Waiting On Home Access Results Need Encouragement
      #98623 - 05/12/04 02:50 AM

Hi everyone. 8 weeks ago I had a low risk encounter - I was fingered by another guy (i'm gay). My main concern is that there may have been precum on his finger because he was jacking off before - but I'm not sure about this. I know he licked his finger before, and intermidently while fingering me (so maybe this took off any precum?) and I know he jacked off about two hours earlier, so maybe this reduced the possibility of him precumming in the first place? Sorry this is so graphic!

Anyway, I sent in my Home Access test yesterday at the 8 week mark. I know 13 weeks is considered conclusive by the CDC, but it seems like a growing number of people online, and in Masachusettes apparently, think that 6-8 weeks tests are PRETTY reliable. I called Home Access and the guy there told me 8 weeks if fairly reliable because the average person serconverts after 28 days, and this is twice that. Anyway - my question is: if my test comes back negative, and with such a low risk exposure, can I feel confident that I'm HIV negative? I also realize Home Access uses ELISA 1st generation - but I think Massachusettes still uses the 6 week mark for these tests. Any other info or encouragement would REALLY be appreciated. Thanks!

I would dream to have your RISK.

If you want to trade let me know. Just kidding.

Anyway, there is a THEORETICAL chance of this happening. Which means no way in HELL.

When you receive you NEG. Let us know and there will be no need for further testing.

And enjoy a finger up you ass. I've tried it and it's FUN.

I received unprotected oral sex and fingered a girl. I went and got tested (home access test) at 4 or 5 weeks. My result was negative. She got tested 3 or 4 weeks later and her result was negative.

Do I still have a chance of being inffected?
