Sexual Assualt, HIV testing, depression.
      #213515 - 10/31/06 06:37 AM

I'll be brief; Straight, happily married guy, living in London UK. Sexually assualted about 6 months ago. Been tested for STI's TWICE all back as negative. Tested for HIV @ 28 days DUO Ag\Ab and again @ 87 days with a rapid bloodtest Ab, beleive it was Abbott Determine, both HIV tests come back as Negative. So far so good. HIV tests were done with Dr fully registered with the GMC and Healthcare Commission and a clinical expertise in mens sexual health (good bloke as well - didn't overwhelm me with medical jargon, or give me the lecture's etc, etc).

Here's the rub; I've since been treated with clincical depression, severs stress anxiety, etc, etc. As a result my blood pressure has gone through the roof - had some more bloods taken this morning now i'm s******g myself that i'm the one who will seroconvert later. My questions such as they are are this;

1) am I going mental?
2) What are the chances of being HIV poz now?
3) Is what I'm feeling and going through normal?

I don't really care what happens to me, but i do care about my wife and would die if I had put her at risk.

Just hope someone out there has any advice, even if it's just to say move on!!!

U need to move on. Did u take another blood test for HIV in particular this morning or just other regular stuff. The DUO test seems to be exxtremely good tool to detect early infection.
Take care

Your test results are conclusive, however it is common for people to have to deal with a lot of emotional fallout after a sexual assualt.

Have you sought counseling?

just had the result of my blood works back. It's all good!

I don;t think I'll be back here as I now need to move on from being obsessed about HIV.

Thank's to all, who posted and who viewed. My thought are with you all poz and neg alike.
