Hi there,

What a terrible, terrible thing to go threw! I'm so sorry that has happened. It must be so horrible to live in such fear. Being that the rape has happened 10 years ago, and if you did contract HIV I think by now you would have had a few health complications that your doctors would have been able to detect. But instead of guessing and worrying yourself about it, take an HIV test. Depending on where you have it taken you will have the results within a week.

You can also order a private and confidential from HOMEACCESS.COM their tests are accurate and you will have results within 2-3 days. Their tests are pretty much the same test that are used in doctors offices. Good luck and keep us informed.

I just read your note and I wanted to ask when you had your children. Because now a days they test for hiv when you have your children. If your children are healthy you shouldnt have a problem. It is true that some children dont contract hiv even when their parents are positive but thats only because their doctor gave them something that would prevent their child from contracting hiv. I really dont think you have a problem. Just because you were raped dosent mean that every man in the world has hiv or aids. Get checked sweetie you might just be worring for nothing

Drugs cause aids not hiv! In Africa its poverty, malnutrition and aids drugs that kill.

Hi. I want to thank all that have responded back to me about the qustions i had. My childern are ages 10, 9, & 6 and yes they are all very healthy. I have been tested many times and they all came back negative. Thank-god! So maybe i am worried about nothing? I know not every guy has hiv but when you get raped and you don't know who it was, you get scared of getting something.
