      #86714 - 02/09/04 07:26 PM

hi, im 18. 3 mnoths ago i had unprotected sex with a guy of unknown status. i know that he was promisicous and never used condoms before me. i tested negative after 3 months, but i read posts on here and now im scared.

1. i have psoirasis on my scalp (mildly) and the posts on here say it can make the window period longer!! ?!?!
2. i have a yeast infection that wont go away. ive had it for about 2 mnoths but just found out that it was a yeast infection, so maybe because i waited so long, it'll take longer to go away, right?

IM SO SCARED IM TOO YOUNG TO FEEL LIKE THIS!!! can one of you great people help me, PLZ PLZ PLZ

Honey- are almost 100% fine. Your symptoms are not HIV and you have tested negative. Let me give you some real advice:

1-Use condoms if you don't know the dude. If he says NO, you say NO louder. Walk AWAY.

2-Remember, this is a disease that is not easy to catch and one time of unprotected sex still leaves the odds very much in your favor-but do NOT take this as "permission" to repeat what you have done. Use condoms and then you will have NO worries..OK?

3-Enjoy your life.

Hey, I understand your concern, as I recently went through a scare of my own, except my partner definitely tested positive.

The CDC says that a 13 week result is conclusive, you are negative. Congrats. Be sure to be safe in the future.
