exposure
      #12327 - 11/15/00 08:49 PM

Last sept (1999), I found out my 2-year boyfriend was HIV +. I checked out OK. Last week, we saw each other and had unprotected sex - sort of rough and I started to bleed. I went to my MD for a test and am getting the results tomorrow. Pray for me - I was stupid and now I'm scared!!!

You're in my prayers for sure.

Don't want to scare you at all, but I would strongly recommend that you seek out the most experienced HIV Specialist you can find and make it clear that you want what ever emergency treatment (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) is available. Do this as soon as you possibly can! As far as I know most PEP treatments (used for needle stick and other similar risks) are most effective within 72 hours but a specialist may be able to advise on something.

Go to an after-hours clinic if necessary. I just say this so you can at least take advantage of any opportunities that may still exist because doing all you can 1 week after exposure is better than trying later. Rest assured that the drug therapies that are available these days, will allow you to live a long healthy life even if you are infected.

We all know the fears you are going through, most importantly talk to people - come to this board and chat, don't isolate or let your fears take control.

May God be with you.
