You had PROTECTED sex therefore you had NO RISK and do NOT need to test.
Your runny nose sounds like you may have allergies. It has absolutely nothing to do with HIV or any STD.
It was probably just a VERY slight abrasion from the rubbing of the condom during sex, (either anal or oral) and the alcohol would, indeed, cause it to sting.
YOU HAD NO RISK!
I know you said I had no risk, but I had already done the blood and went to get me results today.
I was negative. Which is expected. But the concern that I and my doctor had was my low WBC number. I was coming off of a runny nose, like stated earlier,but my WBC count was well below the normal range.
My last possible exposure to HIV would was Jan 14th and my lab test was on March 28th. Is that conclusive enough of a test?
Also the doctor asked for another blood test in 2 weeks to check the WBC count. is this cause for concern regarding any delayed response to HIV?
thank you again,
Again...........all of your encounters were protected, including the oral. You never had a risk for HIV OR STD's.
Your last test, which was totally unnecessary, would of course be negative because you had no risk.
Please accept the fact you are HIV-
A low end WBC can be the result of so many things, there is not room to write them all. Even people with HIV (which YOU do not have) are more concerned with their T-cells than their WBC's.
Your doctor is simply checking your WBC count again to see if it has stabilized to within normal range and has nothing to do with checking for HIV. If it remains low, he will do further checking for a possible infection. I have arthritis and chronic sinus infections and my WBC is almost always low. That you had a runny nose for two MONTHS sounds exactly like my sinus infections which keep MY WBC's low.
If your anxiety level remains high, when you see your doctor for the results of your second blood draw, please discuss your HIV concerns with him at that time. He will also reassure you that you had no risk.
Please try to calm down.
I'm glad to read you are moving on from a risk you never had. Fear and yes, guilt, can fill us with anxiety. You can lay both of those down now.
We ALL make mistakes because we're human and if we're smart, we learn from them and become even smarter! I'm SO smart, I scare myself! LOL
Enjoy your peace
