A female with a question, is that ok? :)
Jun 2, 2007

Hi Dr. Bob, this is my first time on your forum, as I've been spending a lot of time in medhelp and heard about you there. I've talked to Doc HHH on there, he's been helpful, but I thought maybe another educated insight would be nice. I had unprotected oral sex, I gave, to completetion on a heterosexual male on the 30th of March. Three weeks later I had two glands swell in my neck, and two weeks after THAT I broke out in hives, which scared me promptly because I knew both were ARS. I know it was a little early, but knowing that most people serooconvert in a month I went and got an ELISA done at 5 weeks, which was negative. Then I waited four more weeks and recieved a negative rapid test at 9 weeks, still a bit short of 12, but my goodness was it encouraging. Do you really think I could seroconvert after this nine week negative result? I'll go get the test either way, but I wanted your opinion. I hope all is well, thank you for answering if you have the time.:)
