Hello there, I had a somewhat unsafe encounter with a female friend of mine a while back. We were both drunk and she put me inside of her briefly. I was scared, so i found a condom and we continued. Soon after, i felt (emotionally) horrible and decided to get tested. I received rapid oral testing at 14, 56, 77, and 92 days. All test results came back negative. I have seen no symptoms, no fever, though about week 8 i had a cold, (no fever) and week 14 i think* i had an allergic reaction to something i ate and had red itchy blotches. They died down soon. (I'm an african american male). Im very scared, and my worry has began to consume me. Should i continue testing? I appreciate what you are doing Dr, and i too will make a donation to your cause. Thank you so much for your help.

Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 92 days are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No further testing is warranted.
Stop worrying and start WOO-HOOing.
Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). It's warmly appreciated.
Be well. Stay well.
