Window period and testing
      04/13/00 11:12 AM

I was hoping to talk with anyone out here who's in the window period like me. Exactly 60 days ago I had unprotected oral sex with a gay man who I have never met. This was incredibly stupid; I have no idea why I did this.

All I got in my mouth was a little pre-cum, so that is reassuring.

Since then, I went and had PCR tests done 14 and 33 days after exposure. Never had ARS. The 33 day test was done at Mass General Hospital, and I also had an Elisa test negative that day.

The doctors at Mass General told me that it's as close to a medical certainty as possible that I'm not infected.

I tested negative on standard antibody tests at 41 days and 53 days. As of today, we are looking at 60 days out. I will probably go in for another test from the clinic next Monday or Tuesday. They are great; results in 2 days.

I am just so scared. I need to let go of this, but it seems the further out I get, the more I worry about it. Is there anyone out here who has information on the window period? Rationally I know I should not be worried, but I still am.

Is anyone else going through this? I am looking for someone to talk with. I feel so alone and I would really welcome any talk or advice or help.

Thank you so much.
