Paranoid or good reason?
      #232512 - 10/16/07 08:22 PM

After last time's test, I was determined to never have to go through it again. However, I failed.

I got together with a new partner who was not promiscuous. Somehow ended up with unprotected sex twice.

So, the deal is...
I was cleared completely (7weeks after exposure of giving unprotected oral to HIV- male)

He has had unprotected sex with two women in the past.
One was a virgin so doesn't matter (they were in a long term r/s)
One had been tested before she slept with him, tho he is not sure if she slept with anyone inbetween and what she got tested for, and he only slept with her a couple of times.

Neither he nor she is high risk (i.e. no drugs, both hetero)

Realistically, what is my risk? I have booked in for a test as I'd rathr know for sure, and he is too, but still... I need to get this off my mind! Surely the chances of her passing it on to him would've been a lot lower anyway, so it's more difficult for him to have caught it from one person?

Please help....

As I read your post I am wondering. You truly beleive that anyone telling you their sexual history to be accurately and honestly transcribed to you?? I think for some that honesty is lacking and I would not trust someone who says they did so and so, with or without protection. If you had unsafe sex, thats just it, its unsafe. Testing is warrented, I dont care what the other party claims. I would not trust someones good word on my life....

Just sayin,


Eric

I might have missed the point on this one...

Call me silly. But this person knows I am paranoid and have anxiety issues as it is. So I asked him to please put the truth to me rather than what I wanted to hear. So yes, I am indeed inclined to believe him...
Testing tomorrow morning, rapid test (20mins).

Please pray for me.

kleintje,

Before i begin, " goodluck" for your upcoming test. Look, it would make a mother of difference if you practice safe sex, irrespective of how many partners you have and what their sexual history is....

I hope you do learn from your mistakes and practice safe sex henceforth.

Gooodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
