Response from Dr. Frascino
Unprotected insertive vaginal sex with a woman confirmed to be HIV infected does place you at risk for STDs, including HIV. Symptoms are notoriously unreliable in predicting who is and is not infected.
Your negative fourth generation HIV tests, including p24 antigen EIA at 8, 11, 13, 16 and 20 weeks are extremely encouraging. In my personal experience I have not seen anyone with your history who tests repeatedly negative out to 20 weeks seroconvert to HIV positive at the six-month mark. However, my personal experience does not change the guidelines! The CDC recommends that anyone with a significant exposure (you qualify) to someone confirmed to be HIV infected get HIV-antibody tests at both the three- and six-month marks. So if you want the CDC stamp of approval that you definitively and conclusively dodged the HIV bullet, you'll need one last HIV-antibody test at the six-month mark.
As for additional workup for other STDs, your local health department, STD clinic or private physician should be able to screen you for these common ailments.
Finally, even though your girlfriend has the hots for me, I promise I'm not a threat. Not only am I already legally married, I'm also gay.
Good luck and hug that sexy girlfriend of yours from me, OK?
