really scary. How likely would it be that PN is my only ARS symptom?
Hi there I really think there Is not much to worry about here
If you would some early re assurance or answer
1) you can take ag/ab combo test at 3weeks
Then 4weeks we have never seen turn positive after that ag/ab combo
6 weeks if you want to be conservative for ag/ab combo
Do not ever go for 3months ! 6weeks is the end of all consertive things if you want to be 3months is old news
If you want early answer you can take ag /ab combo at 21 days . That I am Quite sure will ease the mind
Symptoms are mostly severe if they do occur :sever rash like chicken pox nobody will miss , severe sour throat and fever that no medicine anytime soon will go away
They start as early as 10 days . You don't have anything severe so nice ! And at 3 weeks if you feel okay you arnt having serous fever or rash all over your. Body where your family will say something is really wrong with you . You can be even more confident
I can understand your concerns.
I also had sex (protected) with a lady i met online. Unprotected oral and my crazy mind possibly thinks that the condom broke after the 3rd intercourse.
What made me crazy was her attitute after i asked her if she got ever tested.
She almost disappeared without answering my messages. I became paranoid. She was supposed to send me her previous tests but always used excuses. So i had a negative PCR at 8 days which now im very concerned that it was too soon.
Anyway. What i want to say is that i also deal with light OCD and fear for specific illnesses. I think its part of the explanation of our fears and terror. The majority of the people are operating differently and will never understand how our mind works.
I agree that you have put yourself in real danger but after you clear with this incident it is 100% sure that you will do it again.
Even if it wont be a real risk you will act like it was...
The problem is deeper but unfortunately during the "crisis" period we will never be able to realize it.
I think a PCR now would ease your mind. Time is enough for it.
3 weeks after first risk and 2 weeks after second, saw my dr who sent me for well check labs (not std ones) for my dizziness and fatigue, they came back with low hematocrit and hemoglobin, low vitamin b, and i had very low blood pressure, the next day i developed severe thrombosed external hemorrhoids and a bump on my vagina. Tomorrow I go to a rectal specialist and On friday I go to my gyn - i'll request a full std screening, at which point it will be exactly three weeks after last encounter. Im emotionally and physically drained at this point and in alot of pain from the hemorrhoids, worried about the anemia as its a sign of recent hiv infection. Im not sleeping anymore but i stay tired. This has been a long and trying month for me that i wouldnt wish on my worst enemy.
