Pleaseee,,,,at least give me advice

Aug 28, 2002

ok..second time desperate for some kind of direction...ive been involved with hiv+ woman for about 2 months...i tested neg before my involvment...i too am female...we have had oral sex on numerous occasions...and about 2 weeks ago had an incidence (without going into details) where she got cut and a generous amount of her blood got in my mouth. I know shes not had treatment...her viral load is over 10,000 (last check) and her tcell is between 400 & 600 (last check). can you tell me the risks of my becoming infected and when i will be able to know?...are there any pre-signs of infection?...ive been overly tired lately, scratchy throat, snuffy nose.. I know im just overly worried as well...but PLEASE at least give me some advice!!!!

Response from Mr. Kull

Having mucous membrane contact with HIV infected blood puts you at significant risk for infection. It's important to talk with a doctor (preferably one experienced with HIV) about your risk and explore options for early detection and the possibility treatment if you are infected.


I'm at the end of my rope, begging for your help!
