INSIGHT? NEGATIVE AT 5 WEEKS!
      #268778 - 11/02/12 02:24 PM

I had a low exposure. A man rubbed his penis on my anus area and ejaculated. I know this is considered VERY low risk because there was no penetration but anxiety was eating me alive. So today 35 days, 5 weeks, past exposre I went to get an antibody test. NEGATIVE, NON REACTIVE. What do you guys think?

You had NO RISK not a low risk. We are not in the habit of giving attention to people with delusions.

So why don't you actually learn something and answer your own question after you do. Rather than bug us with silly school girl nonsense. Be a drama queen with your friends not us.

I really dont know if I offended you in some way, was not my intension. But I do believe this is a forum where we can come with our questions to seek support, not be abushed and humilated. This is were may can come to seek anxiety relief not be bullied off. I understand that my exposre was close to risk, but you may understand that anxiety is something that can be very ugly, along with HIV itself. We are here to learn about this virus, get some insight. I am sorry my fears are irrelevant to you but a simple "you are ok, no risk at all, move on" would have been suffice. This forum is for support with eachother. Something I am guessing you have no importance in.

You had no risk you where already told this nicely. Sorry if I hurt your delicate feelings for your mental health condition but this isn't a mental health board as you said it's an HIV board.

No matter what you think risk there was the fact and truth of the matter is you had ZERO nothing, less than zero risk for HIV. Again you were told this nicely by me even that you could move on as well. Everything you say you wanted just now has already been given to you. Yet you are still here why? Exactly what I said in your second post for the same exact thing you're a drama queen.

You know it would have been very easy for you to look up your answer without even asking and learning something. Bartby posts the link quite often but here it is again.

http://www.thebody.com/content/30024/hiv-transmission.html.

But instead your mental health again notice not an HIV problem refused to take that simple responsibility upon yourself to learn. Instead you imply that HIV is so infectious that you can't even be touched by someone without contracting it let alone have semen touch the outside of you. How childish and drama queenish.

So again I say no risk move on to a mental health forum after stopping by the link above and learning something.

Thank You for your time. In a way you made me realize that I am overreacting. I am not going to say you are the best person to approch an individual dealing with anxiety but I can see where you are coming from.

Ok I feel like venting so here goes: Your anxiety is not due to the possibility of an HIV transmission but rather, an utterly irrational fear! It is shit like this that perpetuates the stigma that HIV+ people are untouchables that should be shunned. HIV is not THAT easy to spread! Even if you have full-on anal sex with an HIV+ person, it is still not a guarantee that you will get HIV. Conversely, even if you claim to use a condom during anal sex, it is still not a guarantee that you won't get HIV (condoms could break, slip off, etc).

So in truth, no one can give you an absolute guarantee that you ARE or AREN'T infected. If you noticed, we only talk about risks, i.e higher risk or lower risk or virtually no risk. So:

Stop worrying
Take an HIV test regularly
Find out how HIV is transmitted
Use protection
