Negative tests, but may have infected my boyfriend???!! PLEASE ADVISE....
I am a 30 year woman and was in previous relationship where HIV became an issue. I have tested ELISA 2,4,6,12 all out to 18 months after unprotected sex with him. Also with an viral load undectable at 18 month mark.
I recently had unprotected sex with my new boyfriend. And 2 weeks later he fell ill with fever, chills, vomitting and diarrhea. It lasted a little over 2 days and he is now feeling normal.
I am just soooooooo worried with fear that I have HIV and all my testing missed the infection...?? I'm devastated... And I don't know what to think??
Is it possible to miss an infection after all the testing I've had done?? Could I possibly have HIV and infected my new BF??
Please advise me on what actions I need take... Please....
Your repeatedly negative ELISA tests out to 18 months plus your undetectable HIV plasma viral load at 18 months are definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted.
Your boyfriend most likely just had a "48 hour bug," not HIV!
"Is it possible to miss an infection after all the testing I've had done???" Nope!
"Could I possibly have HIV and infected my new BF??" Nope! You can't give someone something you don't have to give!
As for action you need to take, that's easy:
Stop having unprotected sex!
Stop worrying about a past HIV infection that has been conclusively ruled out!
