HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Screwed up big time
      04/21/00 03:56 PM

Here's my story. Was in Japan, got drunk, let two Philipino's dancers take me home. Had vaginal sex with both, on one the condom broke. Just so happened afterward I found out she was on her period. Only time I've ever cheated. I've read all the data about percentages and waiting period. I've also read that with normal M-F sex there is a lesser chance of contraction than other types of sexual relations. Its been 3 weeks now and I haven't shown any symptoms that can't be explained or weren't pre-existing except for hot flashes which I don't think is a symptom. Does anyone have a creditable internet source for what my chance of are of having contracted HIV and if the fact that the wonman was on her period significantly increases the odds? I ordered two Home Access test kits which I plan to take at the 2 and 4 month points. I plan to order an additional one plus a Hep test for the six month point. I'm well aware of the neg at 6 months means you are clean. The waiting period is taking quite a toll on me. Can't say I don't deserve the tremendous stress I'm under. This whole self-induced event has certainly made me reflect on what is important in my life and if all turns out well, I'll be a better husband and father for it. Luckily I won't be home for another 7 months and spreading it to my wife isn't a concern (nor anyone else, I've learned my lesson the hard way). I'll know for sure by the time I see her again. I look at my kids pictures and am amazed at how I may have easily thrown all that away in a drunken stuper. Made giving up drinking real easy. Once again if anyone has a good source for the odds I asked about earlier ... (haven't been able to locate an authoritative source), I'd really appreciate it.
