Dear Doctor,

I had sex with a prostitute in dubai which was 2 weeks ago, but when we were having sex my condom broke she push me back and gave me a new condom then we contd with the intercouse....i believe i was unprotected for about 30 seconds to a min, after a week i developed a dry throat.

The lady told me not to worried since she is a working lady and does this only 2 times in a week,

what are my chances of getting HIV?
Can i get tested after 25 days or should i wait for 3months..

The CDC wedsite said even a 25days result accurate, is this true?

waiting for your prompt reply

You can't use symptoms to diagnosis HIV. They never match up and are often too non-specific.
Have to wait the 3 months and test.

can i get these symptoms by just thinking about it everyday???

I am so scared to get tested, what is its positive???what will i do??how will i face my mom and girl and everyone????

i hate myself..

You can concern yourself with that when you test and "if" you test positive.

i still wonder if i can contract hiv if i was unprotected for 30 seconds to a min

probably not, unless youre very unlucky.
if teh woman is hiv pos and depending on certain circumstances, u have a 1 in 1000 chance of catching it -  as a calculated average.

30 seconds in a single exposure? I would guess you have a beter chance of winning the lottery.

Anyway get tested at 8 weeks and then 12.   8 is a good indicator and 12 is conclusive.

your condom failed...you test at the appropriate time.

we cant tell you whether or not you were infected...only a test will do that.

Dear All,

I got tested again, but this time it was a (HIV 1 & 2 antibody &P24 Antigen test) which came back negative after 10 weeks and 2 days, the doctor told me that nowdays the test are very accurte specially the P24 antigen...(not sure what that means)..

Do you think this can change 7 day later??
Avatar universal
no it will not change in 7 days
Avatar universal

why do people say 3 months will be conclusive...?? does that mean the anitbody may show up a day later if tested is conducted at 10 weeks and if it 3 months it will not because its 3 months????

Don't get it...!

3 months is the guidelines set by the FDA and manufacture of the tests. So it is proven that 3 months is conclusive. But tests are very sensitive these days so the outcome is not going to change in a handful of days.

so Should i Move on??
