What was your exposure?

Giving oral and frottage
Giving oral and frottage are not risks for HIV and you did not need to test in the first place. The only risks for HIV include having unprotected vaginal or anal sex (penetration without condom) or sharing IV drug needles.  Air and saliva both inactivate the virus and are present with giving oral and frottage. So, there was no risk involved whatsoever with your exposure.  A  4th generation combo test is considered conclusive at 28 days and beyond and all other tests are conclusive at 90 days.
Thank you for the quick response GR! Greatly appreciate it. I was just worried because of urticaria I'm experiencing now.
HIV is never diagnosed by symptoms.  Risk assessments and testing is the only way to know.  And you had both no risk and confirming no risk, negative testing.  So, no worries about hiv. Good luck to you.
Thank you GR! More power to all of you for giving us peace of mind.
