Sad history... please help me... not fair...
      #179091 - 03/09/06 04:36 PM

It happened on October 2004, I had sex with a woman (she knew that maybe she was positive), the condom ripped... for a long while, I found out maybe 10 minutes later, blood involved... Convinced the girl to take a test, on November 2004, negative results for both of us. On july 2005 I got back with my ex girlfriend, before having any sexual encounter with her I got tested on that july (9 months after the risk). In october 2005 I received a call from the woman involved in the incident: she was positive now!!! I got really sad about her but... what about me? and my girlfriend? I got back to my girlfriend because I was sure I was negative, but some months after, that woman is positive, and maybe she was on the "window period" when I convinced her to get tested... Last week, I had what I think are swollen lypmh nodes, last two days, diarreah... went to the lab two hours ago, I'm getting the results tomorrow, I had negative results fourteen months after the risk (but with a rapid test), never used an ELISA, today I took a rapid test again... getting the results later... I've personally met a friend that seroconverted at 9-10 months, it happened just two years ago... I've also met people seroconverting at two months... but I think the possibility of seroconverting after six months is not really so rare... I don't care if I got infected, I`m sure I can handle it, but what about infecting someone else? I can't take it, and maybe it happened because I was trusting the guidelines... Wish is not like that...
Please help me...

there is alot of "educated guesses" about hiv, and sadly many do not want to admit, that the window period is one of them. I myself have been attacked by others for telling the truth about the window period. In fact, I am surprised that those who argue it, havent been by to attack you yet. It does happen, and it does happen more than lead to believe, Im glad you have shared this experience, because people need to know the truth, about something as devastating as HIV/aids...

Your test results will tell you soon enough about your status. Please don't fall into the trap of trusting someone elses results, for all you know, the other person could have gotten infected with unhealthy behaviors after being with you. and including an HIV test into an overall yearly health exam, is not a bad thing. Knowing your status is a BIG deal, with or without HIV. Using Latex/polyurethane condoms, along with water based lubricants, will eliminate the risks of getting hiv. It takes two irresponsible people to transmit te disease, but only takes one responsible one to stop the transmission....Good Luck & God Bless*
