You need to post your question on Doctors Forum. They charge $20 fees.
The best way to know if you contracted HIV is to get tested. However, the chances are less. usually for men its like 1 in 2000 exposures.
Not HIV rash. HIV rash appears 2-4 weeks post exposure, and is not itchy. 3-5 seconds wouldnt be worrisome. Get tested at 6 weeks, then 3 months. I am confident you will be NEGATIVE.
Thank you. I didn't know about the fees part.
I just took a test. Now waiting for it.
I also went to a skin specialist for the rash. He told it could be pityriasis rosea.
I just gotten back my blood test results. I was given a clean bill of health, negative for HIV and other nasty STDs but I do have herpes simplex 1.
It's being 7th week since my exposure. Am I right to say it is conclusive? Or do I need to test again at the 3 month mark?
After this incident, I am really going make sure I practise safe sex from now on as HIV is really scarely and not fun, especially the waiting and worrying.
You need to test at 3 months to obtain a conclusive test result.
I will get tested at the 3 month mark. Hopefully things goes well. I really learnt my lesson now. Few seconds of pleasure for a life time of worries is not good.
Use condoms correctly and consistently and you won't have to worry about HIV and most STDs.
Yes. I agree with you. My exposure was a mistake on my part, I always use condoms.
Fingers crossed now, hope my next test will be negative as well.
