I am almost sure we are finally getting the remainder of the story!!! Could this be the one that said "went down"....later said "received anal".....now we put it all togehter! Listen...whether or not this is you (I mean, it is you...but I mean the "you" I think you are) I think more than anything, you are feeling guilty and embarassed about the threesome....perhaps it wasnt' something that you were really comfortable with. I don't know if the anal was protected or not....so perhaps there is a risk. i think there is some confusion as to whether you tested or not....if you did (outside the 3 month mark) then the test was conclusive. If not, you should test as unprotected anal is a risk. That said....bowel issues are NOT indicative of HIV....they could just be a sign that you are a STRESSED OUT mess. So....once and for all...did you test?

loose stools for 7months so soon after possible infection would not be happening. More than likely to be anxiety since when the body is stressed it pumps more blood to the organs in the guy causing more chance of loose stools. Trust me, I have been there also.

Did you use protection during your encounter and did the person cum inside you?

Were you protected? Honestly, the bowel problems are from anxiety and stress, I would bet my bottom dollar. We all make mistakes or do things we regret....and that can play heavily on your mind. Get tested....it will ease your mind. And, to be honest...if (and that is a HUGE HUGE HUGE if) you were infected (which I bet you aren't) you should know so as to receive treatment...HIV is deadly if left unchecked....but with treatment you can live a long happy life.....But, again, I would bet you are fine...I don't think the bowels are from HIV..

Try not to dwell on the tests and keep yourself busy. Meet up with friends etc.

Exercise is a good form of distraction and makes you feel better both mentally and physically, thats why most people diagnosed with depression are told to do more exercise.

Yes, seven months is a long time....but like you will read here over and over.....no matter WHAT your symptom...it doesn't mean HIV...you can not diagnose HIV by symptoms because the symptoms are the same as a milliion other things. It isn't like you get pink and purple polka dots that ONLY happens with HIV and nothing else. I hope you are feeling better.....once you get your results you will feel so much better. Good luck and keep us posted.
