      #243358 - 11/25/08 10:38 PM

i was raped twice on september 19th. the guy told me he had full blown aids and now i have hiv... over and over.... but he choked me unconcious and i didn't remember this until like two weeks ago... i got tested 60 days later (so did my boyfriend) and we came up negative. I'm just wondering what are the chances that this is an accurate result and the chances that this isn't accurate. thanks.

Hi there

The test is highly encouraging and might indicate you are negative. However some experts might ask you to do a 6 month test, if they assume the person had full blown AIDS... but personally, i think you are alright!

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

I'm sorry to hear about your rape. Just because someone has full-blown AIDS does NOT mean that every person they have sex with will acquire HIV. It just doesn't get transmitted that easily and there are so many factors that affect the transmission. If you are really in doubt, get tested again - but then breathe a big sigh of relief that you don't have HIV.
