HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Accuracy 6 years ago
      04/13/00 03:10 PM

I had a risky exposure about 6 1/2 years ago. It was a prostitute in Indonesia and the condom was no more by the time I finished. I was tested about 5 months later and it was negative. I've never given it a second thought until now. I'm married now and my wife is pregnant. Now I'm worried sick. I don't have sympoms such as fever or diahria (sp?), but have had a lot of headaches lately and sore necks since I started worrying. Like muscle sore, not lymph node sore ( I check those several times an hour too). I've also had some irratible bowel and occasional sore throat and excessive mucous in my throat after eating sometimes. I'm worried full-blown Aids is coming on. Plus I'm worried since my wife will probably be tested at her first prenatal visit in a couple weeks.

Someone on this forum said that at 5 months that you are 99.7% likely to be not infected. But that may be today. What about 6 years ago? 1993 to be exact. It was in the military so I don't know what kind of test it was. Basic ELISA I imagine. Any help appreciated.
