Hey there,

I understand what you're going through. I'm in a similar situation (albeit the guy I was with said he was HIV-negative and had been tested, but I don't trust him since I got sick a few days afterwards) and the best advice I have for you is to go get tested.

I did the Elisa test a few days ago and I'm waiting for my response which should come on Monday. I totally understand how you feel... about just not being able to think about anything else. It's completely taken over my mind and I'm wracked with fear of the thought that I have HIV.

What I can take away from this experience is knowing to ALWAYS have safe-sex. And to wait. I'm too young, I realize, to be sexually active. Life is more than just sex, and that's hard for a teenager to understand with how the media affects our society. Not to mention, this whole ordeal has made me realize how AMAZING people with HIV are. How they truly are heros in combatting this disease. I have the highest respect and admiration for them. Their strength gives me strength.

So, the best thing I can tell you is to get tested. It's the only way to know for sure. I wish you the best of luck and I'll keep you in my prayers! =)

The overwhelming majority of people that are infected will test postive by 6 weeks. You have an 8 week negative, which in several European countries is conclusive.

Add to your 8 week negative the fact that neither protected anal or getting blow jobs are considered a risk for HIV transmission and one must wonder.....just what the hell are you worried about?
