Nervous about possible results...
      #250155 - 04/25/10 10:09 AM

Hi all, hopefully I can get a clear answer from someone here...

I'm 28yo bi male, and about two weeks ago I engaged in unprotected oral and anal (as the top) with a guy I met online. The encounter didn't last long, maybe about two 5 minute sessions. We talked a day or two before meeting and he assured me he was clean but couldn't give me a definate time frame on his last test. I got nervous thinking he might've been lying so I contacted him posing as a poz man and he never did respond. Although that gave me a bit of relief I still went and got tested for STD/HIV at the two day mark. I go in Thursday to get those results.

Tuesday will mark the 2 weeks since our encounter, I've read that 6 weeks is best to wait for a better assesment on testing, but would getting tested at two weeks give me any kind of idea on if I'm indeed neg or poz? So far I haven't had any symptoms of anything other than my neck is kinda sore and stiff, but that's probably from the way I was sleeping. I'm also thinking about getting one of those 20 minute same day tests done, can they be considered acurate?

"We talked a day or two before meeting and he assured me he was clean...."

and now you're looking for advice from us 'dirty' folks....... how nice

"I got nervous thinking he might've been lying so I contacted him posing as a poz man and he never did respond."

Gee I think it would have been easier just to assume he was HIV+ and decided that condoms would be in order. It is recommended that you always assume your partner may have HIV or another STD unless the two of you go test together.

Being the top was less risky for you. The estimated chance of transmission from insertive anal is 6.5 per 10,000 per the CDC, so you didn't have a great risk, but you certainly have play roulette with your health and life.

Your test post two days is trash can fodder. You won't get any useful information until 6 weeks.

Thanks for the feedback.

I realize that the test at two days is pretty much worthless, I was more interested in knowing if a test at two weeks out would be more concrete and give me a pretty good idea on what my 6 week test would reveal. That and if the rapid tests were reliable. If anyone has any experience with those tests that could let me know I'd appreciate it.
