whatever "symptoms" you are experiencing, are NOT hiv related. you were NEVER at risk...no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Hi Lizzie, thank you for your response. You say i was never at risk but I have even read that there is a small risk of infection. My biggest concern is this rash I have which is not normal and 3 weeks after what I think was a risky situation. Can you tell me that there is 100% no risk in my case? Sorry to be a pain.
Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in
preventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct
and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually
transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases.
While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection
is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical
cancer, an HPV-associated disease. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that latex condoms provide an essentially impermeable barrier to particles the size of STD pathogens.
Dear Teak, many thanks for your answer. What about putting my finger in my mouth. after I put my finger in her vagina, does this carry a risk? Why else would i have a raised brown rash on my back? This is what is scaring me. Thank you !
What about them. NO RISK.
Hi, had a 28 day test yesterday, came back negative. Should i go back for a 3 month test? Is this not conclusive and if not conclusive why? I just find so many varying opinions.
Many thanks !
you were never at risk and do not need further testing.
why is a 28 day test not conclusive? the current guideline clearly states that a conclusive test result is obtained at 3 months post exposure.
Hi Lizzie, sorry for being a bit silly but are you saying that I should go at three months for a conclusive result?
RE-READ THE FIRST SENTENCE IN MY COMMENT...GEEEEEEEEEZ
you asked a question about a 28 day test and i answered it. at no point did i tell you that you needed to test at 3 months.
