Am I infected or just getting paranoia?
Feb 21, 2010
I met this lady sometimes in Nov. 2009, and we started dating. We had about 15 (protected and unprotected) sexual intercourse, I performed 2 unprotected cunnilingus on her, both in the month of Jan. 2010. On feb. 8th 2010, she tested positive for hiv, and on feb 12th 2010, i tested negative. Am very scared and can't stop thinking it's just a matter of time that i'll turn out positive??? pls help.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Unprotected sex does place you at some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. Your negative HIV test in February is encouraging, but not conclusive. You'll need follow-up tests at three and six months from the date of last exposure.
Please note, you broke Dr. Bob's two cardinal rules:
Cardinal Rule #1: We must always consider that all our sexual partners could be HIV infected and therefore take all the necessary precautions to prevent the transmission of the virus.
Cardinal Rule #2: Always remember Cardinal Rule #1.
Try to stay calm. There is nothing you can do at this point other than wait . . . and learn from this experience!
