Cut Question
      #176086 - 02/20/06 08:02 PM

A couple of days ago a girl that I just started seeing were fooling around after the bar. I noticed that when I was "playing" with her, a spot of one of my fingers would burn. I didn't think anything of it until afterwards when I noticed a small cut on my finger, probably due to fingernail clipping too close! I know that she tested Negative two months ago, but was with someone a month ago! I don't know of her current status so i'm freaking out. How big of a risk am I facing? Should I get tested or is it unwarranted?

Ease your mind. Talk with her and ask pertanant questions. go ahead and get tested. I'm not sure how soon something may show up. Then continue with retests from time to time. If all is negative, all is well. What this will do is settle your own self down a bit and if something does come up, it can be detected early.

Have you read how HIV is transmitted, if not maybe you should educate yourself on the forms of transmission which this was not one of.

chill out dude. the chances of you contracting HIV are Dramatically Low. Dont take a test wont be accurate. Wait three months and then take one IF you're still worried about it. i dont think you have ANYTHING to worry about man. Peace.
