|test negative 4 times could i still be at risk ?
Oct 9, 2009
One year ago I had sex with someone who just found out that he's HIV positive. He's insisting that I'm the one who infected him because he only had sex with me and his girlfriend (who he state is negative). I had sex with him in October of 2008 since that date I have taken 4 HIV test.One within 3 wks of our initial contact (which was negative) another within 6 months one within 8months and another a few days ago all were negatives. Should I believe my test results are should I be worried? I am scared because I am also involved with someone and the thought of me infecting him is killing me. I have no symptom of the virus.

Your four negative HIV tests out to 12 months from your last sexual contact with the creep who is accusing you of infecting him are definitive and conclusive. You are HIV negative. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted. Your "ex" is either disingenuous or a total whack job.
As always, I recommend safer sex (condoms) for penetrative sex with all sex partners to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancies, not to mention untruthful accusations from crazed ex-lovers.
