Yes, even I know that the tweezer thing is totally far-fetched. It's crossed my mind more than once that it could be a case of the media blowing things out of proportion. Overall my doctor was more concerned about hepatitis than HIV. I can provide you with a couple of links for the stories, if you'd like to look over them.

According to my boyfriend, he had been with two women between January and June (I don't know exactly when), but had not had vaginal or anal intercourse with either. Giving and receiving oral only.

All I've ever done with him is oral (both giving and receiving), swallowing max. 3 times and spitting max. twice. Even though there's still been oral-genital contact, I haven't allowed him to ejaculate in my mouth in months. He also once spurted some semen into my eye. All this is relatively low-risk, I'm sure you'll agree. Non-existant if he's still negative. His grandmother showed me the March results, so I know he wasn't lying about that.

He is my first serious relationship, so unless the nail salon did it ;) , there is no chance of me being infected prior to getting together with him.

Also, I've read that the use of corticosteroids can somehow affect the test results. Supposedly, they suppress the immune system in order to treat inflammation (rash). I've been using a prescribed hydrocortisone cream for a rash on my cheeks (hence the lupus test) for years. Any thoughts? I'm thinking of asking my dermatologist about it.
